My daughter is 9 months old now and I'm ready to get back in shape. Any suggestions on how to squeeze In a workout between working and caring for baby?

Take baby on nightly walk before bedtime. Wear your child when shopping, walking or anytime you're out.

I bought a stationary bike off craigslist for 70$. I ride while he naps everyday.

While baby is sleeping there are several online workouts available. Just plop down your mat and some equipment on the family room and turn something on. I'm a big fan of barre workouts

Anything is possible ! Use your judgement ! I'm a head teacher in a 2 year old room and have to juggle so much ! Try to workout when they sleep or try a home workout video 😘 do it while she's comfortable and content or sleeping!

In the shower?? Jk, bring your child on walks or join a gum that allows babies. No one would ever watch my kids so I would workout when they slept.

Lay baby on floor and do push ups while talking to baby. Hold baby while doing squats, wall sits, lunges etc. go for a lot if walks!

I loved holding my daughter (in my arms or in a wrap) while doing lunges or walking.

I forgot to mention baby bootcamp or stroller strides. Find online a group that meets near you. This way baby comes, meets other babies and kids and you meet more moms while getting back in shape. The classes are challenging, too. I was pleasantly surprised by how organized the instructors are and push you to work for that hour.
