Welcome to week 5 of the Breastfeeding Blog Hop hosted by The Gnome’s Mom, Happiness Redefined and me, The Slacker Mom! The linky for the hop will be open Thursday and Friday of this week, feel free to link up pertinent posts (new or old).
This weeks topic for the Breastfeeding Blog Hop is Sex and Breastfeeding!
Sex and breastfeeding…when I told YogiDad the topic of the week, he laughed! I’m glad he can find the humor in the fact that there wasn’t a lot of anything happening at our house while I was breastfeeding Judah.
For some women, breastfeeding can have profound physical effects that eliminate your sex drive altogether. Not an issue you want to face when you are already stretched thin by nursing around the clock and taking care of three kids. I had no idea the two were connected until I did some digging and chatting with some other moms in a moms group. I wasn’t weird, I wasn’t alone, actually…this seemed to be the norm. It was crappy, but at least I had some answers and some direction as to how to take charge of the situation.
What was your experience? Were you ready to jump back into the proverbial saddle at 6 weeks or were you running in the opposite direction?
