Eager to get rid of those pregnancy pounds? Baby dance class is an excellent way to do just that, plus bond with baby at the same time.

Baby Dance Class is great because it’s easy. Other than your baby carrier, no equipment is needed.

You don’t just have to stick to ordinary babywearing anymore.  Dance studios are starting to offer baby wearing dance classes, which are exactly what they sound like; you learn a choreographed routine with other new moms, while all of you are carrying your tykes.  You get all the benefit of a workout session without having to find a babysitter, you get a chance to meet other new parents, and the emotional benefits for you and your baby are well documented.  What’s not to like?

If those reasons are not good enough to convince you, absolutely check out this ultra fun and cool video:

Baby wearing is a great way to bond with your little one while keeping your hands free – but did you know it’s also an excellent boost to your postpartum workout routine?  Carrying around a baby’s worth of weight all day helps you get a little exercise and shed that extra pregnancy weight a little faster.

Classical dance studios are starting to get in on the action too, realizing that all the movement involved in dance is a natural baby calmer.  It stands to reason – they got used to moving around a lot with you in the womb, so they’re very used to being on the go and wrapped up tight.  As long as the dance routine doesn’t involve a lot of dips, it’s great exercise for you and great comfort for your little one!

In addition to dance, there other fitness routines that are perfectly safe to do while babywearing.

If that’s not your thing, there’s also yoga babywearing videos.

There are several babywearing workout videos on YouTube, so you can do it for free. And you can do it from the comfort of your home!

Walkers and runners can also start getting back up to speed for races and other events while babywearing.

Be careful if you want to bring baby into your fitness routine – obviously, you shouldn’t wave weights around in their face! – but don’t be afraid to incorporate your little one into your exercise plans.
