How often are you doing it?

Just wondering if all new parents stop having sex after the baby, or is it just us?

  • lol...yeah after both my kids were born we went through a dry spell...but now that they are a little older...the youngest is 8 months it is better. Once you get into a routine...or at least maybe a better one you will get "your groove" back!

  • It slowed down a little. But we were able to pick back up where we were. At least 2 or 3 times a week.

  • The only time we didn't have sex after having a baby was the first 6 wks, bc I had stitches and it was just to painful. After that first 6 wks, we have been at it several times a week, if not every day. :-)))

  • We started having sex again 4 weeks after our baby was born, and since then it's 3-4 times a week.

  • We do it a lot. Try to every other day. Even if I am too tired, I tell him to make it a quickie.

  • Well, for six months before and almost a year after I had our son, we didn't have sex. There were decent reasons in the mix, but most of it was me being ridiculous about my body and my life in general. I did not make the same mistakes after I had our daughter and we got back to it about two months after the birth. Just don't let it become an issue, that's my advice to you.

  • In 3 years we've had sex about 5 times. Ouch. And one of those is my second child! lol
