Get ready to work out with baby!
Once your doctor gives you the thumbs up, usually at your six-week postpartum checkup, you can ease back into physical activity. Not only will working out help you get back into shape, it will amp up your energy level and help keep postpartum depression at bay.
Note: Exercises where baby is in a carrier should only be done once your child has full head and neck control and has reached the minimum age for your carrier’s front-facing carry, often around five months.
