The baby has arrived! Do you have time for your partner too?

Once you are born, life becomes more and more busy, and the time you give your partner is no longer the same. It is normal that after the birth of the child, your relationship with your partner will reach the second place, at least in the first year.

Once you are born, life becomes more and more busy, and the time you give your partner is no longer the same. It is normal that after the birth of the child, your relationship with your partner will reach the second place, at least in the first year.
It is possible that the new father may feel sidelined, because his partner is now a new mother and can no longer pay his full attention. But over time, when new parents get used to the routine, they will approach another kind of intimacy and closeness.
Here are some suggestions to get you closer to your partner:
Arrange a meeting like in the old days
The first thing you should do is hire a babysitter.

If money is a problem or if you do not trust a foreign person to take care of the child, then ask a family member or friend to take care of the child.
Going out into the city does not have to last very long, the goal is to spend a little time together alone, away from daily worries. You can walk, have dinner or go to the movies.
Arrange a meeting at home
You do not need a babysitter to pay attention to each other. Hang the moment when the child fell asleep. Resist the temptation to throw yourself on the couch and open the TV and try to stay together, indicated face to face. The fact that you focus on each other and for the price of a few minutes, can mean a lot. It often happens that new parents forget about this eye contact, which is very important in a relationship. Through these simple looks you will feel much more connected (chances are that they will help you resume your sex life).
Try to be creative
You do not have to wait to join in to spend time with your partner. For example, you can try to work together or if this is not possible, have lunch together at least once a week. Sometimes, it is surprising how a conversation can help you relax, especially when you meet the day and there is no child crying around.
Buy tickets early for an outing into the city
If you buy tickets for a play, movie, concert or sporting event, you will feel obliged to go! If money is a problem, you could share the cost of tickets and babysitting with another couple with a child.
Treat the weekend as a weekend!
Put the diaper pack in your bag, take a backpack with the necessary ones and take the weekend together as a family. take the little one to the zoo. You just have to focus on one place.
One final note: Make time for yourself!
It is quite possible that new parents will remain trapped in their parent's work and they will forget that they have to make time for them too. But it is difficult to give your whole time to another person. You don't necessarily have to give up time with your child, make time for yourself, refer more to the fact that you have to do something that you enjoy, whether it's listening to a favorite CD, taking a walk in the park or call a friend.
REMEMBER!
A happy parent leads to a happy marriage and also to a happy child.
