  • Take the baby for a walk. If you have a baby carrier, that will help with his or her being needy. Or, my favorite - play your favorite dance music and dance with your baby. My mom got me Fisher Price's Dance, Baby, Dance! I play it every day and dance with my boys for about a half hour.

  • We got a exercise bike and it's in the bedroom. I put the baby on the bed for tummy time and work out on the bike. I try to do it in the morning. I was trying to do it at night or mid day but I would be so tired by even 1pm.

  • Take it slow at first. And do what the other answerer (lol) said, get a treadmill or bike, or my personal favorite - eliptical machine and keep it in a room of your house you think you will be more inclined to use it. Do it during baby's nap or like ladykiki said - during tummy time.

  • I had a disabled son who was three and then I had triplets what I did was twenty minutes a day before they woke up every other day. Then I added ten minutes to the other days and it worked for me. Thats all I have time for...Good luck!

  • I like to walk around, kid in my arms, and lift my knees as high as I can and tighten as many muscles in my butt, back, legs, and abs as I can...
