Ask any new mom, and finding the time to workout it hard! Between getting next to no sleep, and constantly feeding and holding a baby, finding the time to go to the gym is near impossible. You all know I have had a ton of success and am obsessed with at-home programs, like T25. But my latest obsession: babywearing! I was blind to the babywearing world when my twins were little, but now that Emme is here, I absolutely LOVE wearing her! She loves it too, and immediately falls asleep in her wrap, making it so easy for me to get some cleaning or cooking done. So, I figured, why not get my work out in too?!

*Safety first! Take it easy, go at your own pace, and focus on form. Be aware that if you are newly postpartum, your balance may slightly be off. Be sure to not move too quickly and to feel stable and secure with each exercise.
*Be aware of babies head. Anytime I am not using my arms in an exercise, my hand is usually resting on baby’s head. This is especially important for moms of newborns. Be sure baby’s head is stable and not bouncing around with your movements!
