UK mum uses baby as a weight to drop pregnancy weight

Meet the new mum who has come up with a way to juggle losing weight and looking after her kids at the same time - by using her baby as a weight during workouts.

Charlotte Brooks, 30, gave birth to Mylah four months ago, recently decided she wanted to be a bit more active.

But the single mum said every time she tried to follow fitness routines on YouTube, Mylah would become restless.

So she started using the little one in her routines - doing squats while giving her a cuddle, lunges with her in her arms, and peekaboo sit-ups.
