Before I got pregnant I was overweight. Then I gained 50 lbs during my pregnancy!

Now I want to share with you how my new life as a babywearing and breastfeeding mom was all I needed to lose the baby weight and now weigh less than I did before I became pregnant. By month 5 I had already lost the 50 lbs and by month 10 I had lost a total of 70 lbs! I believe our bodies know exactly what to do and there will never be another time in your life more optimal for losing the weight than from the time you go into labor until around your baby’s 1st birthday. You have everything you need to lose the weight. You don’t need a gym membership. You don’t need a personal trainer (you already have one that is attached to you 24 hours a day anyway). You don’t need to pay someone to make you get on a scale every week. You don’t need those diet pills that cost a fortune and are terrible for your health in the long run. All you need is your baby! Oh and some kind of soft carrier.

I created this workout after I found myself moving and bouncing around with Kayla in her Mai Tie trying to put her to sleep a few times a day. I decided that if I was going to be moving around so much anyway I might as well be doing some exercises since there was no way I was going to be getting someone else to watch her while I took myself to the gym. Ha! Yea right…that was never going to happen. And so was created The Babywearing Workout. Not only was I getting a good workout but Kayla was also falling asleep so much easier than she was before! I felt like I found the answer to all of a mother’s questions (well 2 anyway). I wanted to share this with every new mom I knew. So here I am…sharing it with you!

    TBWW is awesome. I’m using it to help me get back in shape postpartum.

  2. Ginna Mott says:

    Love this work out for getting back into the grove after having a baby. It’s just the right amount of exercise to make a difference and to graduate to more activity after a while.

  3. Melissa Godsey says:

    This workout is easily my favorite. I have about 15 pounds to lose to be at my ideal weight, and I am confidant I can do that during the ten week challenge. I feel that it’s simple enough to not be daunting, just intense enough to make me feel that satisfying burn and see results, and it really does put baby to sleep. Really! Even if I decide to do the BWW right after my seven month old wakes up from a lengthy nap, she will fall asleep by the end of the video. I am so happy to have found this workout. Thank you, Kelli!!

  4. Meghann Crider says:

    I love this workout – it’s great to be able to add some fitness to my life, while bonding with my baby. I’d love to see some more videos from you – especially ones with some more challenging moves!

  5. Becky Worthman says:

    TBWW is perfect for me–I can’t do other workout tapes, becuase the baby wants all my attention (as it should be!). With this she is a part of it, and we share quality time as well as teaching her that movement and exercise is important! THANKS!

  6. Davina N. says:

    I was so excited when I found your workout as my little guy likes being carried around so much and finding time to workout has been so hard. Such a good workout and love how it relaxes my little guy.

  7. Shannon B says:

    This is a really fun workout, and I love that I can do it with my son. Besides babywearing walks/hikes, I’ve had such a hard time exercising with him until now. Always the problem of “who will watch the baby?” Not a problem anymore! Yay!

  8. Amanda says:

    Love this workout! Great for getting off the couch!

  9. Heather says:

    I love this workout. It gives me a way to get in shape and keep the little man happy!

  10. Kim Powers says:

    The TBWW has been such a pleasant surprise. It is so authentic, down to earth and enjoyable. It’s the perfect way to start a postpartum workout routine. And my baby is asleep in no time! Love it.

  11. Angela says:

    I only wish I tried the techniques in TBWW sooner! We’ve been doing the workout for a couple weeks now and my 12 month old, who normally resists naps, falls asleep right on queue during the video. Thank you!

  12. Randee says:

    I’ve been trying to find time to get my workouts in and this is perfect! I dont have to wait until my little one is napping.

  13. Kelsey J says:

  15. Shakeeta W says:

    I think this is a great workout! You’re getting the benefits of working out but also get to hold baby close and bond with them :)

  16. Amber says:

    When I started babywearing my first, I did it out of necessity (it was the ONLY way she was calm) but I always felt like it was a bit of a burden. Now, with the right carrier and things like the babywearing workout, I really love carrying my babies and it’s a seamless part of my daily routine.

  17. Sara Nelis says:

    Loving TBWW so far. It was so hard to find time to workout after my 3rd little one was born. Now I can strap my littlest on, my preschooler works out along side me, and I’m losing my baby weight easily! :)

  18. Wendy says:

    I love that I can exercise with my baby and that I can do it in my small lounge without special equipment.

