The Daily Halacha Moment - Child & Muktzeh 🧒 📱
״כל השונה הלכות בכל יום - מובטח לו שהוא בן העולם הבא״ (נידה עג ע״א, מגילה כח:)
“Anyone who studies Halachot every day is guaranteed that he is destined for the world-to-come” (Megilla 28b, Niddah 73a)
May one pick up a child if he is holding a Muktzeh item?
Interesting question. One is not permitted to hold a child who is holding muktzeh. Therefore, if a child is holding muktzeh, one must wait for the child to put the muktzeh down before picking up the child.  However, if the child is dependent on the parent, and is in a situation where the child cannot be left alone with the muktzeh, then the child may be moved while holding the muktzeh. Even in this case, if the child is holding a muktzeh item that is very valuable  then the child may not be picked up with the muktzeh in his hand,  and one may not even hold the child’s other hand and walk with him without picking him up. 
. See the Mishnah and Gemara in Shabbat 141a. See also Orchot Shabbat 19:258 states that one can shake the hand of the child so that he drops the muktzeh so that one can pick him up.
. See Ben Ish Chai, Vayigash, 2:9 and Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchatah 22:43 explain that the child doesn’t actually have to get sick in order to be permitted to pick him up. See also Chazon Ovadia, Shabbat, vol. 3, p. 171.
. See Chayeh Adam 67:16; Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchatah 22:40; Chut Shani, Shabbat, vol. 3, p. 150.
. Shulchan Aruch 309:1; Chazon Ovadia, Shabbat, vol. 3, p. 170; Halichot Olam, vol. 3, p. 214. Even when it is permitted to pick up the child while he is holding muktzeh, this is not permitted in a public place that does not have an eruv, See Mishnah Berurah 309:1.
. Shulchan Aruch HaRav 309:2; Ben Ish Chai, Vayigash, 2:9; Halichot Olam, ibid.; Shemirat Shabbat KeHilchatah 22:43.
