You certainly can aggravate your pectoralis muscle by lifting your child. The muscle is already irritated due to the breast augmentation. You should rest and medicate the muscle if possible. A reevaluation by your plastic surgeon is appropriate.

It is certainly possible that you strained a muscle while picking up your child. This should not lead to capsular contracture unless it caused some bleeding, which would not be expected 25 days following surgery. You should talk to your surgeon about your concerns.
Spasm of pectoralis muscle after a breast augmentation not a cc
What you are describing is a spasm of the pectoralis muscle. This is not unusual and will get better over time. Certain activities may make the muscle go in to spasm. This will not cause a capsular contracture.
