After you had your baby how did you do it so your tummy can go back to normal again?

did you wear a girdle, waist cincher, corset faja etc? or just plain oh boring situps? because situps didnt work for me infact it made me a hernia.

  • Yeah, the mid-section was never the same. Although I must say that my body was at its very best when my son was about 5. But I was working out 5 days a week then and doing some intense ab work. Now I use a body slimmer under my clothes, when necessary. And just try to watch what i eat. 'cause any weight I gain goes right to the belly.

  • You have to do cardiovascular work, like aerobics, walking, running, ballet, pilates to get that belly back!

  • I'll tell ya when it happens . . lol . . I have an eliptoglider, but I really haven't had a chance to use it, but I agree with the poster who said that you have to do cardio, sit ups won't do anything but strengthen the muscle underneath. You have to do cardio to remove the fat. Good Luck Mama . . . I'm right there with ya!

  • I just went back to my regular workout and my belly eventually went back to normal...or as normal as it gets after having a baby anyway. It's always going to be a little "relaxed" there from all that strectching.

  • I breastfed and lost all my baby weight (plus some!) because of it.
