really??? you think wearing a tight type belt around your stomach is going to do that?? really?? I would just say take the money you were going to spend on it and invest in a good pair of running shoes and hit the ground walking or running ... or just flush it down the toilet :) drink lots of water, eat right and exercise... that WILL work... don't waste your money on it!

you can exercise if you have a good delivery and you've exercised all along... no harm in it :) I am so itching to get back to the pavement with my dog and start logging miles again... baby come out come out :) I need a good 8 mile or so run... UGH

ooh ok i just figured it would also be uncomfortable with all the bleeding but then again ive never had a baby so im not sure what to expect .... me and s/o just signed up for the gym thought it would be a good investment now to get things moving with this baby and a great way to get my body back after labor:D

lol..oh all the thing we aren't "supposed" to do. Oh and after labor you're still gonna look/feel slightly preggo for a little while. A belly band squeezing the hell out of your swollen, puffy belly isnt gonna be comfy at all.

I didn't use one the first time around. This time i decided to try it, i ordered one called the squeem.perfect waist, if you decide its uncomfortable you can always wait a few weeks and try again. I have heard it can be really good for your tummy getting back to pre baby. I also heard it is more comfortable to wear right after delivery I'm super excited to try mine!
