A nice belly after baby (7 pics)

At work !

A round belly with distended skin is quite normal after childbirth. But for how long ? If for some women, it is easier to regain their figure before pregnancy, for others, it will take more patience and rigor. We do not panic! Surely it will go but slowly and slowly ... But there is nothing wrong with accelerating "a little" things. A flat stomach, toned and firm, we all dream after a childbirth.

How to find a flat stomach and a firm body after the arrival of baby? We think of some tips that we do not expect. Care on the skin, a good sleep, no draconian diets ... And when it comes to the sport, we start smoothly. A bit of walking, some yoga postures, gentle gymnastics, a little swimming would be ideal. Here are our tips!

No draconian diets!

A nice belly after baby, it is sure that it is paid. But after giving birth, dieting is probably not a good idea. A good diet, healthy and balanced, contributes to a correct intake of elastin and collagen fibers to firm the skin and restore its tone. There is no question of depriving the body of nutrients and vitamins.

Vitamins A (especially retinol), B, C and E play essential roles in protecting the skin and maintaining the elasticity and tone of the skin. These vitamins are involved in the manufacture of collagen fibers.

On your plate, do not hesitate with eggs, milk, poultry, walnuts and almonds, oily fish, sunflower oil ...

Otherwise, we will have to pay attention with the salt, which tends to retain the water; the salt will weaken and release the connective tissues!

A lot of sleep

With baby crying, diaper changes, breastfeeding, baby bottles ... it is often difficult to juggle. The best solution: sleep while baby sleeps too!
You probably think that it has nothing to do with the silhouette, the belly. But so! Sleep is important to respect a healthy lifestyle; it is true that we nibble less when we are less tired, right? Small naps are needed then!

Skin care

Many products are currently available to help tone and firm the skin. These are usually products in the form of moisturizing cream, rich in vitamins, which will be applied to the skin. Anti-cellulite creams, it's even better!

You can take advice from your dermatologist in choosing your product. Products based on shea oil and rose hip oil are generally known and contain anti-elastases.

Applying a cream also requires some precautions to help the skin restore its tone and firmness. At the level of the members, one applies the cream from bottom to top. On certain parts like the belly or the hips, one makes circular movements as if one massaged slightly the part.

Remember to warm the product in your hands before applying.

Perineal rehabilitation first and foremost

Perineal rehabilitation is important for all women who have just given birth. It is usually prescribed during a postpartum visit by the gynecologist or the midwife. No effort should be made until you have done the perineal rehabilitation.

The perineal reeducation sessions are carried out during the six weeks after delivery, according to the mode of delivery or the state of health of the baby and the mother.

Green light for gentle exercises

Six weeks have passed! You have made the point with your gynecologist or your midwife, you have done your perineal reeducation sessions, you can resume the physical exercises smoothly starting with some yoga postures, walking or swimming.

Yoga allows you to regain flexibility and reshape your body gradually and deeply.

Posture 1: Posture of the tiger

Tiger posture is especially recommended for women after childbirth. This posture improves the elasticity of the joints of the spine, strengthens the abdominal belt, tones the muscles of the thighs and buttocks.

Step 1: Sit down, buttocks on your heels.

Step 2: While inhaling, sit up on your knees, hands outstretched forward.

Step 3: When exhaling, gently put your hands flat on the floor, arms outstretched. You find yourself on all fours.

Step 4: Bring your left knee and your head under your body at the same time, bringing your forehead and knee closer together.

Step 5: While inhaling, pull your leg back and up (always knees bent); at the same time, straighten your head looking up.

Step 6: As you exhale, bring your knee and your head back under your body.

Make these flexion extension movements respecting your own breathing pattern.

Change side.

Posture 2: The cat's posture

The cat's posture will soften the back and easily relax the internal organs of the abdomen or belly. This posture gently strengthens the abdominal and back muscles.

Put on all fours: knees slightly apart from the width of the pelvis and hands well laid flat and spread on the ground, spread shoulder width.

Bring your shoulders back (turn your elbows back to the hips to make sure your shoulders are well back); and keep your back straight.

When you are ready, begin to inhale by swelling the belly and bringing it back to the ground, straighten your head slightly and bend your elbows a little.

Then exhale while returning the navel towards the spine and rounding the back. Release your head and watch your belly button under your body.

Come back down on an inhale bringing the belly and sternum back to the ground.

Make these movements respecting your breathing rhythm. Stop on 5 breaths.

Endurance after 4 months

Small exercises requiring more endurance can be integrated little by little, a few months after delivery. Even though these exercises are so simple and easy to perform, you will always need the advice of your doctor. These few exercises will help to soften the lower back and strengthen and firm the abdominal belt and the perineum.

Exercise 1

In a lying position on the back. Bend your knees and bring them to the chest. Put your hands on your knees and make circular movements with your knees bent. Make 5 circular movements in each direction.

Exercise 2

Always lying on your back flat on the floor, knees bent; arms extended along the body. Bring your knees to the chest and contract the abs.
Then, always with the leg bent, lower the right leg down, then the left leg, and so on (but do not touch the ground with the foot, act as if you are kicking a ball behind you). Do 10 up and down movements for each leg.


Exercise 3

While lying on the back, knees bent and brought to the chest. Extend your arms along your body, next to your hips.
Gently lift your bust (as high as you can) while contracting the abs, arms still lying, knees bent. Stay in this position for a few seconds and then return to the ground. Repeat this posture 3 or 5 times according to your convenience and according to your performance but without forcing too much.
