5 (More!) Exercises For Mommies and Babies

By EmilyBMalone |

It's fast, it's fun, and it's FREE!

As my son continues to be more awake and full of personality each day, I’m finding I have less and less time for fitting in personal things. Things like eating, returning phone calls, drying my hair, and most definitely working out.  I still haven’t gone back to my gym yet, even though Cullen is technically old enough for the childcare there. Until I cross that bridge, I’m doing my best to find ways to incorporate Cullen into my workouts, which is fun for both of us!

Last week I shared with you the 5 Exercises You Can Do (At Home!) With Your Baby. This week, I have five more for you!  You can sneak them in all at once, or one by one as you find time throughout your day. They are quick, easy (depending on the weight of your baby!), and best of all, FREE!

5 (More!) Workouts For Mommies and Babies

Leg Lifts (Part One)

Start by laying on your back on a soft rug or yoga mat. With your knees bent, carefully balance your baby on your legs so that he is supported and stabilized. (This one is not recommended when baby has a full belly - watch out!)

Before starting any exercise program, talk to your doctor and make sure you are healed and ready for exercise. Only do what feels comfortable for your body and your baby!

Thanks very much to Brita for sponsoring this post. Check out more posts in this campaign.

    the best strength exercises you can do, are exercises done slowly.. witch make these exercises the best thing for your body after giving birth…just remember to wait till your baby is strong enough to hold up its head.. ;)

    It really upsets me to see this. I think this is a very inresponsible posting. On wrong move or Mom losing her balance and this innocent child lands on his head. BAD BAD idea!!!!!!!!
