Your body goes through a lot after you have a baby, and getting back into shape after having a baby can be really tough.

But, if you make the right moves and do the right things, you’ll get that pre-baby body back in no time!

Just follow these simple and easy instructions to get back into shape after having a baby.

1. Walk

That’s right, walk.

It’s pretty easy and you can do it with your baby with no trouble.

Walk around the block a few times, walk around your house a few times - just walk!2

The simplicity of this exercise is why it tops my tips to get back into shape after having a baby.

2. Dance with Your Baby

Hold your baby close and do a little jig for a while.

I had an eight pound baby and I used to just put him in the front pack and dance to do everything.

Shimmy when you’re doing dishes or vacuuming;

even a little bit of movement is enough to burn a few calories.

3. Baby Squats

This is a workout that I liked to do a lot when my son was younger.

Now that he’s 25 pounds and he won’t sit still it’s a little harder.

But, do squats while holding your baby.

I know it seems a little silly but my thighs were my hardest hurdle when I was trying to tone up after I had my son (during bikini season no less!).

But I found that if I did about 10 squats about 8 (work your way up to this) times a day, my thighs toned up pretty quickly.

4. The Bridge

Did you know crunches are actually terrible for firming a post baby belly?

Now think back to when you were a kid and you used to do that cool back bend.

This is kind of like that.

Only now you put your feet flat on the floor just below your bottom and with your shoulders also on the floor you push your belly up.

Sound easy right?

That’s because it is.

I did this for 30 seconds ten times as a bit of a warm up and it worked wonders.

Plus it was easy… and a little bit fun.
