I'm Kayleigh, I have been a member of this group for a while now but have mostly just been reading... I have a question for all of you wonderful co-sleeping mom's...
I am pregnant with my first child.. she's due any day now. I've already got everything set up so she can Co-sleep with us and I intend to do this until she wants her own space. However as many new moms in my position might, I am concerned about losing Intimacy in my relationship... My husband is AMAZINGLY loving and attentive... clingy even. ever since we got together we have been attached to each other most of the time... we spend on average an hour or 2 in bed in the morning just cuddling and talking, and sex is amazing when it happens (less now obviously, haha, but it was around 4 to 5 times a week...) My mom says we are gross with all of our cuddling and kissy-face stuff, lol. I know that he will be understanding of the situation, and probably wont even complain when he is feeling needy... but I'm really sensitive to all that and don't want him to feel forgotten at all.
don't get my wrong, I understand that our sex life is going to be shot for a good long time, and I am completely willing to sacrifice that for the emotional well being of our daughter... but its still something I would like to be able to work around.
Mostly, how have other co-sleeping mom's managed to find ways around all this, so that you can still have time to spend being close... ♥
