What's Your Standing Style?

Mothers with newborns have some of the worst postures I've seen. Between feeding their baby, rocking them to sleep, or holding them while attempting to reach for the diaper bag and assuring to keep his or her neck stable, mom's often find themselves to be quite the contortionists. Even though comical when describing, these adapted postures can be minor to the extreme. Check out the postures below and see if you have caught yourself in one or more of these categories.

The Hunchback - where mom has spent numerous hours nursing her babe and has now conformed her body in that position- rounded shoulders, rounded upper back, head and neck bent forward. (left)
