Lose That Baby Weight!

Perhaps one of the trickiest times physically in the life of a mother is the first year after baby is born. Even if mom was healthy throughout pregnancy, the body doesn’t exactly bounce back at lightning speed like many Hollywood stars would lead us to believe. The urge to do crash diets and exercise programs might be strong with all the extra layers mom packed on during pregnancy. This can be difficult, however, with the demands of new motherhood and the effort needed to recover from labor and delivery, especially in the first few months. For nursing mothers it is especially tricky, since it is recommended they consume at least 1500-1800 calories per day to maintain a healthy milk supply.
So what can new moms do to hasten the return to their pre-baby shape in a healthy way? There are loads of theories and guides to help mom lose the baby weight (with doctor’s permission, of course). Check out some of the many items owned by SCCLD that can help you on the path to safe weight loss post-baby, and reserve your copy today!
