14Intimacy Is...Different

Laying Down With Baby

Some women feel "touched out" by the end of the day, leaving very little room for some fun with their significant other.

In case you haven't thought about it yet, getting intimate with your partner is going to be a little different while breastfeeding. That's not to say that it won't be enjoyable or rewarding, but there's no doubt it will be different.

It's not always a guarantee that breastfeeding will affect your

drive between the sheets, but many women claim that it does. Your hormones are going crazy, you're preoccupied with all things baby, and honestly - you're being touched most of the day while breastfeeding.

For those who continue to have a thriving intimate relationship, it's not uncommon for milk to leak while doing the deed. The hormones that course through your body while being intimate can cause you to spring a leak, which certainly adds a new dynamic to the whole ordeal.

Whether you're no longer interested in this part of your relationship with your partner for the time being, or you're dealing with breastmilk finding it's way into the party, it will be a new experience, and one that you and your partner have to get used to for a little while.
