Our expert says:
Penny, it depends on the reasons for you not feeling sexy now - is it because you're tired, feel like you are constantly 'on tap' and being vomitted on/cleaning up nappies, struggling to shed weight gained or to exercise, as a mom struggling with the idea of being sexy and a mom, do you have postnatal depression...etc, etc? Remember that this is a huge transition in your life - if you are breastfeeding, your body is full of hormones that can impair sexual interest and some women struggle to enjoy breast touch from their partner when their breasts are mostly the source of nourishment for their child. Your focus and energy may mostly be on learning how to be a mother and all your maternal instincts may be focusing on that, and in so doing, your love life and your focus on yourself as lover/partner may be secondary to your role as parent right now...
The first step is understanding what it is that makes you feel not sexy, and then address things from there. If you are still not sure, then please repost a new question with more specific information and I'll respond to the particular difficulty you are having.
