ummmm, welllll, I can't believe I'm the only one, but the best advice I ever got was:
"It's possible to have sex *while* nursing"
Yes, you read that right, I mean what you think I do

Of course, there does come an age where it isn't possible, but I never would have gotten laid otherwise. And I'm a woman who simply can not go without

yup, been there done that. That was a little wierd for me at first, but you get used to it. As dd#2 has gotten older we usually aren't able to unless she's asleep. She gets so excited if she even sees us kissing that we can't keep her away. I couldn't have an intimate moment with my dh if I had a baby prying her way between us, wanting to be in the middle of it all. Apparently being left out is a very big deal.

When she was littler we just waited for her to fall asleep. once or twice she woke up, but she went right back to sleep. she seemed like she knew what we were doing and found it comforting and reassuring. but hey, what do I know.

Just too weird for me - I think the best I could get would be in the room (not on the same bed) with the baby asleep.

But I don't think it would negatively affect the baby in any way, its just too weird for me to do. Many cultures in the world all sleep in one room togehter and they still manage to procreate - our culture has just thrown sex out of proportion. Being a child of that culture though I can't get over it

^ Congrats! That is such an awesome name

I don't believe my dh posted this under my name! I'm usually too weirded out to have her on the bed with us. Plus recently I am trying not to wake her, so we have been going out to living room a lot more

I'm not weirded out by it, but DH is more comfortable with it than I am. I get too worried about it waking her up.

TMI ALERT!!

Just this morning, Dora became our best friend. For the first time in her life, DD watched an entire 30 minute Dora episode (this is the child that never watches more than 2 minutes of tv!) and I got me some lovin'!!!

hehehe -ds was concieved while dd was entertained in her high chair watching baby einstein :LOL

as for the other.. absolutely.. and the one time we've gotten to since her birth, I had to stop and let her latch on.

I think I worried about it a lot more with my firstborn.

I am psychotherapist, not a psycho therapist, just to clarify. I have never actually worked with psychosis-but my husband does and has brought them home before!

Okay, so back on topic. Dh has been very amorous lately (like 3 times a day amorous) and ds is crawling now..so what do you do. We don't have a play yard or anything. So we go in the bathroom and crack the door so I can see ds but ds can't see me. I can't tell you how NOT fun that is. Plus, I have to stop and go soothe him or check on him every five minutes. So it is not working out the best. Also, does anyone else feel VERY weird about taking a break to go breastfeed and then going back to it? Maybe its just my issues from growing up in this society.
Ds is going through the "I only want my mommy and I need to be with her 24 hours a day " phase. So this is another problem.

What to do?

We do it. He's never awake though...that'd freak me out. Truthfully, I think b/c we had sex a lot when I was preggo, it probably takes him back to the good ol days!!! It sounds weird, but it's probably the truth!!!
Now that's he's big...er, we just stick to the floor in our rooms or our couch...ah
the interesting things we do as our child sleeps.....

Yep, well said. Us too!

We've done it with the babe on the bed, and during nursing, too, but not once they get to a certain age. And not when they're fully awake and watching--that would wierd me out some.

Nope can't do it and that really sucks since all of us are sleeping in the same room till my house is finished (hurray for our new house) but both of my sons where moved to their own bedrooms and bed by the time they where a year old. getting Ds #2 back into the habit may take some time :

So how long is the average for cosleeping anyway??????
