Keep in mind that you're uterus doesn't return back to it's normal, pre-pregnancy size until about 6 weeks after you've given birth. That's going to effect the size of your tummy a little bit. Give yourself time, keep eating healthy and doing appropriate postpartum exercises. If you're breastfeeding, that's going to help you out, too!

Girl - if you are just 3 weeks post partum and have lost all your baby weight ... your tummy will go back! Give it some time ... you JUST had a baby!!!! You spent 10 months stretching and growing that little miracle .... your tummy won't go back overnight. ;-)

That said ... I don't think 'firming creams' work super well ... but it is a good idea to keep the skin moisturized - that should help it return to normal.

Congrats on the baby!

Just give it time! A lot of the tummy thing is hormonal and it will be a few months before those are back to normal.

Yeah it just needs time but, to help it along you can get some control top panty hose or underwear that helped me a lot in fact I am still wearing that stuff and my child is 5 months old!

I do agree with the other responses that you just need to give it some time, but I'm on baby number 2 (he's 5 months now) and I lost my weight early as well. I was still left with some tummy area issues and it's almost summertime so I started using a great new product by Mary Kay called Time Wise Cellushape contouring system.

As an Arbonne Consultant I have to recommend the RE9 Body Serum & Lotion, I have some before and after photos that I can send you that show the effects of the serum and lotion, it helps to tighten, moisturize, etc., I have used the product since the birth of my second child and it has worked wonders.

Let me know if you are interested.
