“It’s fun to sit my baby in his chair and do sit-ups while playing peek-a-boo.” — Ddrydale

“My husband and I take my son for walks, and on weekends my husband watches him for an hour so I can go to the gym.” — mgonzalez

“I lift him with my feet to tone my legs. I used to lift him with my arms, but then he got too big!” — Emwise

“I’ve been doing Zumba Fitness on Wii during naptime. It’s a great work out and has definitely helped me tone up. I have more energy to keep up with my 10-month-old.” — Jforbes

“I have three kids and one on the way. Going up and down the stairs with a toddler, a laundry basket and a preggo belly really tones your legs. I highly recommend it!” — mmkapfer

“I put my son in a bouncy swing and he watches me work out to Turbojam. He smiles and laughs because I make it look fun.” –- Lcreighton

“I go to the gym during my lunch break.” — Mcford

“I just found a yoga app for the iPad, so I do that at night while my hubby plays a computer game.” — Mskinner

“I put one down to nap and the other will ‘workout’ with me.” — aqshort

“I use a YouTube video called Z-Wow. The trainer has tons of different exercise videos and it takes about 20 minutes! Perfect for baby’s naps.” — bwgehrs

“I do push-ups and kiss my son every time I go down. I also do sit-ups next to him while he plays on the floor, and lunges using him as a weight. My little man loves working out with me!” — llbillheimer

“I just try to make it part of playtime with him so I’m more likely to do it!” — jlarkin
