in terms of a 0-6 month old, when it comes to being intimate with boyfriend/husband, would you have sex with baby in the room, or do you find that makes you feel awkward/weird, or would you wait till someone watches baby? Its a weird question i know!

I have had sex with my son sleeping in his bassinet next to my bed....he didn't seem to have a problem with it, and he slept right through it.......but once he was in his own room I felt more comfortable.......i would just keep the monitor on.....

yeah Kylie's comment was good and i think if you dont do it when your in the mood you never wil.. we have sex about every week and a half to two weeks, and ill admit it is awkward because ours is 14 months now we left her in the loungue room to play, she followed us in so we had to take her back out. when she was a newborn yeah no stress though we did it whenever we wanted they cant move around and dont knw whats going on it doesnt matter. but yes it is hard to keep the mood when babies awake if if they start crying or something

When your new parents you have to take advantage of any time when you both feel in the mood i reckon but i think having a baby watching or in the room awake is a complete turn off. Better to wait until bubs is sleeping or if you just want to have a quicky clip you baby into their swing/bouncer and they should be fine on their own for 5-10 mins or leave them to play in the cot just have the baby monitor with you so you can hear if there any issues. It's gets harder to find the energy and time when you have a toddler or a couple of kids. My husband reminded me that we did it when our daughter was about 6 months and asleep next to us..i was like noo we didn't did we!?
