Holidays like Valentine's Day tend to get swept under the rug in the days and weeks after a baby is born, and while it makes sense, it's also kind of sad. Sure, there's a lot going on with a newborn, but parents should try not to forget that they're also still partners. They're not just mutual caretakers of a tiny human, but lovers and friends. After giving birth, it's hard to feel anything approaching sexy, and someone taking the effort to make a mom feel desirable is huge. The 10 sexiest Valentine's Day gifts for postpartum moms are the ones that make a mom feel valued and wanted, even if she feels like an utter hot mess.
Right after a baby is born, pretty much the last thing on a new mom's mind is sex. In order of things they don't want to do, sex is second only to hosting a dinner party for 30 and inviting their mother-in-law as the guest of honor. That's why there needs to be particular attention given to those new mom emotions if you want to give them something sexy. Think beyond lingerie they might feel self-conscious in, or fancy dinners that take hours (even if you manage to find childcare, her boobs will start overflowing by dessert). Think more along the lines of romantic gestures that cater to the largest of erogenous zones... the brain.
