It's hard to imagine being intimate with your partner after you've just delivered a baby and have been sleeping in three hour intervals. But, your OB/GYN will probably give you the green light at your six week appointment sending your husband into a giddy tizzy and you into a panic.

Before you run into your closet to hide, here are some pointers on how to get sexy again.

  • Take a shower before bedtime to make sure you are milk, sweat, and spit-up free. While you're at it, shave your legs.
  • Get yourself a babydoll lingerie set. It will hide any parts you are still feeling insecure about.
  • Set the mood — light some candles and turn down the baby monitor!
