Now, before you start commenting that this is a health blog- not a gossip blog, hear me out first,

this is going to be about health, we are just using the fabulous Kate to prove a point.

First off, hats off to you Kate! Having a baby, especially as a first time mom,

is hard, even if you have a lot of help. It would seem to me that it would be even harder if you are in the public eye. So on that note, let’s get down to business!

The rumor is that she is using a combination of breastfeeding and Yoga to get her pre- baby body back. Breastfeeding is always best for not just baby, but mom too, and it does have a lovely side affect of using a lot of calories, a whopping extra 500 or so a day is needed in order to feed baby, so go on ahead and have that piece of chocolate cake if you like, you have earned it.

Yoga, is also well-liked and proven as a tool to not only get back in shape but to help post partum moms cope with the stresses that come along with that precious little bundle of joy.

All under the supervision and with the permission of your doctor of course.

Right after having a baby is not the time to be counting calories or trying to lose weight. Your body has performed quite an amazing feat for the last 10 months and deserves a little time to rest and right itself.

IF you are breastfeeding- Good for you! Your are giving your baby the best start possible and this time will be some of the most precious memories you will ever have.

Use exercise as a way to Feel Better- not to get thinner. That will come with time.

Right now should be about you and baby.

So, for those of you who want to know more about Princess Kate you can read this amazing article from the Today show.

Infant sleep training methods, “controlled comforting” and “camping out,” improve infant sleep and reduce maternal depression, Australian researchers say.

The study, “Five-Year Follow-up of Harms and Benefits of Behavioral Infant Sleep Intervention: Randomized Trial,” tracked 225 children from infancy through age 6 to determine if a behavioral sleep program had long-lasting effects on children’s mental health, stress levels, the child-parent relationship, or maternal mental health.
