As a co-sleeping, baby-wearing, breastfeeding kind of mama, I love discussing everything involving natural parenting topics. And you know what else is natural? Sex with your husband. After having a baby and getting the all-clear from the doctor that your body is ready to resume the nookie, many of us cannot wait to get frisky.
On Coffee Shop Confessions, one mom admitted that she and her husband had sex with their 8-week-old baby right there in the bed with them, making the panel cringe. But it seems that the mom confessing was also cringing at what she had done. Let's roll the videotape ....
Now as I said, I'm a co-sleeping mom, but when it comes to having sex, my husband and I do not get it on with a kid in the bed. And this doesn't mean we don't have sex. We just don't have sex in the bed. There isn't some rule where doing the naughty can only take place between the sheets, right? Why not try the couch, the shower, or the kitchen table?
If you're a parent who has done the deed with baby right there in the bed with you, then that's cool. Whatever works for your family. The baby here is just 8-weeks old and I'm sure mom and dad were super quiet. But did you notice how mama felt really uncomfortable with it all? To me, that means she should take the sex to another room. Or even the floor in the same room. Heck, why not just do it standing up against the wall. That would be hot.
For the mamas who do schtup their husbands with baby in bed, I have to admit that I'm a tad jealous. Your baby must be the best sleeper ever.
Do you think this mom crossed the line between attachment parenting and "too close for comfort" parenting?
