Let's get right into it and all explain the 10 tips that can help you get rid of postpartum belly.
1.Check for Diastasis Recit
Number one is to check for Diastasis Recti. A lot of doctors do not explain it to you, in fact the majority of doctors do not explain it to new mommies or pregnant mommies and all that is simply an ab separation down your Linea Alba which is just the middle of your abs and going all the way down.During pregnacy, the rectus abdominis muscles in your abdomen separate and leaving a gap that allows your belly to bulge out.Make sure that you do check for it because that will hinder your progress in getting your belly down.
2.Ditch The Sit-Ups
Number two is ditch the sit-ups .The first we think of is i got to do more sit-ups,i gotta get that belly down.But really you're wrecking yourself .Get rid of the sit-ups, no planking, no downward dog,anything that puts pressure on your stomach is a no-no.Now as you progress and you close that gap up in your tummy and you get stronger in your core,you'll be able to do planking, but you'd be doing planking the right way.So I highly suggest get rid of anything like that, that will put added pressure.
3.Eat Nutrient Loaded Food
Number three is have nutrient loaded meals and snacks. You're just coming from delivery or maybe it's been a while since you've been postpartum, but your body needs to heal.You are not gonna heal from eating toast crusts from your toddler or hamburgers or you know junky food, you need those neat nutrients to heal.It's not rocket science and you need a little bit of help and that's okay.You could have smoothies, you can add veggies ,you can pre do them and put them in a Tupperware. There's a lot of ways you can do them. For example, every morning you can have a nutritious shake.Make sure your day is balanced. Nobody says you have to be perfect but you really do want to get those nutrients in, your body is going to respond way faster,you're going to feel better ,you're gonna have more energy and that will carry through and less cravings,and we all know what that does to us .So make sure you have that nutrient loaded meals,don't worry about the calories so much,but make sure you're eating nutritious food.

You will love this for support.This one in particular I know there's different styles and that kind of thing, but this particular one, the Upsie Belly came with a little cold pack ,and you can also heat it. It was nice to put either on your back. What's really cool about this is that it can keep you snug ,and when you use these it helps compress your stomach and help support it and you feel all round better.It makes you feel like you want to have better posture.

Just taking care of the belly and it makes you kind of feel good,because you're doing something for yourself .
6.Take Care of Your Digestion
Our bodies go through crazy time right during pregnancy and our organs get shifted and everything gets shifted, a lot of people have problems with their digestion after they have a baby and so certain foods they'll be sensitive to or they are sensitive without knowing it ,and it's just heightened. So if you want to be sure to get rid of that belly or bring it down, it's important to concentrate on that digestion.So just be mindful of what you're eating. If you're starting to not feel good after you have certain amount of foods or certain kinds of foods, start eliminating them ,the culprits are usually gluten dairy .Be mindful of what it is and just try and eliminate them and you might find that your tummy's going down a lot faster than you thought. Take care of your insides.You could be sure to take probiotics and the shakes.You can take that has live digestive enzymes,that will help break down your food,that'll help you also absorb protein and it's really super healthy for you .
7.Drink A Lot Of Water
You got to have lots of water flush out those toxins, get that fat moving and hydrate yourself. That's gonna make your skin look better too, if you're one of those mummies that do not like water, you can easily just put some slices of fruit in there, you can do lemon and basil and all this stuff to make it taste better.So how much do you take? you take half of your weight in ounces.
8.Get Rid Of Tight Pants
Now this might surprise you a little bit and it's scrapping the tight pants, and you might think yeah oh I can't even get my pants on. Have you ever seen where some people or maybe this happens to you, you get on like tight jeans, you're wearing them and over time like you're fat kind of molds on top of your jeans .Well you're actually training your fat to basically live there and there's a whole science behind, it has to do with fascia and all this but you guys might be scratching your head.So I'm just gonna give you the basics, don't wear tight underwear, don't wear tight jeans and tight pants, make sure they're just loose enough. So that when you're sitting down, it's not creating that extra tightness because your bellies gonna mold to that is gonna stay there we don't want that.
9.Don’t Bash Yourself
It is so easy to get up in the morning, you have your shower ,you look in the mirror and you're so disappointed how you look .It's gross like your belly at least when you're pregnant and it was nice and tight. Now it's like jiggly and all these things .Don't bash yourself, because if you focus on that ,you're gonna get more of that, so you focus on oh I hate my stomach, I hate how it looks,it looks gross, I look gross, I feel gross,then you're just gonna get more of that.So be gentle, look at yourself to some other body part that you do like and focus on that, while you're you know dealing with these things. But what you focus on you find and what you focus on seems real and it's just gonna get worse and worse. So don't bash yourself, go easy too.Nobody expects you , it took ten months pretty much to gain that weight and it's gonna take some time to get it off .
10.Get your ZZZ
Number 10 is sleep. This is super important for weight loss or reducing that mummy tummy or postpartum belly .Because you have kids even toddlers ,they get up
the middle of the night, but if you can fall asleep or set your alarm to go asleep at 10:30 and then of course if you have to wake up with the baby and your little ones, if you can try and get your butt to bed by 10:30, that'll set you up for success the next day, so you're not tired.Because when you're tired you eat more crappy food.You're too tired to prep any meals,you don't want to drink your water and all kinds of things right,it just gets to be a mess. So 10:30 there's things that can help you fall asleep, maybe you do a little bit of lavender essential oils on your feet, you can use also a sleep spray .The goal is to keep your body as stressless as possible .
