Mother's Day is just around the corner, a day where we celebrate these special women in our lives and all that they do. If you are a new mother, you're likely experiencing many new feelings, everything from the joy that comes from bringing another life into the world to the annoyance of having to change your 50th diaper that week.
One of the areas where many young couples struggle to get back to normal after the birth of a child is their sex life. There are several factors you will have to take into account when you decide to reignite things in the bedroom.
Here are a few different ways to get back into a sexual groove after having a baby:
- Ditch the bed: Your bed is now likely the only place where you can get a few short hours of much-needed sleep. To jumpstart your sex life, look to other places in and around the house where you and your partner can be intimate. The couch, shower or even the car are all spots worth exploring.
- Give yourself time: Nobody will be expecting you to jump right back into bed after giving birth – in fact, most experts say to wait at least a month! Don't rush back into anything that you do not feel ready for.
- Plan around baby: With a small child in the house, chances are you will not have very much alone time with each other. Take advantage of the times when baby is asleep – especially during those midday naps. Putting off any tasks or errands until later will be good for you.
