First, I love seeing what new moms name their children. I am personally a fan of unique names. So after reading this article, apart from sharing your experience of losing weight with us, you can also tell us what you named your child (first name) and the way you felt when he or she was first put in your arms. Now, I give warm congratulations on that bundle of joy you gave birth to. Children can be a lot of fun. However, the weight that you gain during the nine months of pregnancy is not as fun. Losing that weight is even worse. New mothers are facing many nightmares as their body swells up and they are not able to lose the weight. I too went through the same problem. When I first got pregnant, I had people telling me to say goodbye to the nice body. Well, sure, you can say goodbye to the fit skinny body for those 9 months, but after the baby is out, it is time to get skinny again. Sure, you may not be able to get down to that size you were before pregnancy, but you can get darn close to it. Continue as I give you 10 weight loss rules after having kids…

This is because the process of breastfeeding is known for releasing a number of different hormones into the body, which will help the uterus return back down to the pre-pregnancy size and shape.
This includes fruits and vegetables as well as water in your diet.

The same rule can be applied to exercise, just do not overdo it.
Your body has went through a lot of strain. In addition to this, that new arrival means you will need to have all of the energy you can possibly get.

Educate yourself about nutrition and not just weight loss.
Another new mom would make a great partner. However, if you cannot find another new mom, then you can use anyone.

This will include starting out around 1o minutes every day and increasing it gradually.
