In brief: Tincture of time.
Pregnancy caused your abdominal skin to stretch, so of course it is flabby after delivery.
Much of that extra skin will resorb by itself in the coming months, and a good exercise program will speed it up. Stretch marks are another story; there is no definitive treatment for them (despite some companies' claims), but they will decrease very slowly (months to years) on their own.
