Hi I'm new to this forum and was hoping some of you may have advice.

My partner and I are expecting our first child in October.  I have relatively mild CP which mainly affects my walking and balance.  I walk with a limp and have some struggles with balance on uneven surfaces etc.  Im generally fine on stairs but struggle if I'm carrying things where i cant hold on to the rail.  

As the due date gets closer im increasingly worried about carrying the baby up and down the stairs etc.  I think i should be fine if i put them into a carry cot and use the rail with the other hand.  Just wondering if anyone has any tips, experiences or can recommend any products that might help.
