Hush, little baby, don’t say a word. Mama’s going to burn a few lbs. while she rocks you to sleep.
Alameda mom Darcy Novo Albrecht used her dance and cheerleading background to create Lullaby Exercises. The 35-minute, multipurpose DVD features exercises set to singer/songwriter Lisa Phenix’s upbeat bluesy rock soundtrack.
Wear a sling to do the easy sets designed to chill fussy ones and work muscles. Warm up with a line dance then move on to squats (pipsqueaks love the up-and-down action). The groove set works the abs standing up. And, last but not least, the sleep set sends your infant to snoozeville.
No mockingbirds or diamond rings required.
