Love Your {Postpartum} Body - 5 Ways to Improve Your Postpartum Body Image

My self confidence has most definitely evolved since becoming a mom. While I still have my moments of discontent, I have never loved my body more--and not necessarily because it looks better. But because I am eternally grateful for what my body has given me--my baby, the best gift of all. 

How can I be upset at it when it's done such an amazing thing?? 


Plus, I don't want my son hearing me lament about my body. Because contrary to popular belief, boys suffer from body image issues at pretty alarming rates. I don't want my body issues to cause or influence his. In fact, I hope he never has any.
