Love it? We sure do! So often, we hear of celebrity moms upping their workout regime or embracing some new diet after giving birth, but it's not always feasible for regular moms who don't have a gazillion dollars to pay nannies to watch the kiddos while they hit the gym or nutritionists to help them craft a new diet plan. This, on the other hand? This is one great weight loss trick any mom can do -- and it's good for baby to boot!
