Will she ever change back again
Hi ladies and all,
Male here and looking for some advice or feedback from your experiences
First time posting here but really looking for some advice and some of your thoughts. Married with a one year old currently, and I am wondering if the sex life or passion is something that will pick up again eventually, or is it doomed.
My wife is still breastfeeding at the moment about twice a day and I read that might have something to do with lower hormones, and it's always me making the advances and trying to bring back that loving feeling. I understand with a one year old it's challenging, but I am wondering if it gets better and when ?
We've talked about it and my wife keeps saying things will get better once she's regained her figure a bit more and its due to her being tired and due to the breastfeeding. We split the chores roughly half half and I do all I can to make it easier for her, meaning I change the diapers, wash the baby.
She seems to have all the energy in the world to look after the baby and I feel like I'm always put last. When the baby is finally asleep, she's too tired to do much and I feel she would rather just be alone. When we are intimate, she says she does like it, it's something she wants, and there is no discomfort, but just she's too tired.
I am not out of shape and take care of myself so don't think it's due to me not trying there.
How long did it take you ladies to start feeling "normal" again? Can breastfeeding really cause such a huge change ? My only hope is that this is just a phase that will end when the breastfeeding stops, but it just feels like things aren't getting better.
