We kind of hate the pressure on women to take off the baby weight as soon as the ink on the birth certificate’s dry. That’s why we loved Kate Middleton unabashedly showing what a swollen postpartum belly actually looks like when she introduced the world to baby George on the hospital steps the day after he was born.
However, it looks like that belly’s bounced right back to normal a month later -- just look at the photo below! We’re hoping it’s just her athletic physique and the fact that she didn’t gain too much weight during her pregnancy, but the duchess looks teeny tiny in photos, shown on TODAY, of her of grocery shopping in Anglesey, Wales. With her hair pulled into a ponytail and wearing a chic Breton striped shirt, cropped skinny jeans and flats, she’s in chic mommy mode.
Moms-to-be and new mamas, remember you should check with your doctor before exercising after birth, and make sure you’re getting enough extra calories to stay healthy if you’re breastfeeding. Also, be thankful you don’t have paparazzi following you to the grocery store just four weeks after you had a baby.
