Tauts Post Pregnancy Wrap
I wanted to talk about my tauts wrap on this blog because I'm curious if any one out there who reads this has used one before!?
I have been a Brooke Burke fan for a few years now. I find her to be pretty inspirational in the diet/fitness sense, and have enjoyed reading her blog to learn how she juggles being a mother of 4, a business woman and a partner. One of her products that she sells and swears by is her Tauts Post-Pregnancy Wrap.
One of the first things I ordered once I found out we were expecting was a Tauts Wrap. I had read about it awhile ago and it had stuck with me as a cool thing to try after having a baby, especially considering how she looks after having 4 children! According to the website:
It is believed that a belly wrap reduces the size of the swollen uterus, reduces water retention in the belly, and helps you lose inches fast, all while supporting that unwanted baggy baby skin! Tauts should be worn as much as you can, 40 days immediately following delivery.
I asked my friend Hilary, who is a labor and deliver nurse, and she agreed that these post-pregnancy wraps are highly recommended by her and her man, who happens to be an OBGYN. I had almost forgotten about my purchase until I found it in the drawer a few days ago, and now the time is fast approaching of when I will be able to put it to use. I also purchased (as part of a package deal) an "exercise wrap" that you wear around your mid section to promote, for lack of a better term, extra belly-sweat.
I promise, I'm not totally vain, but I do have great intentions and desire to get back in shape after this baby :) If I'm not at home with little Ben, you can assume I will be working it at the hot yoga studio (or binging on wine somewhere).
Anyway, if you have any experience with this thing, leave me a comment. And I will be sure to report back my experience with it later this year!
