Three months after giving birth to my 4th and last baby, it's time to reflect on where we are. I wore the belly bandit from the day after I gave birth until about 6 weeks post partum. It's my absolute favorite item for post partum recovery. It doesn't make the belly smaller per say but it helps keep things together, somewhat flat and keeps the jiggle to a minimum. It will still take time for things to get back to normal but right away you will look pretty good in your clothes :). I highly recommend it.
Here we are, 3 months post partum after 4 beautiful babies
As far as the weight goes, It's been a pretty good ride too. I gained about 30lbs this pregnancy and I lost it all already. I am back to my pre pregnancy weight at around 146lbs but I am still about 10lbs away from my ideal weight. I like to be between 135 and 140lbs. I am still breastfeeding and plan to do that for a whole year so I can see the weight lingering until we are completely done.
Post partum recovery the fourth time around has been pretty good overall. It's been exactly what I expected (you can see my post partum updates less than a month after delivering baby #2, baby #3, and baby #4) and I am excited to get my body back and start focusing on getting back to my normal self. 6 years and 4 babies, you did amazing body, high five.
