jolly jumper tummy trainer

JollyJumperTummyTrainerOn one of our many pre-baby shopping trips, I had purchased a tummy trainer by Jolly Jumper. I had read that belly binding would aid in the natural healing process postpartum. My interest was therefore solely from a health perspective. This tummy trainer in particular said that it would:

– Instantly shape and slim your waist and tummy

– Help strengthen your stomach muscles to return to pre-pregnancy state quickly

– May be worn discreetly under clothing

Jolly-Jumper-Tummy-TrainerIt was quite inexpensive, so I thought that if it did any of the things that it promised to then it would be well worth the $30 investment.

I began wearing the tummy trainer a few days after coming home from the hospital. I wore it religiously during the day for nearly 4 weeks. These are my thoughts on the trainer:

Pros

– It helped with my overall posture, especially when breastfeeding

– It was very easy to put on and wear comfortably throughout the day

– It made me feel more secure and held together

Cons

– It was not discreet under clothing and thus couldn’t be worn in public

– It didn’t conform to my body nicely

– It was very loud when taking it off 

– I don’t actually think that it makes you skinnier (which is what it says on the package, although was not a concern of mine)

Overall, I really like the idea of belly binding after having a baby. I just think that Jolly Jumper is not the best product to accomplish that. I loved the feeling of wearing the tummy trainer, however given that it fit improperly, I would seek out a different product in the event of my next baby. ;-)

Pregnancy Pillow - 3I had read somewhere that around week 16 of your pregnancy, you should avoid sleeping on your stomach. I cannot fall asleep unless I am curled up in said position. Sometimes I will sleep on my side, and only rarely on my back. However, it is on my stomach that I get achieve my most comfortable and deepest of sleeps. Not anymore.

Now that I am well into my second trimester, I am experiencing pinched sciatic nerve pain, leg numbness, and sore hips. Compared to being ill ten times a day, it’s like a walk in the park. What I do find painful is when I try to roll over from my stomach and onto my side whilst lying in bed. It feels like someone is tearing my stomach muscles in half. It therefore takes me around two very slow minutes to roll over. 

Pregnancy Pillow - 2I discovered through online research that pregnancy pillows not only help women stay off of their stomachs at night, but also alleviate many lower back and leg problems. There are many additional benefits as well, but these were the main ones that I was concerned with. After visiting the stores this last weekend, I purchased my first beautiful, grey Snoogle body pillow by Leachco. Now my biggest issue is never wanting to leave the bed. I’m also finding more excuses to take naps. Move over husband, the baby and I are in love.

This was not a paid-for advertisement. All words and views were simply my own. :-)
