Lullaby Express by chicks-n-chickens Review and Giveaway!

I am in love with this mommy and me workout DVD. Everything about chicks-n-chickens Lullaby Express is so soothing, inviting, relaxing, and just the thing I was looking for since having had my little girl. With my son I did mommy and me yoga and loved it. It was time for both me and my little man to relax but still strengthen my body. I haven’t been able to find anything like that since moving to Hawaii. Well now with Lullaby Express, I have that same combination – bonding with my little girl, a work out for mommy and some much-needed relaxing, chill-out time.

I love that this DVD features real-moms with  real babies.  Creator and Chief Chick, Darcy Novo Albrecht is fantastic. She isn’t overly bubbly, at all, she’s real, comforting, calm. She revs you up with the groove portion where you work on legs, bellies and your behind, all while carrying your little one in front of you (babies make the best weights!).  
After you’ve got a sweat going on, Darcy takes you through the sleep portion.  Many of the movements are natural to us mothers…rocking, swaying, holding your little one close.  But then Darcy adds a neck stretch here or a shoulder raise there and then suddenly this experience evolves and you are not only bonding and putting your little one to sleep, but you are RELAXING!  Most likely, your little one will be relaxing too and will be off to night-night land, as my little girl did.  …..aaahhhh….
Lullaby Express by chicks-n-chickens really is a fantastic “mommy and me” workout DVD, the best I’ve found, hands down.  The music used throughout the DVD is equally fantastic, even making me tear up during the sleep portion once…it’s good stuff, sweet, inspiring, perfect.

    Anything to try to help my little one get to sleep is okay with me. Plus I could use some exercise to help with that mommy pouch.

    I NEED this DVD because I want to give it to my SIL who is due NEXT MONTH. It looks like a fun way to get back to pre-bay shape.

  10. The Brown Family says:

    I need this DVD to help me shed my mama pouch of a tummy! After two pregnancies in two years I need all the help I can get. This DVD looks like a fantastic way to do that while still spending time with my kids. And I think that it could also help reinforce to my little ones that it’s good to stay active. :)

  11. Cynthia Metz says:

    I need this DVD for a few reasons. To start off with, here I am almost 14 months postpartum, 20 lbs. away from my pre-pregnancy weight, and looking like I’m 4-5 months pregnant. Also, sometimes it can be a real challenge getting Ella to sleep even when she’s clearly tired, so I bet this DVD would be great to lull her to sleep. Lastly, this would be a great activity for Ella and me to do together, especially since I’m frequently at a loss for things to do with her.

  12. I need this because I can’t seem to lose the baby weight still after two years. In fact, I think I have gained weight :(. Also, my children are with me when I exercise so it would be neat to do it with them.

  13. I need this DVD because I can’t fit my pre-preggo jeans over my thunder thighs!! It is very depressing. I have lost the weight, but I have not lost the cellulite and jiggle and excess skin. It’s like my body re-distributed everything to all of the worst places. Don’t get me started on where my boobs are now! Blah!
