Don't forget to let Dad assume some baby duties, too! Although you might be the only one who can feed the baby if you are breastfeeding, your husband can help out with diaper duty, naptime, and bottle feedings. It's nice to have a little break, plus it's the perfect opportunity for Dad to bond with your family's new addition.
When you are cleared to "do the deed," and you feel up to it, make it a priority. Scheduling sex might seem unromantic, but making it a part of your usual routine will help keep you connected and ensure you're making time for each other. It's important to note that many women take much longer to have a sex drive after giving birth, so make sure to keep the lines of communication open and let your spouse know how you are feeling.
