I was wondering how couples with small children are able to find the time to spend quality alone time together. My 7 month old daughter is breast-fed, so she is practically attached to me all night and day! I worry about my marriage! Any advice, please?

thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my question. I know they say that it should get easier once they are a little older. It doesn't really bother me, but I don't want my husband to feel that he needs to go elsewhere for attention. You had some really helpful suggestions. Thanks!

Quoting Mackenzie:

My hbusband and I struggled with that with our first born. We discovered that we had to "schedule" time to be with one another. We both work full time and the thing that worked the best for us was a "date night". We didnt have to go out or anything, half the time we just sat around and talked or watched movies. Because we scheduled it wee were able to find a babysitter (even though I was breastfeeding, I just bottled some and sent it with her as she wouldnt be there at sitters but an hour or two), And one thing that worked exceptionally well, especially after the birth of our 2nd daughter was the spontaneous little notes and "trinkets". I would randomly leave a little I love you note on his pillow witha hershey kiss or, made a list of all the things I loved about him and stuck it in his truck where I knew he'd find it. He loved those things and I still do them randomly now. It saved us though those rough time. And remember the key is always communication... if you need time with just him, tell him... good luck



i 100% agree.
