Weight Loss After Baby

Stress-Easing Workout

Here's an excellent at-home postpartum workout that will not only help you grab some moments of decompression during the crazy, early months of motherhood, but will also give you great bonding time with your baby.

The only other exercise “equipment” you need besides your litte one is a chair. Begin at six weeks postpartum (or earlier if bleeding has stopped and your C-section scar—if you have one—is healing).

Get Your Abs Back

Name a movie star, model or neighbor who looks fantastic and who is also a new mom. Got someone in mind? Well, there you have it: proof-positive that getting back in shape after having a baby is possible. With a little healthy know-how, there’s no physical reason why you can’t have a great postpartum body — even a flat belly. In this special section, we’ll give you a progressive workout to get your body, especially your abdominal muscles,  looking better than ever. We’ll also provide tips on changing your eating habits to meet your postpartum weight goals.

Get Your Abs Back

If you've had a Cesarean section, wait eight weeks or until the incision has healed. But always check with your doctor before you start this or any new exercise program. Begin with one move; once you can complete 15 reps, add a second move, finally progressing to three moves, 15 reps each.

Yesterday, Truman, now 18 months, had one of those days: He just wouldn't eat anything. Believe me, I tried. I started the day offering him a banana, raisins, a slab of whole-grain toast with almond butter and apricot preserves—no, no, no. Having failed that, then fresh sliced strawberries with yogurt and honey. Uh-uh. Multigrain toaster waffles? Forget it.
