iVillage: Ready to Lose the Baby Weight? Here's How to Get Started

Um...I Didn't Exercise Before the Baby. What's the Best Way to Start Now?

Don't worry, mama: It's never too late to get active. But if you weren't exactly a gym rat before baby, it's best to start slow.

In the early days, simply moving around while you take care of your baby is enough to stimulate your muscles. Later, add in short walks. You can do it with or without your baby, and it requires no special equipment.
