Push Presents For New Moms

Is a Trip to Fat Camp the Ultimate Push Present For Mom?

Forget teddy bears, flowers, and jewelry, there's a new game in town when it comes to new-mama gifts. Push presents have been around for years, but they're getting bigger and better. Just this year, Rachel Zoe was the lucky recipient of a 10-carat diamond ring after giving birth to baby Skyler, and Mariah Carey gloated about her new pink diamond and sapphire necklace after giving birth to twins Monroe and Morocco. But how would these mamas feel if they were given the gift of a trip to a fat camp to lose extra pounds instead of glittery jewelry?

Premier Fitness Camp, a fat camp of sorts, has put together a "Body Back" package intended to help new mamas return to their fighting weight. For $4,550, mom can visit the Park City, UT, retreat and receive daily fitness and nutrition training, massages, chef-prepared meals, and a complimentary Belly Bandit. According to the literature about the program, it is intended, "for fathers who are looking for the best push present without diamonds."

I would feel completely insulted. I would expect a fat camp gift only if I asked for something of that nature. I wouldn't even consider a fat camp for weight loss until I was at least 9 months postpartum.

Agreed with you all. 30% think this is a good idea? Wow. Moms have been losing baby weight without fat camp for centuries.

I think I'd be offended. Hey honey, here's a present for you to lose weight!!! I'm not a huge jewelry person but I do like it as a push gift because I wear it as a symbol of our child (I request a ring to add on my ring finger for each baby).

I'm not liking the "fat camp" idea, but if my husband bought me some personal trainer sessions at my gym (which has child care in the gym) then I'd be all for it. I would much rather appreciate getting my body back to a healthy shape than some jewelry that I will probably forget to wear.

that was my first thought, Natasha and danaruth! Who is watching the kid?!?! Love the free Belly bandit too-since mine plugged my ducts but since this person is obviously not breastfeeding, who cares!?!?

So while I'm off at "fat camp" - because my husband doesn't have the patience for me to lose the weight in a few months - who is at home breast feeding my baby?

Ummm NO WAY. If daddy tried to send mommy to fat camp, this mommy anyway would tell daddy where he could go. And shouldn't new mamas be focused on their new babies not their baby weight?
