Postnatal Care Guide on How to Bring Back the Pretty You

I understand that when you look at yourself in the mirror, plenty of questions come into your mind. I know, I’ve been there! I bet you’ve been worrying about losing your weight and getting back into shape.

There are many ways to slim down, shine and be more beautiful after giving birth. However, are you in for the fight? Will you conquer it, or not?

1. You don’t need to do all the work alone

You must probably be a little weak after having the baby. If you had your baby by normal delivery, it’s typical to feel tired and weak. On the other hand, if you had a caesarian method, it’s less likely that you can walk around much. Avoid being stressed and rest.

Your job, for now, is to relax. Take it one at a time. Be sure to have a trusted someone to take care of you. Bear in mind that you enjoy these moments. You're in a phase wherein the focus is for your newborn, so let someone else do things for you.

2.Ensure to do proper Feminine Hygiene

It is essential to learn how to take care of yourself by doing the right feminine hygiene. Keeping yourself clean does not only keep you healthy and fresh but also makes a healthy and clean baby.

  • check
    Always wear clean clothes. Do not use strong fabric cleaners and softeners that may be harmful to your baby.
  • check
    Take a bath or wash regularly. I recommend you use mild and gentle feminine wash for a fresh and fragrant you.
  • check
    Keep your nails short and clean. Tie your hair and keep it tidy always.

3.It’s time to get moving

After the long rest, a recovering body needs a boost by starting to get moving. It’s time for exercise! I recommend that you seek advice from your doctor for a workout routine.

A suitable fitness activity does not only shed your unwanted fats but will also make you feel energized and active inside out. Start lifting weights and tone up your muscles as soon as you're able.

4.Get all the sleep that you need

I know that it’s hard to obtain the right amount of sleep when you have a baby. So make that most of those rare free time and sneak in for a nap. Lack of sleep not only leaves your mood cranky but it also makes you look worn-down, and mess up.

Hoping to bring back the pretty you? Listen to this postnatal care tip. Don’t skip your beauty sleep!

5.Breastfeeding is the best

Breastfeeding is the best

Do you know that when you’re breastfeeding burns an average of 700 calories per day? Yes, you do, even if you just sit and lie down with your baby. If you’re lucky enough, you can get rid of the excess weight only by breastfeeding alone.

Aside from that, mother’s milk is a natural source of nutrients for your baby compared to new baby formulas on the market. Besides, frequent breastfeeding helps induce milk production.

6.You are what you eat

Working on getting your body fit and healthy needs the adequately balanced diet. Remember, it is not advised to go on a diet right after giving birth. Our body does not stop on healing itself.

When you’re already active and feeling strong, then try a mild diet program for a start. Watch out for what you drink and eat to bring back the pretty glow in you too.

  • check
    Avoid junk foods and other empty-calorie foods and sodas. 
  • check
    Indulge in nutritious food like lean meat, milk, high-fiber, cereals, fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables.
  • check
    Drinking a lot of water has its beauty magic too! When you crave for snacks, keep healthy nibbles at reach.
  • check
    Break down your food servings into small portions. Don’t eat too many at once. Eating frequently with limited quantity will help regulate your blood sugar. The thorough distribution of the calories during the day, are quickly burned by the body.

7.Be good to Yourself
