WOW! Midwife had some amazing ideas! What I used to do w/ my boys (who I called "velcro babies") was to dance with them. I literally held them as I danced and that was hard! I would also lay them down on the ground and do push ups over them and all kinds of crazy squats and make it like a big game of peek-a-boo. I do know of a group of ladies out here that have a workout class called Stroller Strides. They all go together and do walks/runs and then, they go to the park and do other activities. Meantime, their kids can watch eachother or all their moms doing crazy things. I had a very hard time getting my boys to stay in the childcare at my gym, but maybe yours won't mind. Leave her there with a bag of Cheerio's to keep her occupied and her favorite doll maybe? Also, the walks are great! Maybe you could get a weighted vest and put that on. That way, you'll get more of a workout while you walk. Finally, as a last result...you could put on a baby video like Baby Einstein for about 20 minutes and put on a workout dvd on your computer and do it while she watches her own show??? Dunno if any of that helps, but I admire your desire to work out anyway!
