Sometimes in order to get some exercise in you just have to do it with your baby. Once baby is sleeping there are just so many practical things you need to do, or maybe you simply need a little nap too. Here a video that I hope will inspire you to get started on exercising after giving birth. In some of the exercises your baby will be an additional weight, in some your baby will be there to motivate you with little sweet smiles and “cheering” you on and there will even be a bit of tummy time for your baby to ‘get in’ some exercise as well. Take this video as an inspiration to get started and most importantly have FUN with it, – both of you! Subscribe for more videos 😉
With my first born I often found myself sitting staring at him (enjoying him ;)), carrying him around and placing him different places… I wanted to do things with him, but when the babies are around 0-5 months old it can be a challenge to figure out what to do with the little one. This time I started doing these exercises with my baby and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share with you guys. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
The series I’ve made with my baby, is to be seen as an inspiration. You can follow along or do it your own way, deciding the number of repetitions yourself. You will notice that it depends a lot on your baby’s mood, how much/little you will get done! Exercising with your baby is a lot different than exercise on your own, you should both have fun with it and then your results will be just an extra benefit.
For me this was a great start on exercise postpartum and really helped me to slowly get back in shape respecting my body’s healing process and my baby’s needs at the same time. My baby is here 4 months old. Take your time with it, once you get started you’ll quickly get motivated to do more, and then you can check out all my other videos.
