This is because during the first few months; the baby will be breastfed a lot of times in a day if there is no nanny around changing the diapers becomes the responsibility of the parents. Is it the scary laundry schedule or the baby's unlimited cries that will always keep sleep away from you most especially at night.

Slowly Get Back

Women who engage themselves in exercises know that you can't just walk your way back to fitness. You have to slowly do that. In this case, your doctor's advice becomes the ultimate guideline to your path to fitness. This guideline can depend on some factors, one of which will be the mode of delivery. This can be either vaginal delivery or C-section. 
Another factor is your general state of health. After childbirth, your doctor will examine you to know your health status and give you guidelines on what next to do- that is when to start and how to start, maybe he is likely to advise you against starting at all at least for some time.
