In brief: Muscle compensation
It sounds like you have been compensating through your upper back, arms and neck since having your child (from holding her, daily child activities, postures etc).
I would recommend seeing a physical therapist who can evaluate your posture, movement patterns, and muscle imbalances. From there he/she can provide treatment and give you a home program to help yourself.
