should we hold baby on hand at all time?

My girl (3+ years old) is very lazy to walk. She likes to be carried, especially with grandma who likes to carry her since she was a baby. I don't like to "help" her walk. Do you think keep carrying a baby on hand will become a habit when they turn to toddler? Or I should have carry her even more so the result will be different? any mum has experienced this before? and what was the result when they turn older ?

My son always like to carry tell me his sleepy. 3y + too. Weight 15.5kg. I told him I can't carry anymore at age 2y +. Even if I carry, it is not more then 5 mins. because he is getting heavier... And doc advice not to carry heavy weight etc explaining to him. We usually we will take a stroller out or ask him ride his balancing bike.
