What age did you stop picking up your child and/or carrying them be it a long or short way? Dd is 4 and 8mths old and I still sometimes if she is really tired and I don't have a stroller on me but if I don't have much to carry I'd rather put her on my shoulders as she is just too big now she only weighs 16kg (last time I weighed her) but is just so long. So when did you stop all together?

Carrying - when did you stop?

Perhaps early 3's. I refuse to carry him as he is too heavy now. I will pick him up for a cuddle but thats about it.

DD is 4.5 and I'll still carry her when she's tired and cranky. It will have to stop soon though, she's about 23 kgs and super tall.

Ds is 3.5 years old but 20kgs and just to heavy for me. I havent carried him for at least 9 months. Probably since 2.5 he was 18kgs back then and tall. I always take the double pram if i think i will be a long time or if he is tired and out of sorts to begin with. But no i dont ever carry him dd who is 18months is enough. That said I do still pick him up at times.

I will still carry my 8yo if needed. Not long distances, just short distances.

We still sometimes carry our son who is almost 3.5 if he's tired or being a brat or anxious. Thankfully he is not very heavy at 15kg.
Some old biddy told my partner that our son was too old to be carried. lucky for her my partner is more polite than I am.

DS1 is almost 4 and 23kg... I can't carry him for long as he's just too heavy for me.

I don't carry DS anymore as he's nearly 6 but sometimes carry DD1 when she's tired or upset she's 4.5 & 15 kgs so still quite light.

DD is 6.5 and 24kg. I still lift her and carry her short distances. Sometimes I carry her to bed, other times she's hurt herself so I'll carry her. Sometimes I lift her up so she can see things (she likes to look in petshop windows, but they're always off the ground, so she can't see in unless I lift her).
I've carried her sleeping from the car to her bed as well.
It's a hell of a struggle, especially now... now she's like... a bit less than a 1/3 of my weight... lol. But I manage.

I still carry DD (2.5) all the time!!! Mostly because I can control her when I'm carrying her. Lol. She is a runner
