Let’s face it! Getting back to your pre-baby body after giving birth isn’t easy.
We’ve all seen our favorite celebrity moms bounce back quickly after childbirth, and you can too!
Fashion: Just because you have to tote around a diaper bag, doesn’t mean that your diaper bag has to look dumpy. Nowadays, more retailers are tapping fashion’s biggest designers to make well-designed bags that will look great and more importantly, make you feel great!
Chasing trends and coveting clothes can be fun, but the secret to effortless style is to forget the trends and build a wardrobe with the basics.

Accessorize: When it comes to accessorizing your hair, you want “hair that looks like you care!” Don’t make the “mom mistake” of a butterfly clip. It’s dated and a sign that you never outgrew those sorority house parties. Instead, opt for a simple, thin black headband.
Beauty: The 5-minute mom face is the perfect way to fake a good nights sleep with easy makeup. Go from “hot mess” to “hot mom” in 5-minutes flat.
All you need is:
Liquid Foundation: this will prime your canvas
Bronzer: this will “fake” a natural flush
Shimmer Eye Shadow: Don’t use pastels, as they will age you!
Mascara: To accent your eyes
Gloss of tinted balm
Diet: Every parenting expert stresses the importance of eating together as a family, but most moms ends up rushing to feed their children by 5:30 PM, and pick on their kid’s leftovers while they prepare dinner for themselves. These extra calories will add up so stop picking at your kid’s dinner!
