1. Listen to your body
You have just completed a wonderful work; You have developed another human being within yourself in the last nine months. Your body went through a lot of things. Now when you are trying to be normal, do not put any more burden on it. Although you will be desperate to resume workouts to lose weight due to your baby, it is very important that you allow your body to rest in the first six months postpartum and make sure you get permission from your doctor. . If you are doing well and feel that you can do a little more hard work, do light stretching exercises and walking exercises to get your body ready for a gradual workout.

2. Pay attention to postpartum diet and nutrition
Despite limited physical activity in the first few weeks of the postpartum period, you can work towards achieving your goals. This is a good time to pay attention to diet and nutrition. Take time to eat! I love to eat. I am usually a person who always thinks about what to eat after this, but as a new mother, I found it very easy not to eat food. It takes time to raise a newborn and it is tiring. Although it seems that there is no time to eat, it is very important to take time for this. If you don't take care of yourself, you won't be able to take care of your baby. If you eat well you will feel much better.

Eating a nutritious diet is the key to helping your body recover, gaining sufficient energy during the day, and reducing unwanted weight. As far as possible, try to eat clean, whole, unrefined foods. Try to eat lots of fruits, vegetables, and low-fat meat. For mothers who breastfeed, I recommend including foods that increase milk production in your diet, such as coconut, oatmeal, dark leafy vegetables, bone broth, and brown rice. You can also try to include a milk supplement to help keep your milk volume high.

Many times, new mothers make the mistake of not consuming sufficient amount of calories in the process of reducing their postpartum weight. However, if you breastfeed, it is especially important to ensure that you eat enough food and increase your calorie intake. By paying attention to the right foods, you can lose weight even after consuming enough calories.

Nowadays antenatal nutrition and supplementary support are very much discussed; Unfortunately, more guidance is not available for the postpartum period. I recommend taking postpartum vitamins. I try to get all the nutrients from food sources, but it is quite possible that some vitamins and minerals, especially essential for lactating mothers, are missed or not found in sufficient quantity. Like any supplement, be sure to ask your doctor before taking anything.

3. Stay hydrated
When I started getting milk, I felt very thirsty. It seemed that I was not drinking enough water. It is very important to remain hydrated to maintain the right amount of milk, but it is beneficial for non-lactating mothers too! This can help increase energy, aid weight loss, improve your cardiovascular health, and improve your brain health. Does your brain work like a mother's brain? Make sure you take half your weight of beverages in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, you need about 75 ounces of water per day. If you are bored with plain water, try adding some water enhancer to improve the flavor.

4. Do not ignore your mental health
Postpartum depression is a reality and, unfortunately, is more common than you think. It is estimated that 1 in 7 women experience postpartum depression. Adjusting to your new life can be difficult when you have to sleep, face your new body, experience the fluctuations of hormones, and simultaneously take care of a new baby. This can be a huge task. Be on the lookout for signs of postpartum depression and make sure you are taking time out for yourself every day.

Breathing exercises can be a great way to cope with new excess stress and can help your abdominal muscles recover. It can be profitable in every way! You can also take a strain of an anti-stress drink to get some relief from that stress. Find a drink that contains magnesium, which has been shown to reduce anxiety.

Some other exercises useful in reducing stress include meditation or yoga. Nowadays free meditation app and guidance for doing yoga exercises are easily available. You can also try to take a relaxing bath or read a good book. Find a work that can help you get relief from that stress.

5. Follow a good postpartum exercise routine
I believe very much in exercising as soon as I wake up in the morning. When you try to do it later in the day, something always comes up. Especially when your whole day is spent taking care of someone else.

By the time you get time to workout, you start to feel tired. No matter how backward it may seem, exercising as soon as you wake up can help regain energy. Don't get me wrong — getting up early in the morning may seem torture in the first few days, but after a good workout you get a feeling like a super powerful mother.

I like to get up early in the morning so that I can exercise well before my baby wakes up, have a good breakfast, and drink lots of water. Everything is very good in the days when I can do it. My mood remains good and I am able to do a lot of work throughout the day. Find a routine that suits you and keep it going.

6. Do not exercise excessively, and choose the right postpartum exercises
It is important not to overdose when you finally start exercising. Your body has gone through many things, and it is more likely that you will not return to your former state. Remind yourself that this is going to take a while.

For best results, I recommend both strength training and cardio. Start with slow and easy intensity exercises and then increase the intensity gradually. High-intensity interval training, or HIIT, is a great way to reduce fat, but you should start slowly and move towards high-intensity exercises.
