10th minute solutions dvds. Choose whichever style suits you, maybe pilates, if you have a birth ball the pilates on the ball is fun. The series does 5 10th minute workouts which you can do one at a time or combine so it fits in naptime.

I started running again at about that point, would go for 20 mins when dh got home from work. He got to play with ds on his own and I got to get out of the house on my own!

gentle pelvic lifts and some yoga will do. That and lots and lots of walking with the pram.

find out if there is a Buggyfit class near you - I did it with DD1 and it was great. Even if we did look like a bunch of loons jogging and squatting with our buggies at 10am on a monday morning...

i went to matalan this week and there was a sports voucher book in the carrier bag and it had a voucher for 3 free buggyfit classes! may be worth a trip so you can try it out.
