After you have had a baby it can be easy to put your emotional and physical needs to the back of your mind as you give your little bundle your undivided attention.
After giving birth, a woman can feel undesirable and too tired to get frisky under the covers, but sex and romance are important to help you stay connected and keep your relationship fresh and healthy.
Lock lips before you leave in the morning
Swop your quick morning peck on the cheek for a true lip locking experience. It won’t make you late and it is a really nice way to start the day.
Watch telly together
If you are too exhausted to get up to anything, watch a film on the telly and cuddle on the couch together. Being romantic doesn’t mean you have to enjoy candle lit dinners every night or spend hours in bed, sometimes nothing beats a movie, takeaway and a cuddle on the couch.
Get a babysitter
Ask family or friends to watch your youngster one day at the weekend in their house and rather than you and your other half going out, head back home and spend time under the covers. Definitely beats a lunch or dinner date any time.
Tell them you love them
When you were young and child-free you probably declared your undying love for each other daily. But now that love is directed towards your baby, forgetting that both you and your partner need to hear it as well. Random times like when you are cleaning the kitchen, creates the perfect opportunity to say it.
Send a saucy text
Send your other half a saucy text in the middle of the day about what you want to do to them later.... just be careful it’s not their work phone or that there is a slight chance their boss might see it.
Look at each other when talking
How many times have you talked to your other half while your back was turned or you were in another room? Probably more times than you care to remember, if you’re being honest. To help keep your connection strong, look them in the eye when talking to them, even if it’s about boring mundane things eye contact is really sexy.
