After nine long months of anticipation, you finally had the baby! You and your husband are so excited for the newest addition to your family. As excited as you are to have baby, you are not so excited about the baby weight that has decided to stick around. Ladies, I’ve been there, and it’s not fun! However, with a little exercise and a healthy diet, you can have that dreaded baby weight off in no time! Here are five ways you can burn off that baby weight:
Smoothies are one of my favorite snacks. It’s a great way to start the morning off, healthy and yummy! Now, there are two types of smoothies you could make, fruit and veggie. When making a fruit smoothie, make sure to add the healthiest of fruits. I think blueberries and strawberries are a good place to start. For veggie smoothies, try using a few superfoods. Kale is a great one to use! You could also mix the two types of smoothies, kale and blueberries is a double whammy of healthiness!
2. Get active
One of the best ways you can lose the baby weight is by being active. Even if it’s just a 30 minute walk it can help. The faster you get movin’, the quicker the baby weight will come off. Being active is a lifestyle choice and even if it’s a struggle at first, after 30 days it will become routine. After working out you feel happier, less stressed, have more energy and when you see the pounds drop you will be even happier.
3. Mommy and me classes
Another way to burn off the baby weight is at mommy and me classes. Bring your padded play mat with you; you’re going to need it! Taking a class with other moms who are going through the same thing as you will help you to get ideas about how to be healthy and they will serve as a motivator to help you succeed!
4. Enjoy the outdoors
Some people just don’t like going to the gym. That’s okay! There are tons of other ways you can get fit without having a gym membership. Whether snowshoeing, skiing, swimming, biking, hiking or playing tennis, any of these outdoor sports will help you reach your goal.
5. Find a friend
If you have a friend who is also trying to lose their baby weight, this will help to keep you on track. Invite your girlfriend over for walks, babies invited too! It has been proven that people who have a buddy along for the ride are more likely to stick to their workouts and eating plans

Written by Jennifer Cicci of Babee Talk
As a mother, Jennifer understands the importance of offering nothing by the best for baby. Motivated by teeth marks on her children’s cribs, she decided to design a teething rail cover after trying products that didn’t measure up when it came to quality or style. What she found out made her even more concerned about children’s safety and health: The toxic chemicals used in the production of synthetic materials have been linked to birth defects, reproductive disorders, and weakened immune systems.
She asked herself, “What if I could revolutionize the way parents decorated their crib with a safe and stylish teething rail cover that could be placed on the crib from day one?” Babee Talk® launched in 2014 with organic bedding and accessories. Chew-friendly, drool-friendly, and organic inside and out, her products ensure a healthy start in life for babies.
She only offers products that she would provide for her own children. She hopes moms and dads will start to talk about the importance of choosing safe, healthy, eco-friendly products, especially for babies.
