I've always been a big advocate of wearing baby. I have tons of different carriers for all purposes. I lost all my baby weight with #3 because I wore him almost daily.
For some reason I just haven't wore baby #4 as much since she's been born. Partly because we had such a long winter and staid home and partly because I have an 11 yr old that loves to carry her around.
But at 9mos she's getting heavy and we've been out and about a lot more with the nice weather. So I've been wearing her a lot more and I can tell I'm out of shape! It's been great though to carry her and get a mini workout. An extra 16lbs on your back really makes a difference in a 30 min hike ;) I've been using the elliptical weekly but adding the weight on you makes a big difference.
So I've tried to make a conscious effort to wear her at some point every day, not only to get in shape, but to get her used to it for the long walks we'll be taking this summer at arts festivals, museums, etc that we have planned.
Just wanted to share.....
PS Only 5 lbs to my goal weight! Shouldn't take long with baby on my back.
