when can i start doing my sit ups. my son is a week old today.

I'm ready to lose this baby tummy. So when would it be safe for crunches and sit ups. Keep in mind. I had a vaginal birth and a few stitches.

  • I have heard anywhere from 1 week up to 4-6 weeks. I personally wanted the break and waited 6 weeks. You could try a few and wait a day. If you're not too sore you're probly ready.
