Baby weight. When we talk about it, we talk about shedding it, getting rid of it, losing it, and leaving it behind. We really don’t seem to like the little jiggle that comes with making, well, a cute little jiggly, wiggly baby. When I see those magazines promoting the workout regiment of the celebrity who lost all of her baby weight within just four weeks of giving birth—or worse yet the ones who never put on baby weight—it doesn’t make me inspired. It actually makes me sad (some celebs feel the same way, like this one who wants to gain her baby weight back). Why were they in such a hurry to act as if pregnancy never happened? Why are they so ashamed to let it be known, by their appearance, that they made a life? It’s like they want to erase the entire experience, so they certainly don’t want to see evidence of it on their thighs. Screw that. How about this? How about you love your baby weight for these reasons.

Your arms are a cocoon

Your arms are not chubby. Your arms are a cozy resting place where your baby feels completely safe, supported, and surrounded by the touch of her mother. Your arms are your baby’s favorite place to be, so she sure is glad there’s a little more to them right now.
