Breastfeeding and sex Rawr ღ 1 child; New Jersey 768 posts

My daughter will be 3 months old on the 3rd but ever since I was like 3-4 months pregnant, my sex drive went down the drain. I don't ever get horny anymore. I thought it would come back after giving birth but nope. I thought maybe breastfeeding had something to do with it..
Did any of you ladies experience this? I feel like I will never be interested in having sex again, before I got pregnant I would have sex like everyday.. :(

Bfing can do that. My sex drive has been a roller coaster the last 5 years since having dd. maybe try to do things to work up to the mood. Like have a romantic dinner. Flirt all day. Give sexy kisses goodbye. Etc. sometimes you really have to work to get excited and it can be an all day process.

My daughter gets formula at least twice a day so I'm not EBF I thought since I started bfing less than I would get in the mood but it's not working
