Getting back into my regular exercise routine post baby was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Throw in the fact that my first post partum period returned a lot sooner that I would have liked it to, and I had a recipe for not wanting to hit the gym.

But then I realized that the gym was not the only solution for adding some exercise back into my life. I had been hearing a lot about a local mommy and me yoga class where moms could bring their infants and incorporate them into their workouts. I signed up and was happy that I did. But then, there was the period fact. Ugh.

I was not yet ready to start using tampons again, so I had to fall back on using a pad. STAYFREE® Ultra Thin® Regular was the right choice because it gave me the protection I needed while keeping me fresh and moving with my body.

Downward dog or sun salutations, I forgot I was even wearing a pad, and that's a good thing. I was able to move right through a class, and was even  ready to mix and mingle with other new moms before heading out.

Moms, how did you keep moving and get back into your regular routines after pregnancy?

I use exercise videos. When my kids were new, I just walked with them.

I took lots of walks with the baby and when my second was born I got a trailer and we went bike riding. I joined a gym when my youngest started school.
