Privacy Aspects for Parents
“But how do we make love if the baby is in the bed with us?” That's your question, isn't it? It's the question your friends will all ask of you, too. How do you manage to have any of the intimacy a couple certainly needs? The answer is simple: You don't “go to bed together” in bed!
What are your options?
Leave the baby with a babysitter or a family member.
Keep a baby monitor with you after baby has fallen asleep.
Using a sheet or blanket, opt for the floor.
Put the baby in a playpen.
Find a fellow cosleeper among your friends and very frankly suggest trading an hour or two of time to watch each other's baby so each couple can have some time alone.
There are ways around the problem. It just requires a little creativity. Isn't lovemaking a creative act unto itself? So be creative about where and when as well as about how!
