"First comes love, then comes, marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage." Obviously that little song is outdated, but it still makes you wonder about what happens to the love you share with your significant other once a baby comes along. It's easy to get caught up in the life of your little one, and let the needs of your relationship fall out of focus. Fortunately, there are plenty of everyday habits that'll make your partner feel loved when you have a kid. That way neither one of you will doubt where you stand in each other's life.
One of the biggest mistakes I made shortly after giving birth to our son was assuming my partner knew how much I valued and appreciated all the things he did for our new family. But, unless science-fiction becomes reality, people can't read minds. So I had to be more mindful and recognize that my husband needed to hear how much he mattered. Thankfully, like most habits, once you get in the routine of nurturing your relationship after having a child, it will feel like second nature. So check out these ways you can ensure your partner still feels loved when you have a child.
