Many parents, especially those first-timers with a new baby, want to sleep share so as to keep an eye on their little one. However, they also want to have a healthy sex life and sometimes find it a little difficult with a little person in the same bed. So how do they get around this problem?
Obviously, now that you have a baby, you are not going to have the same privacy that you enjoyed before your little one came along. Also, you will not have the same spontaneity as before either. This means that you will probably have to be somewhere else in your home to have sex so as to not disturb your baby. There will come a time when one or both of you will get irritated by having to do this so be sure to talk openly to each other as to how you are feeling about this situation.
If your baby is asleep when you are in the mood then gently move her into another room so that you can enjoy some time together. When you are done, move your baby back into your bed again - your baby will not realise that she has not been in the same bed the whole night.
There are some babies who are quite happy to sleep in their own cribs for a few hours, before waking up and demanding to be with mommy and daddy. This poses no problem with your lovemaking at all, as you have the few hours before your baby wakes up to enjoy yourselves. If you are lucky enough and your baby is contented to sleep either in her crib or with you, then simply put her into her crib on those nights when you and your partner need some privacy.
