Cupid’s Advice:

Life is definitely different after bringing a newborn baby into the world. It affects your marriage in many ways, one of them being your dating life. Cupid has some tips on how you can make date night special even after you have a baby:

1. Include your child: Having a child is a new step in both you and your significant other’s lives, so why not embrace this change by including your child on date night? Maybe the night won’t be as romantic, but it sure will be fun going out with your little angel and experiencing the world as they see it.

2. Embrace parenthood: Instead of going to dinner and a movie, why not check out some places you would like to bring your baby, like a park, zoo or aquarium.

3. Reminisce: Head out for a romantic night on the town and relive your newlywed days by appreciating the love and passion the two of you have for each other. Just because there’s a new baby in your lives doesn’t mean you have to forget who you are as husband and wife.
