My best advice to aid in bouncing back quickly after pregnancy is to buy a Belly Bandit!
A Belly Bandit is a compression wrap created with the purpose to help tighten and shrink your tummy back to its pre-pregnancy size and trust me it does just that! I wish I had known about it when I had my first son but since I didn't I got to see first hand what a dramatic difference using a belly bandit does make comparing the experiences. I would like to clarify that I am by no means trying to place too much importance or pressure on getting back into shape. I just think that any step you can take to feel like your old self again and regain your confidence is a positive one! When I had my 2nd son I was informed about the Belly Bandit and was intrigued to try it out. I wore it the first two nights in the hospital and could not believe how great I had felt upon leaving compared to my first pregnancy. I was a bridesmaid in my Brother and Sister in law's wedding and was able fit comfortably in a size 8 dress 10 days after giving birth!(Along with the use of a good shaper lol) I am typically a size 6. My first experience in losing the baby weight I did pilates daily to regain my pre-baby shape. The second time around I had very little time to devote to working out with a 3 year old and a newborn and I really owe the majority of regaining my pre-baby figure to the belly bandit. When my daughter was born there was no question I'd be implementing the belly bandit again and it worked like a charm. The belly bandit also aids in the prevention of stretch marks, supports your posture, helps your clothes fit more comfortably and reduces swelling.
