2-Month-Second Week (10weeks)
How your baby’s growing
If your baby’s sleeping through the night (five or six hours at a stretch), you’re one of the lucky few. Most 10-week-old babies still wake up in the middle of the night. You’ll probably notice that he stays awake during the day longer too – some babies this age are awake for up to 10 hours a day. An interesting note: whether your baby is a night owl or a morning lark, a long sleeper or short sleeper, he’ll probably stay that way throughout childhood.

How your life’s changing
Very few parents feel amorous in the weeks following childbirth, for very practical reasons. Even if you don’t have the time, stamina, or interest in having sex, you and your partner can still find ways to love each other.
Talk to each other. Keep the lines of communication open no matter how stressed you feel. Remember that you’re both going through huge changes and talking about them can help you feel closer.
Find time to laugh. When your life has turned upside down and you’re so tired you could be mistaken for a zombie, it’s as easy to laugh about it as to cry. Poke fun at your own foibles together.
Escape when you can. Go to see a movie together while leaving your baby in the care of a trusted relative or babysitter. Even being away for a couple of hours can recharge your batteries.
Love through touching. Sex isn’t all about intercourse. Kissing, cuddling, caressing and other kinds of sex play don’t require lots of energy and can help you relax.
