Baby and Me YouTube Workouts
Below you will find 11 YouTube workouts that you can access for free. Depending on the age of your baby, you can either hold them or use a baby carrier to make it easier.
Some are on the longer side while others are perfect for fitting in between naps or before you go for a walk in the neighbourhood.
For best results, combine these workouts with gentle cardio such as stroller walking or running (if you have a jogging stroller, I highly recommend the BOB Revolution, I’m on year 6 of mine and it is the best stroller ever.).
