How To Keep The Romance Alive After Having A Baby

by - December 19, 2018

You’ve probably heard the stories from your friends about couples who seemingly fell out of love after their baby was born. It didn’t happen instantly, they weren’t in the delivery room looking at each other thinking ‘this isn’t meant to be’.

No, it’s more of a gradual thing that can sometimes come when you have a baby. Most of your attention is on the child, so you forget to keep the fire burning in your relationship. Instead of being pulled closer together, you drift apart.

Clearly, you don’t want this to happen at all. So, here are a few ways you can help keep the romance alive:

Be intimate with one another

For many couples, sex pretty much goes out the window after having a baby. As a result, you don’t have that fiery passion that you did before. This is a significant aspect of all healthy relationships; you need to have a good sex life! Now, I know a lot of women are scared about intimacy after pregnancy because of all that’s happened down there, and you just don’t feel sexy. You feel like you won’t live up to the standards you already set yourself. If this is something that genuinely concerns you, then there are women’s health companies like Viveve that provide treatments to help you return to your former glory. Regardless, you need to make an effort to be intimate with each other! Even if it’s once a week, that’ll go a long way to keeping the fire burning.

Go on regular dates

Dating is the easiest way to fall back in love with someone as it’s how the two of you fell in love to begin with! Think about it, you used to go on so many dates and have such a fun time, but that rarely happens when a couple settles down and has a baby. I’m sure one of your parents will take the child for an evening, and that gives you two the chance to go out and have some fun. A romantic dinner for two will give you time to sit down and be alone with one another once more. It’ll feel like old times, and you’ll reignite the romance in your relationship.

Be affectionate!

One of the best things about being with someone is that they can make you feel loved by tiny gestures. A small kiss on the cheek, a cuddle from behind, or just holding your hand - all of these things give you those little butterflies in your stomach. If the two of you show your affection, then you’ll instantly feel more romantically involved once more. Something as simple as holding hands while you push your baby in their stroller will bring some passion back into the relationship.

Just because other people’s relationships have fizzled out after their baby was born, doesn’t mean yours has to follow suit. Yes, a lot of couples do experience that slight romantic dip when a baby comes along, but you can get over it. Follow the tips in this article to keep the romance bright and burning in your relationship!
