Even though getting enough time or the motivation to workout is a challenge for most new mothers, exercise is really beneficial. New mothers can start exercising three months after childbirth. Get permission from your GP and decide. That’s all it takes. Here are simple workouts you can do with your baby.
Lie on your back on the floor. Bend your legs and plant your feet firmly on the ground. Get your baby and hold him or her in an airplane mode. Slowly lift up your baby and bring the baby back down slowly as well. Repeat this up and down motion, laying down 10 times.
Sit up straight cross-legged on the floor. Make sure you back is straight. Hold your baby in front of you and keep your baby at your eye level. Now lift your baby up slowly and away from your body. Bring the baby back down slowly. Repeat this 10 times.
Lie on your back with your legs up. Now bend your knees and bring them to a 90 degree fold. Place your baby gently on your legs so your baby is parallel to the floor and facing you. Hold on to your baby’s hands. Now slowly straighten your legs and move them away from you. Bring your legs back slowly and repeat the movement 10 times.
Stand up straight. Hold your baby in front of you. Spread your legs and keep your feet apart a little more than shoulder width. Now slowly squat down and try to go as low as you can. Focus on your legs and repeat 10 times.
Take a simple walk up and down the stairs or out in the open.
