Over the years I have bought alot of work out books and found them to be quite depressing. All the pictures would remind me of a bad gym class in the seventh grade. Baby Om far surpassed the other books I have bought in terms of quality. The writing and photos match the state of mind I want to acheive. So I picked this book because it was the best looking . . . and found it was jam packed with poses, exercises, baby messages, and lots of other good info. Great baby shower present.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved this book for postpartum yoga - it has a special section for cesarean moms, which was the reason I bought it. It has series of gradually increasing challenge, which I also like. However, I found it WAY too hard to incorporate my baby at first. Having a c section, it was hard enough to get in and out of the poses. Also, my newbron needs lots of attention and its hard to relax and focus on myself. Maybe this will change with time. Also, in terms of the baby interactions segments of each series, Baby Om was a little demanding of its babies - these sections included a full body massage and several exercise movements all in one sequence, and encouraged the mom to "keep trying" when baby resisted - my baby did not like this. I prefer Itsy Bitsy Yoga for baby yoga, as it gives very useful tips (such as going slow, stopping if baby is unhappy, etc) and offers different poses based on small developmental steps. A great book for moms, especially c section moms, but not the best for baby in my opinion.

Format: Paperback
I have not done that much yoga in my lifetime and liked the idea of learning yoga with my 3 month old baby girl. I was afraid the books would not be able to tell me how to do the poses correctly, but there are no mother/baby yoga classes around where I live so I thought I would try the simple poses and see how it went. I looked at all the books online and at the book store and picked this one because the quality seemed to be better that a similar book, so I took a chance. I was very happy to find the instructions for the poses were very easy to follow and my mother who does yoga everyday said that my poses were very good and it looked like I had been taking alot of classes -- not only could she not believe that I learned it all from a book but with a small baby there on my hip! The messages are very good for overtired cranky babies.

Format: Paperback
I found this book to be very complete, with details on body positioning/benefits/etc. for each pose/exercise for you and your baby as well as many variations to make it work for you and your baby. They also included some information on baby massage and a special workout for c-section recovery. Its worth reading a few times before you dive into a workout to choose what you want to do and how you want to do it, rather than read while doing the workout and getting bogged down in all the options.

Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what I was looking for... it offers a great yoga workout in each stage of postpartum recovery and getting back into shape, and it also integrates your infant. A lot of programs are either primarily focused on the infant (and, let's face it, we as new moms are the ones who need the workout and the release that comes with it), or forget the baby altogher having you leave your little one lying next to you (which is impossible once they become mobile). This book combines both and integrates yogic movements with your baby and without, depending on the move, as well as giving tips on infant stimulation throughout the practice. It also teaches different asanas to practice based on the age of your infant. It is the perfect yoga book for new moms!

Format: Paperback
This is one of the few books that I know of which illustrate real yoga positions done with a baby. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and the pictures are beautiful! These positions are a wonderful way to bring your baby into your yoga routine and baby really delights in all of the attention, and face to face contact you are able to give while you practice!

Format: Paperback
This gorgeous, inspiring book ALMOST makes me think about having another baby just so I can experience "Baby Om" first hand.
The instructions for each pose are concise and complete, the illustrations and graphics are easy to understand and the pictures are priceless. Also included is a Chapter on the Birth Process itself, written from a very realistic and open point of view.
The "Mom's Boxes" provide some first hand experiences which affirm the teachings and offer insights from a different -- beginner-mind-esque (I think I just made up a new word!) point of view written by practitioners of Baby Om.
I am stocking up on this one to give to anyone with a new born or for a unique, really useful and bound to be treasured forever.
