sex and nursing!
 
hi all, i am 2 wk post partum and hubby and i dtd last nite i am exclusively pumping and i noticed while we were dtd my hubby was avoiding my breasts(i think he thinks they may be sore). But i was just not really into sex! How do you keep your sex life alive while nursing? also maybe it was becuase we had to use a condom becuase i havent been for my 6 wk and havent gotten the IUD yet.

So how do you make sex fun while nursing!

For me, th e BIGGEST challenge was to be able to "turn off mommy mode" and turn on wife mode. It can be a real challenge! The easiest way for ME to turn off mommy mode was to have DH help me through out the day and to touch/hug through out the day as well. that way it kinda built up to bed time, or nap time.

Do you WANT DH to include your breasts in sex/foreplay? This is a personal choice for everyone. Some women don't want it others don't mind, or even enjoy it. I found personally that as DS got older Liked it, but when he was small they were off limits.

Honestly, at 2 wks PP, take it easy and just try to go with the flow. You WILL find something that works for you and this WILL change as the baby gets older too. (it gets easier).

I can't help you in the getting turned on since that wasn't a prob for me :) But I can tell you that until I weaned The Kid at 14 months, The Hubby wouldn't touch the boobage. He said that it felt "icky" to touch that knowing The Kid was eating off of them.

2 weeks PP!?!

Um, I don't think I could even think about sex at 2 weeks PP.

I think DH will come around.

Don't stress at 2 weeks pp over not being "into it". Your hormones are out of whack, and little to no interest is normal.

:spit: Thanks for the laugh!

At two weeks I was ready too, but since I had stitches I wouldn't...he's 3 weeks old today, and I think I will wait at least another week or so...LOL...

I don't mind for DH to touch/kiss but not on the nipples, kwim?

I sugguest getting a really sexy nursing bra (yes, they do sell them) and leave it on during...guys always love lingerie!
