It’s freaking difficult to workout with a newborn. It just is, plain and simple. You’re exhausted, they’re crying, if you’re breastfeeding you’re craving food every 5 minutes, and if you’re back at work, there’s just not enough time in the day to fit in a work out.
A baby monitor is expensive. If you want some of the top notch ones, you can look at spending about £90 and being that my baby is staying in our room for 6 months, it just doesn’t seem worth it at the moment. However, there are times where my baby falls asleep in our office while I’m working and I find I need to go into another room for a minute (like the bathroom), but don’t want to disturb her by taking her with me.