  19. Jessica says:

    You are such an inspiration. I totally agree with you. Are bodies are so amazing and so are our babies. I love that my baby and I worked together as my body grew and now we can work together to shed those pounds.

  20. Jessica Basol says:

    This workout is great! I get to spend the time snuggling my baby and getting a great workout!

  21. Elisebet F-L says:

    I’m on week 2 of The Babywearing Workout, and I’ve already lost 5 pounds! I couldn’t be happier with it.

    Fun and easy to do. I love being able to do things with my baby.

    I absolutely love the workout! It is fun, easy and productive all at the same time. I have more energy and I love being able to have my baby close while getting a great workout!

  25. Rachel Z says:

    Today was my first workout with Kelli and I thought it was fantastic! I am in the process of emailing it to my friends who just had babies! I don’t have to worry about leaving the house and my wee one was asleep within the first 5 minutes! I hope you make more videos Kelli!

  26. Nicolette KP says:

    I’m enjoying TBWW. I joined the challenge as a way to hold myself a little more accountable, and I am so happy that I am doing it! I might not lose my ideal 15 lbs in the 10 weeks (I already weigh less than I did when I got pregnant) because I am still breastfeeding. At least I am going to have fun trying!!!

  27. Lacey P says:

    Love this workout! Puts my little man right to sleep and it’s just what I need to get my body back in shape while bonding with my new man ;)

  28. Jessica Kraft says:

    Love this workout! I especially love that is something that I can do with my LO :)

  29. I love TBWW. Not only do I get to workout in the comfort of my own home, I get to spend time with my son! It’s especially beneficial to me now that he’s so active at 15 months because it’s our special one on one bonding time..while I burn off calories! Pure genius.

  30. Lindsay Powers says:

    I am so excited to have found this. It’s EXACTLY what I need to get that babyweight off! Thank you SO SO SO SO much for sharing your wonderful, healthy idea with other mamas!!!

  31. Sara D says:

    This workout seemed simple at first, but I was feeling it the next day (and baby took his nap!).

  32. Last week while soothing and rocking my twin boys, who together weigh 36 lbs, I started doing squats. And after 10 reps, BURNING! So I share with my yoga teacher that I’m thinking of baby calisthenics.. She says, “have you heard of the Baby Wearing Workout?” Genius! Going back to a hym w 5 month old twins seems impossible. So glad to have found this!!

  33. michelle says:

    thanks kelli! glad to know we’re not alone and this is a realistic activity with benefits for both of us!

  34. Heather says:

    I live in the middle of nowhere. Its too cold outside to go for a walk. There are no gyms with childcare in my area so I have struggled with these last few pounds of baby weight. TBWW is the answer to my problem! Thanks Kelli!

  35. sweet! Sleepy dust AND a fit mama!!

  36. Stacey says:

    Love the workout! Exercise and nap time, kills two birds with one stone!:(

  37. Bridget says:

    Just started and already loving it :) What a great way to get in shape while keeping your baby happy.

  38. Karla says:

    This has been the perfect workout to get me moving again! I am having a lot of trouble shedding the weight after baby #2 and I can’t diet because of breastfeeding, so this is a good way to burn some calories! Thanks!


  39. Lizzie says:

    Thanks for making this! My son and I love being close while exercising :)

  40. Suzi says:

    LOVING TBBW! So nice to exercise and keep my baby calm :)

  41. ari says:

    TBWW was exactly what I needed to get motivated. i love it so much!

  42. Kendra says:

    I waited for a long time to get the OK from my OB to do this workout! I am downloading it now and it is the LONGEST 15 minutes EVER! I’m so thrilled I found this, I really can’t wait to try it. My little guy rarely lets me put him down, I have to wear him all the time. I was excited to find a workout that I could do without having to put him down!

  43. Nicole Rhodes says:

    Love this! It is a quick workout that can be done without ever needing to put your baby down.

  44. Jill says:

    Love this workout! It fits right into my attachment parenting style…and baby sleeps so great when I get done.

  45. Allison says:

    I am staying to love the workout. At first I found it too hard, but I’m getting better at it and I’m starting to see results!
