Back to school time!

School is coming quickly and the backpacks are going on sale! We went to pottery barn kids to get ours today. We are still in the lower grades, so there isn’t that much that goes into a backpack , just yet. (So, we can still buy those cute backpacks.) I like Pottery Barn’s backpacks because they have padded straps, and a fastener for across the chest. They also have different sizes so we can buy one that doesn’t hang below my daughter’s waist. If you have an older child that carries heavy books, you may want to consider ordering an ergonomic backpack with a lumbar cushion. Also keep in mind the weight of the backpack should be no more than 15% of their body weight.
Enjoy your back to school shopping and be mindful of your child’s spine and therefore their health!
