How long does it take for your stomach muscles to recover from having a kid?
It's been four months. I want my stomach back!
Whenever you feel ready you can go back to exercising. I had 2 c-sections and waited until after I checked with the doctor (about 6 weeks after birth) to make sure it was ok. As long as you don't feel pain you should be fine.
As it is often said, it takes nine months to stretch those muscles out and it could take just as long to get them back in shape. My baby is eight months old and my muscles aren't quite back just yet despite diet and exercise (2 c-sections though, which does make a difference!).
There are many articles out there about strengthening and toning your stomach muscles after having kids. I'm sure if you did a little research you'd come across some info fairly quickly. I know magazine sites like Parenting or Parents offer info pertaining to health and wellness on a regular basis.
