A skinny mom friend recommended Bellybandit to me after using it https://bellybandit.com/

I just got some Bao Bei postpartum leggings. They seriously suck in the fupa. But to the extent that they’re a pain to get on and off when peeing because they’re so tight. But once they’re on, they’re comfy. I’m right there with you. 2021 I’m going to lose this baby weight and get some strength back!

Hey moms, How do contractions really feel? FTM and I’m starting to feel a little pain in the lower part of my belly.

Been 2 weeks and I am tired of pumping.
