You can't really target specific areas but try and tone everything is best.

I always have to laugh when men chime in on a topic such as they know about a what a baby does to a woman's body. LOL

It has been a very long time since I had a baby. I'm a grandmother, but pilates and stretching exercises are not difficult to do, and they feel good. Check out pilates and if you can afford to get a CD or VHS so you could do the exercises at home; those could help. You always need to be patient and consistent with any exercise program. I suggest trying to accept yourself as you are right now too with a goal to change things you do not like. There is much more to you than what your body looks like, and you have to understand that you just had a baby and things change. Be kind to yourself and try some pilates. It doesn't take equipment and it helps you to feel good.

Hello Bria201,

Of course you know there is no magic pill and now with a second child you also have a baby sitting challenge to contend with while trying to regain your former shape. First, set you mind to making healthy food choices. Second, exercise everyday - specifically walking is very good to tighten and tone your buttocks. Third, drink lots of water so that your body can flush away lactic acid and fat that are bi-products of exercise. Fourth, do some core strengthening exercises. Whether at the gym, with a home video, or a tv show - there is no substitute for a strong core to make the rest of your body stand up and listen! Fifth - perservere. It took at least nine months to get the results you are now unhappy with so give your body at least as long to respond to your new changes.

Good Luck Girl!! Most of us have been there and can sympathize with your plight, but know that you CAN get your body back with dedication and determination.

I have recently just had my second child, and to say the least I am very upset with my body image, I would like to know is there any exercises that anyone could recommend to tighten up my stomach, and lift my breast, and butt.
