Post Partum Weight Loss: Take Care of Yourself and Your Baby
For a new mom, the world revolves around the baby. Feedings and diaper changes occur day and night. New moms are often advised to take time for themselves but find it difficult to achieve. Many desire to lose the pregnancy weight but don’t know where or how to start.
Before beginning an exercise program it is important to be cleared by your doctor. Typically you have to wait until 6 weeks after the delivery at which point you will have a checkup. The doctor will let you know what level of exercise you are ready for.
Keep in mind that the benefits of exercise go beyond losing weight. Exercise will boost your energy level and improve your mood. Research has shown that exercise can prevent post partum depression. Your abdominal muscles will need to be restored following pregnancy and exercise will accelerate the process.
Many women worry that exercise to achieve post partum weight loss will have an adverse effect on breast milk. Family members may tell a new mom that exercise will reduce the breast milk volume or the composition of the milk. The truth is that exercise has not been shown to negatively impact a nursing infant’s growth. If you are concerned that high intensity physical activity will cause lactic acid to accumulate in the breast milk, start out with moderate physical activity. Also verify you are drinking plenty of fluids throughout the day and during the workout.
Tips for successful post partum weight loss include:
- Nurse your baby immediately prior to exercising to increase your comfort level.
- Invest in a supportive bra and nursing pads.
- Take the time to warm up and cool down appropriately.
- Stop exercising if you feel pain.
- Look for a post partum class or a post partum personal trainer (us) to aid you in exercising appropriately. TV Celebrities do not return to the pre-pregnancy bodies that quickly without assistance from professionals!
- If you are feeling too tired for a workout on a certain day, don’t skip it entirely. This can lead to a sedentary routine. Do what you can so that you maintain a active routine.
- Seek support from your partner. This will allow you to schedule time for exercise while your partner is focusing on the baby.
- If it is difficult to find the time away from your baby incorporate your baby. Have the baby in the stroller or on the floor next to you while you are exercising. You will be setting a good example for your child.
Keep in mind that exercising after pregnancy may not be easy. Don’t be hard on yourself. Realize it will take time for your body to return to the condition it was in prior to the pregnancy.
