How did you get Sexy back after becoming a Mommy? How did you go from Mama to feeling like a Sexy Mama?

I was almost a year and a half post-baby after my daughter was born before I found myself in a place where I felt sexy.

I am not 13 months post-baby after carrying twin boys to term and delivering over 12 lbs of baby. I have saggy skin, stretch marks and just had to have a belly button hernia repairs so I'm on the mend all over again.

I am also still breastfeeding which is a blessing and something I'm not ready to give up, but leaky boobs don't really lend to one feeling sexy, right?

I am having a lot of trouble finding 'sexy' again this time around. My husband still finds me very attractive and is not shy about his admiring of my Mama-ness.

But I am still not feeling all that Sexy.

What helped you Mamas feel sexy again? Clothes? Perfume? Massage? A leg wax? Sexy lingerie?

How did you get back to feeling sexy again?

Hoping with some great suggestions I can find my Sexy Mama side again.

Thank you in advance!

I took time to get ready and dress in nice clothes rather than lounge around in sweats, etc. I never really felt sexy until I was able to get back in the gym and loose some of the weight. I would try to get in shape and drink lots of water. Go out and purchase some clothes for yourself or get your hair done. Whatever builds your confidence in being a woman and not just a mother. Ask yourself what is keeping you from feeling sexy? Your weight, clothes, time to yourself and then try an work on that.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Treat yourself to a new outfit, or hair cut/ style or color :) I hate my body right now, but I try to do other things to make me happy with myself.
