I don't know how much help I'll be.. But I also had a significant decrease in my sex drive after I had DS.. I only JUST got it back last month (DS was 15 months old) but I also just got my period back around that time after getting off the depo,, So Idk if the depo had a lot to do with it for me?!

i can think of a few causes that you might explore.
are you breastfeeding? that usually completely kills all mojo.
are you depressed (postpartum)? also a mood killer.
did you start a hormone birth control method?
are you on any other medications that can affect sex drive?



as far as advise while you try to figure out a root cause.
you are in "mom mode" all day long. it takes a bit to switch gears and start thinking sexy thoughts. what you need is time to switch modes. i know, like you have a lot of time for yourself right now.... but hubby will help if he wants it that bad. take time to shower/take a bath, de-stress, pamper yourself, calm your thoughts. when you get out of the bath spend some time naked but not looking in a mirror. lotion your whole body with a scented lotion you like. take your time. daddy should be putting baby to bed this whole time. while you lotion yourself (and maybe put on light makeup if that makes you feel sexier) think sexy thoughts. all the days thoughts should be out of your head by now and you need to think about being a partner, a lover, an individual, a woman. think about what makes you feel good. you get the idea.
good luck!!!
