Exercises You Can Do While Holding A Clingy Baby

Sometimes you’ve just got to get a workout in, but your baby or toddler doesn’t want to leave you alone. Fortunately, a lot of exercises still work with a baby in a carrier. Just think of your bundle of joy as a squirming weighted vest.

Cosmopolitan highlights six exercises that work with any age baby, so long as you’re comfortable with the extra weight and are sure you’ve tucked the baby in securely.
