While giving birth to a child is a beautiful and miraculous event, it also affects your sex life. First, doctors say you must wait 6 weeks before getting it on again. If la cuarentena isn’t enough to kill the mood, you also have a newborn who refuses to sleep through the night and can’t get enough of breastfeeding. Still, as a new mom, you should have sex with your significant other. You don’t want him to feel neglected!
Also, being a mom doesn’t eliminate your sensuality. You are still a woman with sexual needs and desires. So get in the game and take notes! Here’s how to make time for sex when you have a new baby.
Sexy time during nap time.
When baby is asleep mami and papi will get freaky? Yes! One of the best times to have sex when you have a newborn is when your baby has gone down for a nap. Babies take frequent naps, so why not use that to your advantage? Lily, 37, is a new mom from New York City and swears by nap-time sex. “It's hot when you think you might get caught,” she admitted. “In this case, when you think you might be heard!” Also, sex will rarely occur at night since that’s when newborns are wide awake — and crying for milk!
