Yep, you heard right. I am going to talk to you about postpartum belly binding! (If you are not pregnant, not going to be pregnant, or don’t know anyone who is or may be pregnant someday, please feel free to ignore this post and scroll down for some yummy recipes!)
Right now, I am pregnant with my 3rd child. I used postpartum belly binding in the form of a Belly Bandit after both of my last pregnancies and will be happily doing so again after this baby gets here.
After baby #1, I had the Belly Bandit on by the 2nd day I was home (after all the water-weight was gone from my IV-fluids). After baby #2, I had the Belly Bandit on within minutes of getting out of the tub where he was born!
One thing I can tell you for sure… these things feel amazing.
Besides the claims that they bring back your shape faster (which they do, by the way… as long as you use them exactly how they are intended!), they are incredibly supportive and comfortable when your back and ab muscles are so sore and weak after a long pregnancy!
New moms in countries all around the world have been using belly binding postpartum as a cultural norm for centuries… I think they’re pretty smart and I’m glad I found this little treasure before I had my first child!
In case you’re wondering, because I know you are, yes, belly binding will help you tremendously even if this is not your first pregnancy. Any time you have given birth is a great time to support and tone your back and stomach muscles and bring your core back together quicker and easier!
Have you tried, or thought about trying, Postpartum Belly Binding? Do you have any specific questions for me?
I’m very passionate about this topic, and I’d love to chat with you more about it!
