WHEN TO START POSTPARTUM WAIST TRAINING
Postpartum waist training has become a thing for new moms and I believe this trend will always be. With this studious trend, there is a need to talk about in detail all we need to know about waist training and the effect it may have on your postpartum body. A vital part of waist training after giving birth is to ensure you get a go-ahead from your doctor. Once you have that in check, you can proceed with the following tips.
For new moms that went through the normal delivery process, they can start using their waist trainers a couple of days after delivery. The body undergoes substantial changes after delivery and it takes about six weeks for your uterus to return to normal, therefore wearing a waist trainer has several benefits during this period. For women who may have undergone CS, they would have to wait until after six weeks and when their doctor has confirmed them fit to start using waist trainers.
Right after childbirth, our bodies maybe a little bit different, but here is what you can expect while using your waist trainer during the postpartum period. The ideal waist trainer to use at this point as recommended by Getfit Technologies is the waist trimmer, also known as the Getfit postpartum tummy belt (this belt can help get your midsection back together again). The waist trimmer can be worn with ease as against other types that require time and energy to put on. The postpartum also provides a firm compression for your belly and support for your back. The waist trimmer is designed to focus on the middle part of the belly to reduce the swelling while also promoting tissue healing.

The recommended time of use is five hours as long as you are comfortable in it and can take it off when there is a need to relax. During this period, it is encouraged that new moms get enough resting time, stay hydrated and eat nutritious food while bonding with their newborn.
When it is a little over six weeks postpartum, you can start wearing other waist trainers with a firmer compression like the Improved Slimwaist band and improved Ruby 3.0, these ones are longer in length with an extra band for extra compression. At this stage, physical activities such as a gentle exercise routine can be incorporated into the waist training process.
By the time you are four to five months postpartum, your belly would almost start to return to normal. At this point, you can start to waist training fully, you are expected to wear your waist trainer for 7-8 hours daily. You can rotate wearing the waist trimmer and the other waist trainers when you are working at home and for workouts. For new mothers, waist training works best in combination with adequate exercise (including other physical activities such as cooking, cleaning and running errands) and a healthy diet.
