Do You Have Sex With Your Baby in the Room?

There's no doubt that having a baby changes your relationship. Hormones can wreak havoc on your sex drive, round-the-clock feedings can leave you exhausted, and then there's the baby. If he shares your room or even your bed, his fussing and crying could put a damper on things.

Which brings me to my question:

Do you and your partner have sex while your baby is sleeping in the same room with you?

Not if the kid's old enough to ask 'what are you doing?'

All three of our kids did the co-sleeping thing as far as coming into our bed if they had a nightmare, etc. And no, we never did have sex while they were in there. Just didn't feel right for us and was not comfortable for us, either.

With our youngest daughter, she shared a room with us until she was about a year-and-a-half, with her crib set-up in our room. If she was asleep, we would get busy in our bed while she slept quietly in her own. We made it a point to be quiet, but that was not a problem.

You know you're from Arizona when you feed your chickens ice cubes to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs...

Yeah, I've done that, many, many times.  They slept in our room until they each started sleeping thru the night (at 8 & 13 weeks, to be exact).  After they "moved out" into their own rooms, obviously there was no reason to do such things.  There was never a moments thought about if or how long my kids would be in my room/bed; my room is my sanctuary, not a playpen.  Neither of my kids has ever slept a night with us in our bed; if one of them is sick, I'm glad to go lay with them in their room.  My boys are now 10 and 5, and as much as I love them, they are well aware that they are not the sum-total of mothers existance.  They were additions to my life, not the other way around.

I sure have and I wouldn't stop if I heard him. Only if he really needed me, like a cry, but we heard him tooting at 4 weeks old and it was funny lmao...he kinda killed the buzz but we still did our thing.

Yep I did when #3 was little.  His crib was in our room and so we had no choice.  Our house was small.

I tried before, but it felt too weird. I felt like a pervert. Someone so innocent in the same room? I feel like I am cheating on my little boy when I have sex  - what if I got pregnant again? It's too soon - and my DS deserves my undivided attention at least untill he's older.

Yep! When our son is asleep for the night we definitely have our down time, and can't wait until we can have him in his own room, and then we will really go crazy, we are in a relationship; not monks living in a monastery. This is what couples do plain and simple.

I have and still do have sex with my baby in the room. My daughter is 2 now and still sleeps in a crib in our room.  We will not stop having sex just because she is in the room.  She is sleeping and has no idea what is going on.  It isn't a big deal.  When she was co sleeping we have had sex with her in the bed.
