Get in the swim. Working out in the water is wonderful for both of you. You'll enjoy feeling weightless after all those months of feeling huge, and she'll enjoy the simple act of splashing her tiny hands. And exercising with baby in the water is simple — you can use your baby as a weight by holding her beneath the arms and lifting her up, then lowering her back into the pool; or, get a pint-sized "boat" (make sure it's safe) she can float in while you do your thing next to her.
While you exercise with baby, avoid forcing any poses or moves to prevent injury to you or your little exercise buddy. While exercise for mom offers many benefits, including reduction of anxiety, stress and likelihood of postpartum depression, the opportunity to bond when you exercise with your newborn is a bonus from which you both benefit.
Exercise for mom doesn't have to involve a class or an instructor. Sneak in exercise with baby by doing lunges to lull your little one off to dream land. Raise and lower your baby into the air for an ab and arm workout. Or do sit-ups in a game of peek-a-boo with your little darling in your lap to make exercise with baby fun for you both.
Join a "mommy and me" class. The ultimate in exercising with baby! Check your local Y or newspaper, or look online for classes in your neck of the woods.
