The hardest part of adjusting to life after having a baby is just that — adjusting to life after having a baby. Everything is legitimately harder now that you're a parent and even though your little one can bring a whole lot of joy and happiness to your life, they can also wreak havoc on certain areas, like your sex life. If the thought of postpartum sex makes you roll your eyes, I get it, but there are things your partner can do to make postpartum sex more appealing and get you back in the game.
Because there's only so much you can do by yourself when you're covered in spit-up, you're leaking breast milk, and you haven't had a shower since yesterday morning. In those moments, postpartum sex is the absolute last thing you're thinking of. Instead, you're daydreaming about a nice, long nap. You're daydreaming about a basket of freshly folded laundry. You're daydreaming about Netflix, eating a hot meal, and having both hands free.
But if you want to rekindle that intimacy with your partner and if you're ready to have sex, it just doesn't sound worth it, there are 11 things your partner can do to make postpartum sex more appealing. Instead of being totally grossed out and irritated by the idea, you'll find yourself daydreaming a little more about hitting the sheets with your partner. (Sheets that were freshly washed and put back on the bed while you were napping. This is a daydream, right?)
