Taking care of a newborn and making time for your husband sounds almost like an almost impossible task. But is it really?
Being a mom is hard work, especially if you’re a first-time mom. But sometimes, because of how much work it takes to take care of your child, you might find yourself spending less bonding time with your husband.
So, is it really impossible to take care of a newborn and still have time for your husband? Here are some tips!
Share the work!
The task of taking care of your child isn’t yours alone. It’s important for married couples to share the load of managing the household and taking care of the kids.
There’s nothing wrong with asking your husband to help out with the housework. Working together makes it easier to finish whatever you need to do so that you can spend more time with your husband!
Plus, doing household chores together is also a great bonding activity. It’s a win-win situation!
Make time for one another
If you want to keep the romance alive in your marriage, it’s always a good idea to always make some time for each other.
Set aside one night in the week to serve as your date night. You could ask a relative or a close friend to babysit for you while you spend some time with your husband. Go to your favorite restaurant, watch a movie, and just focus on the romance in your relationship.
Sometimes, you just have to deal with it
You’ll have some moments when you really can’t find a way to spend time with your husband, even just for a couple of hours. It might be frustrating, and your husband might even feel sad about it, but that’s just part of being a parent.
Once you have a child, your relationship shifts from being about you and your husband, to being about your child. The important thing is to keep the romance alive and know that even if things don’t go back to the way they used to be, you’re still very much in love with each other as wife and husband.
