Below is a video of me (and the rest of the family) discussing the importance of holding our kids to not hurt our diastasis.

If you know of a mom that is a new mom or has a mummy tummy please share this with her.

Thanks for the suggestions! After watching this, I realize I frequently stand improperly with my little guy. Hopefully this small (though many times a day!) change will help with healing my DR.

I do the same Kariane, it definitely is a daily practice for me.

You look amazing! This website has been extremely encouraging for me. Thank you for sharing your story. What is your suggestion on how to properly bathe your little one with out hurting your DR?

Thank you so much Kelly. 🙂 Now for bath time with your little ones. My daughter goes into the bath tub by herself and I sit next to the tub. When I bend over to wash her I make sure to engage my core when I am doing it. So I am thinking belly button to spine, hold it and continue to breathe normally. Then when I pick her up to get out of tub, I squat down, grab her and again engage my core when doing this. I hope this helps! xoxo
