This post probably contains affiliate links, to items I am in love with, and I am confident you will too! For any health advice I give on nutrition and wieghtloss, make sure you check with your doctor, as I am not a health professional. I am just a mama with lots of health and fitness knowledge and experience.
As a mom of three, I’ve found that tips, tricks and hacks are so helpful. I love the “aha. why didn’t I think of that?” moments when I see someone doing something I should’ve been doing all along. There are lots of hacks new mamas need to know, and I’ve put together a list of the super smart, super useful ones all in one place. I wish I was able to think of these myself, but I was just a normal tired mom, incapable of thinking about much other than when the baby was going to sleep. These people are rock stars in the parenting world because they’ve used what brainpower they have left to make life easier for the rest of us!

I can not find the source for this photo, but I can tell you that I have a crib just waiting for me to do this!
Definitely doing this one like tomorrow. Everything is under the seats right now, and I don’t want to look.
This one is genius for giving medicine! I would give a little, then nurse the baby to get the medicine down, but this looks even easier!
Is a mop onesie the funniest thing you’ve ever seen??
LOVE this idea!
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
