co sleeping and intimacy or baby in the bed equals no nookie
i co sleep with our daughter. i enjoy the closeness, believe it provides security and a sense of safety along with the other scientific jazz. plus when breast feeding it makes it easy to feed in the middle of the night and have her fall back asleep fast. i have that "mother" instinct and if her breath even quickens i'm up. on the plus side she is a happy baby and falls asleep easily as soon as she hits that boob. downside adult time is far and few between. she is not fond of her bassinet and would rather nap in her bouncer so daytime romps (and short ones alas) are what is called for. but truthfully i am never really in the mood and wonder if my mojo will come back as she gets older. its harder on daddy cuz he wants to be close but the baby is always there or always needs something. he has thrown around the idea of dropping her off at my mothers for us to make a playdate, when if we are dropping her off for a hour or two all i would really want to do is get solid uninterrupted sleep! i had read that breastfeeding kills the vibe, at the moment as long as i get a few kisses here and there i'm good. i get giggles and smiles and cuddles all day long from my Nova! daddy will not be happy if my baby high last a whole year! lol anybody else lose the lust after birth?
