Having sex in the same room as your baby? Is It Wrong?
Have we all not had sex in the same room as our kids at some point? I know I have and I am far from embarrassed to say we participated in a few exercise classes while our sleeping baby laid not that far away from us? Is having sex in the same room as your baby wrong in anyway?
By hell do babies change your sex life and not for the better, but after having a baby you have to jump back on the horse again and start riding. (You see how I snuck that bit of humour in?)
I would much rather my new baby was close to me, than leave it downstairs in the living room while mummy and daddy ran upstairs for some fun, at least I could hear and see our baby and knew she was safe.
Yes having a baby in sight can put you off, the whole look at the ceiling and think of England comes to mind when you try for the first few times after giving birth. The sheer thought of even a jelly bean going up there after a watermelon has just come out is rather scary.
Why would anyone think having sex in the same room as a sleeping baby is wrong? The baby is sleeping for a start and totally unaware of what is going on.
With older kids in the house our bedroom is our place, the only room the kids know that they have to knock on the door to come in. Why would we or should we have to adjust our lives just because we had a baby? Is it not how our baby was made?
While I would never feel comfortable doing anything of that nature around a not so little baby, I do remember we did once and our 9 month old woke and stood up in her cot, while we were fumbling under the bed clothes she was wondering what the hell we were doing. When we looked up, she was stood rather interestingly watching us.
“Daddy lost his sock and mummy was helping me find it” was the husbands reply. Needless to say we took to the kitchen table when all the kids were in bed from that day on.
