Tips for Positive Interactions with Your Partner

If you have a child you are no stranger to finding that making time with your partner can be almost impossible at times!  It can be so hard to find time to talk to each other let alone trying to connect on a deeper level.

Many couples struggle during the first year of their baby’s life to maintain their groove with each other.  This can lead to dissatisfaction with the relationship.

There are steps can you make to keep your relationship with you partner strong, and even to make it stronger than it was before the baby came.  Below is a list of positive interactions that can be beneficial to keeping the spark and connection with your partner:

  • Providing your partner with baby (and toddler) free moments to finish a meal
  • Telling your partner they look beautiful after they have been up all night with the baby.
