Sleep
TRISHA, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD

How can i get my newborn to sleep for more than an hour at night?

Hi Trisha! I am no sleep expert but can tell you from personal experience that newborn sleep (or lack there of) can be really hard and take its toll on you mentally and physically. Resting when you can and getting fresh air every day can help until the 2-4 month mark when their sleep patterns change. Best of luck!

Workout suggestions
VERONIKA, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD

As a new mom, I don't have much time. I tried Tabata, but didn't really enjoy it. I've heard HIIT is also very effective. Do you have any recommendations?

Hi there! High-intensity workouts are great if you’re short on time and want a good sweat. That said, they aren’t for everyone so give it a try and see how you feel. If you’re looking for a more low impact workout, doing a circuit of squats, lunges, push-ups and planks will give you a full body work out you can do in 15 minutes or less. For an extra boost of cardio, jumping jacks and jogging in place with high knees are great to add in to get your heart rate up. Let me know if you have any questions!

Resistance training
JAYANTI, PARENT OF 2 YEAR OLD

I enjoy lifting weights. Is it ok for me to resistance train after baby?

Absolutely! In fact, strength training is a great way to rehabilitate muscles that weakened or were moved around during pregnancy and childbirth. Just make sure to check with your doctor first and ease back into it to avoid injury.
