Tips for post-baby couples
Many post-baby relationships are in a bad state of repair. Below are some tips to help get things back on track:
Take an interest in each other (rather than just in the baby) – give your partner at least 5 minutes of undivided attention each day to check in and engage without distractions.
Create reciprocal arrangements around time-outs – both parents need frequent breaks from work and family.
Schedule couple time.
Offer willingly – don’t wait to be asked.
Stop expecting – start requesting.
