Our expert says:
This is quite a common difficulty. Libido difficulties are often made worse by tiredness, and women often (but not always) have more difficulties with their libido than men! Furthermore, women often (but not always) tend to take on responsibility for children who are not sleeping etc - this ideally is a shared responsibilty and a problem that you and your husband need to tackle together. The facts are that (1) you have a loss of hunger for sex (common) but are still interested in sex (great to hear and a good sign), (2) the tiredness due to the interruptions you have with your 3yr old mean that you struggle to stay awake long enough to BE sexual with him. Your options are to (a) change the sleeping patterns of your 3 yr old - you need his assistance and support with this, and/or(b) find ways to be sexual at other times when you are less tired, and/or (c) have a baby sitter from time to time to give you couple time so that you two can connect emotionally and physically as a COUPLE and not just parents.
