Post Baby Weight Loss & Belly Reduction Tips
Every new mom is eager to look like her old self again post pregnancy; but one of the most important things to remember is to be patient with yourself. “It took nine months to get there. It should take at least that long to get back there.”
With that in mind, here are some tips to help you lose weight after pregnancy
- Dont diet
If you eat less you will not only be shortchanging yourself, you’ll be shortchanging your baby. You can’t produce quality milk if you are not eating enough. Do not dip below 1800 calories a day, particularly if your breastfeeding.
- Consume “super foods”
When you’re a new mother, your body needs maximum nutrition, especially if you’re nursing. Choose foods that are heavy in the nutrients you need and light in calories and fat.
- Fish is one of these “super foods” because it’s packed with DHA, an essential omega-3 fatty acid that helps your newborn develop a healthy brain and nervous system.
- Milk and yogurt are also super foods because they’re high in the calcium you need to keep your bones strong.
- In protein, lean meat, chicken, and beans are low in fat and high in protein and fiber. They’re good for you, and they’ll keep you feeling full for longer.
Some studies find that breastfeeding exclusively can help you return to your pre-baby weight faster
- Drink Up
Drinking plenty of water throughout the day prevents you from getting dehydrated. It also fills you up so that you don’t eat as much
- Move it
Incorporate aerobic and strength training exercises after pregnancy to burn calories and keep your muscles and bones strong

Cucciku recommends the use of the following products:-
+ Firming Herbal Blend Paste: –
A traditional paste made of a blend of tropical herbs to strengthen and firm stomach muscles from the inside-out. It promotes release of water retention. . To be used with the abdominal wrap for best results.
+ Abdominal Wrap: –
Provides full support from below the breast down to the hip and buttocks to aid in the release of water retention.
What is the difference between our Abdominal Wrap and the commercially available corsets or girdles?
Our Abdominal Wrap is made of 100% unbleached cotton which means the risk of allergy is greatly minimized, if not negligible. It is also cooler and more comfortable for our humid tropical climate. In addition, our cotton material is ‘stiff’ which makes it more effective to ‘mould’ your postnatal body into its pre-pregnancy shape. The length also covers till below the hips/upper thighs which means the support and slimming effect is better. In contrast, the commercial corsets/girdles have a high level of elastane, which is a synthetic material. This makes it less comfortable and ‘hotter’ for the wearer as the material does not allow the skin to breathe. Some wearers are also allergic to the synthetic material. Because it is more ‘elastic’, this means that the ‘moulding’ and slimming effect is less effective. The other point is that commercial corsets/girdles are usually only 10 – 12 inches in height, which means it only covers the abdominal , and not the hip area. Furthermore, corsets/girdles tend to bunch up and does not maintain its shape, even after a couple of hours of wear.
*For best results Abdominal Wrap should be used within 3 months of delivery. We recommend wearing the wrap minimum 12 hours, everyday for 40 days, for optimum results. It’s best if you can wear it day and night, taking it off only when you have your shower. The more you wear it, the faster you will regain your pre-pregnancy figure.
+ Herbal Tea: –
Promotes blood circulation and release of water retention. With improved blood circulation, toxins and excessive water are better expelled.We recommend you to start drinking the tea twice a day, starting from the 4th or 5th day of childbirth.
