Date-night tips for mom

With all the business of baby feedings, spit up patrol and naps, the days begin to melt into one. Spending the night out with your significant other becomes a thing of the past. Maybe you’re overwhelmed by all of the new responsibilities or are trying to take on more than you can chew. Take heart. All of your effort will pay off in the long run as you develop a strong bond with your baby. But be careful not to forget about not only yourself, but also the relationship between you and your partner.

Sometimes all it takes to add a little skip in your step is spending some quality time with the one you love. Never feel guilty about calling a trusted friend or family member to care for your baby. All couples need some time alone to rekindle the flame in their relationship. This is never truer than after baby is born.

Play it up! After the date has been set, psyche yourself up by wearing risqué undergarments beneath your normal clothing. Give him a peek if the moment presents itself. The anticipation is sure to keep you both smiling.

Make a plan! If your baby will be cared for at the sitter’s home, turn your home into a romantic suite for the two of you to enjoy. Light candles and set the tone with the right music. If possible, skip cooking for the night and have dinner delivered. Who needs a sink full of dirty dishes? If take-out is not an option, choose a meal you can both prepare. The idea is to make the night all about the two of you together.

If you’re going out for your date, consider your favorite hangouts. Perhaps you have a favorite restaurant that means something special to both of you. Or maybe you’d enjoy going to a pool hall or mini golf. The goal is to have fun and enjoy being a couple again. You may have to think about a hotel in order to show off your sexy lingerie. However, if your baby is sound asleep when you return home, enjoy one another in the comfort of your own home.

No matter what you do or how you do it, enjoy every moment of your night together. Never underestimate the need for a strong bond with your significant other. Your relationship is the foundation that keeps the family happy and healthy.
