     You're probably so busy looking after your newborn that you haven't had time to think about yourself. Here is some information and ways of   how you can deal with your baby and adjusting to life as a new mum.


Everyone warns you that having a baby will change your life. Sure, you'll have less money (and sleep), and a lot more responsibility. You may start to look at your baby in the mirror instead of yourself. Doing a little bit of make up in the morning and change into something comfortable other then running in your nightgown all day will help you to be more aware of how you look.

As the baby blues will start to decrease and a few weeks will pass you will start to feel a lot better especially if you had a caesarean birth. When the time is right it’s ideal to maybe join a gym and attend to classes where new mummies like you attend with their babies. Apart from the fact that your keeping yourself fit, you will also have the opportunity to socialise and meet new friends.

You might also want to consider purchasing a some kind of fitness equipment for home use. These machines are great for getting back into shape in the privacy of your own home, at your own pace, and on your own schedule. Remember, the effects of the hormone relaxing stay in your body for between three and five months after birth, so don't overdo it and watch your technique. Always remember to consult your doctor before starting any new exercises.

Another option is to use an exercise video at home with your baby nearby. Just make sure she's safely sleeping or secure in a baby seat,
high chair, or playpen where there is no danger of tripping over her. Chances are, she'll get a kick out of watching you dance and when she’ll start moving around she might even be tempted to try it for herself. Without even knowing this could turn into something cheerful and fun.
