What’s more fun than cranking up the music and dancing with your baby? This activity is especially great for rainy days when you can’t get out. Try making a thirty minute play list of you and your baby’s favorite songs and dance your way through them. You will both have fun being silly and you will burn calories!
2. Join a mom and baby exercise class
A really great way to get active and fit with your baby is to join a mom and baby exercise class. There are tons out there, and they can be a lot of fun. Not only will you and baby bond, but you will get to meet tons of other moms!If you stay at home with baby, this is a great way to get you out of the house and socializing with other moms, and of course, get you fit!
3. Walk the dog
Another great way to get active with baby is to take the dog for walks. Walking is a great way to stay healthy and fit. We recommend you get a routine going, have your morning coffee and then take the dog and baby for a walk around the neighborhood. Try going a little bit farther every day to motivate you!
4. Make tummy time workout time
The next time your baby has tummy time, pick up a few weights. While your baby is having fun on their play mat, you can squeeze in a few arm curls. This is great, because you can still talk to and watch baby. You’ll be surprised how toned you can get from lifting weights a few minutes every day.
