Re: Breast feeding and sex (or lack of)
I think that's very normal. I was not only in the mood but we could never find time for quite a while. I actually have deemed breasts off limits for now. My DH seems to be fine with that -- I think he understands they are utilitarian right now! My DH seemed to be as uninterested as I was for the first few months, mostly because it seemed like more of a chore to schedule it in with all the other chores we were trying to accomplish! Napping has been much more of a priority for both us. When my period came back, I started to desperately want sex during the time I was ovulating -- and of course my DH (the workaholic) was usually the one who was too tired on those days! Babies are exhausting, so I say do what you can but don't beat yourself up over it. I guess it might be different for us than a lot of couples, because we were together 11 years before our DD was born. But as long as you're both talking about it and you make an attempt sometimes, I think that's okay. Just make sure the lines of communication are open so your DH understands how you're feeling. Your body goes through so much, it's hard to feel like it's your own for that first year, I'd say.
