First of all, Congratulations. Welcome to motherhood... Yaa.. it will take time to sink, contract to normal size. If you have normal delivery...then you can use abdominal belts or tie tightly old cotton sari around your waist. If c-section then you have to consult your gyno.

The uterus can take six to eight weeks to shrink to it's normal size and position and the tummy can appear loose and flabby for an additional few weeks. You can use an abdominal belt to support the abdominal muscles. The belt is available at all maternity stores.

yes there are particular belt.. i used one. to buy them u have to measure your waist then on basis of that u can buy that belt.and Don't worry for ur tummy as it takes 2 or more months to come on   shape .this is due to the baby who is inside our womb😊. if possible drink warm water and more liquids for first thirty days.and welcome to this beautiful world and congratulations on ur promotion from wife to mom
