If you are one of the about 4 million women who had a baby this year you may be struggling with getting your groove back post-baby. Your body has just gone through some major changes and you’re struggling to feel like yourself.
Struggling with how to feel sexy again it can be frustrating, which only exacerbates the problem. We have 5 tips to help you learn how to love yourself and feel confident again.
1. Forgive Yourself
First things first, stop being so hard on yourself! You just performed the miracle of life, it’s going to take some time for your body to bounce back.
Try to not be so hard on yourself and forgive yourself for not being “perfect.” Work on letting the anxiety go.
2. Don’t Jump to Intercourse
Instead of trying to jump straight to the deed, go back to a time when you and your partner first started dating. That time when you would have long make-out sessions or give each other erotic massages.
Take some time to cuddle naked together. Do anything that involves touching each other and getting physically close to each other.
3. Buy New Lingerie
We know you may not want to wear it right now but buy some sexy new lingerie. This tactic is similar to when you buy new workout gear as part of a new fitness routine.
The sexy new lingerie will help inspire you to put it on and try it out. Buy something that flatters your new figure. This will help you embrace your new shape and realize that you are still beautiful and desirable.
4. Mommy Makeover
If you are really struggling with embracing your new body it may be time to consider getting a mommy makeover. This procedure nips and tucks your body to give you more youthful breasts and a more slender body contour.
As your body goes through pregnancy your body goes through a lot of changes including changes in breast size. Post pregnancy your body may struggle with excess skin that cannot get addressed no matter how much you diet or exercise.
A mommy makeover can give you that boost of confidence that you need to feel like yourself again.
5. Appreciate Yourself
Focus on accepting yourself and loving yourself. Start by standing in front of the mirror and admiring your new body. Don’t focus on the things you don’t like. Instead, focus on the things you do like.
Have a mini photoshoot and take some sexy selfies. You could even throw on that new lingerie we talked about in number 3.
The best part about the selfies is you can save them for when your confidence starts to waver. The camera will also capture angles that others see that you can’t see of yourself.
