You know that whole jiggly tummy thing you have after birth? I know it shrinks down, but I still feel so 'loose' I guess. What do you ladies do to help your tummy firm up?

Oh yeah, it's still jiggly. It takes time, but will firm back up. My running helps it, but it takes a long time (from previous experience)!

What also helps is a little weight training. 5lb weights are plenty. I use cardio kickboxing as well.

It takes time and work, but it can be done. Cardio and crunches =)

Does playing with baby work? I like to lift him up in the air and fly him around.

My belly will be forever jiggly because it is so covered in stretch marks. It gets better though. Running is what really helps me!

I hate the jiggly belly! I'm too afraid to start doing crunches right now and I've never been a big fan of running. Is there anything else to make it go down? I guess once I'm safe to exercise, I'll start with crunches just to do something.

well exercise is good for the muscles and overall tone..but i know a trick for the skin!!
You need to get a big body brush..the kind with the natural bristles (mine is wooden & has beige bristles..got it at walmart) and some good lotion.
Basically every time you shower you need to brush your skin..in circles on your belly & bum and long strokes on your thighs. Brush long and firm enough for your skin to get a bit red. Then when you get out..slather on the lotion. I like the nivea body good-bye cellulite gel..followed by the st. ives collagen elastin.
It takes a couple weeks to see results..but it really does work wonders

Also..a good professional spray tan makes everyone look smoother and more toned!!
