Yes it is normal ( for some women). You just had a baby. You have so many emotions going on right now. Your body image may be an issue for you now..... insecurities and just exhaustion from having an infant may be the problem. Try a "date" night.....plan an evening in ...without baby ... and (compromise) make love to your partner (even if it's not really what you wanna do at the moment) to give them the personal attention they need too.... remember that your partner now has to share you with a baby .... they are probably feeling neglected and will cause a strain on your relationship. In turn make sure your partner is giving you everything you need... if you need more help with the baby or just around the house, tell them! If your needs are met then it is easier for you to -want to-and actually do please your partner as well.
