  1. Postpartum Tummies: When Do They Go away


Well, probably, it’s all baby worship and cuddles with your little angel, and that’s how it should be. Nine months of weariness and sleeplessness, not to mention the pain at childbirth_ it’s all worth the joy and celebrations. ‘But what do I do? My tummy won’t return to normal months after, and now it looks like I am still pregnant?’ Mm No! Don’t let the worries of your tummy get in the way when celebrating your gift. To help you, read below to understand more about postpartum bellies, how long they last, and how to get rid of them soon enough.


While it may take a long time for your belly to return to normal after birth, it is not entirely impossible. Having a swollen abdomen after giving birth is always a common cause for concern especially for first-time mothers. This should, however, not worry you so much as the tummy goes away on its own after some time_ entirely for some. In most cases, it takes close to 6 weeks for you to regain your pre-pregnancy body. All that is needed is a lot of patience. Come to think of it, a lot of changes are likely to take place in your body during the nine months, which means healing is going to take time as well.


When a woman is pregnant, many factors are at play. Your muscles, especially around your belly, will stretch to create room for the baby. Hormonal changes as the baby grows also have an effect on your body as well as your diet. Once the baby is delivered, however, the muscles start to contract back to normalness over time. The contractions accompanied by fluid discharge, either vaginal or through urine and sweat, all contribute to your body rebuilding to its initial form. If you feel the patient required is too much, below are some tips on how to lose your postpartum tummy faster.


Breastfeeding. Though not scientifically proven, breastfeeding is one way to say goodbye to your post-pregnancy belly. Most of what you eat is used to process milk for the baby, and as such, mothers who actively breastfeed their babies are bound to notice considerable weight loss and a decline in their tummies. This, however, is not the case with all breastfeeding mothers.


Exercising. Once you are healed and strong, you may want to try some mild exercises such as sit-ups, jogging, short walks, or any other exercise recommended by your specialist. It all helps tone the muscles to their initial form and burn calories. For better results, you will need to incorporate different exercise activities.


Eating a healthy diet. Most moms assume they need to eat a lot to be able to breastfeed. If you are not careful, this is the stage where you lose track of your weight gain completely. A healthy diet can aid you in losing your body weight and, consequently, your postpartum belly.


Belly binding. Belly wraps and belts help support your abdomen and help your tummy shrink back easily.


Motherhood comes with its ups and downs, a lot of changes notwithstanding. The least you can do to have an enjoyable transition is to embrace the changes as they come.
