Format: Paperback
I'm a new mommy (Wendy was born a massive, beautiful eight pounds seven ounces in May), and I'll be frank: my sex drive was feeling a little under the weather. Every time my husband George (a firefighter, so hardworking and such a catch) would come home from work, he'd stuff the leftovers into his mouth, climb into bed with me, and then he'd give me that nudge. Ladies, you know what nudge I'm talking about - the "let's make love" nudge. But I was exhausted and feeling just plain unsexy from chasing Wendy around all day. So I'd just fall asleep and leave Frank unsatisfied. To quote the Love Guru himself - and not Mike Meyers, but Ian Kerner - "foreplay had become chore-play."

THEN one day I read Love In The Time of Colic - I was a huge fan of his last book, Passionista: The Empowered Woman's Guide To Pleasuring a Man, so I figured, what the heck, I'll check it out. And EVERYTHING CHANGED!!! Kerner's sex tips are super easy to follow, and most of them are emotionally driven, as well, so you can start your changes from the inside out. Little changes made all the difference: after reading Love In The Time Of Colic, I'm a changed woman. When I push Wendy's stroller around there's a sexy sashay in my step; once I put Wendy to bed I immediately start to light some candles and run a hot bath. What can I say, Kerner: you've changed my life!!!!!!! This advice is so indispensible, truly a must-read for any couple. I immediately bought it for all my friends who aren't single!!!! (And when they eventually get married, you know what their baby shower gift will be!)

Thanks to Ian Kerner, Wendy's little brother is on his way. A MUST-HAVE!

This book is a must-read for anyone who who is married with kids. My wife and I are both 42 and we're blessed with two fantastic kids, ages 7 and 14 months. Things between us had cooled off recently (again), and while I wasn't thrilled about it, I understood that it was normal, so I accepted it. Thank God a friend of mine recommended this book to me a few weeks back! It honestly has initiated a huge change in my life and my relationship with my wife. I realized that things didn't have to be that way! I can still be just as passionate with my wife as I was in college when we both went to the same school and I'd blow off studying to spend an amazing night with her in her apartment. I wake up everyday now for work looking forward to the night that lies ahead. This is the happiest I've been in years. I've even started going to the gym again so I can get back into shape and look good for my wife! This book has been a breath of fresh air for me. If you've come to expect less pleasure and enjoyment from your life with your spouse since you've had kids, you gotta give it a read.

Our son just had his first birthday. He's spent 365 nights between us and with each night it seems we are growing further apart. Maybe I'm just being the emotional one... this book was great (from a guy's perspective) because it took time to explain my OWN emotions as well as what is probably going on in her brain. Now I just have to find a way to get my wife to read it!

Good luck to everyone out there.

This book gives you both and man and woman's point of view of intimacy after baby. Personally I really liked this aspect. Also it is broken down into different sections, (that they clearly let you know of in the beginning) so if you are only interested in the points that appeal to you, you can skip to those parts. However i read the book cover to cover and really enjoyed all of it. I was pregnant with my first baby at the time and reading this book ahead of time definitely prepared me for what to expect from my relationship with my husband after our baby was born. Give this book a try!

Format: Paperback
Kerner and Raykeil examine an issue that new parents always seem to struggle with. Getting back into the groove of passion in the bedroom after that six-week sabbatical following childbirth. Written in a fun and friendly manner, the authors manage to untangle the mess that is your brain and offer amazing tips on overcoming the struggles to get back to bliss. Because they offer insights from both the male and female prospective, the book comes off as well rounded and more helpful than others. The book gives insight to what is going inside your partner's head and helps explain some of the fears and frustrations that you, yourself are facing. One of the books greatest features is the cheat sheet that's located at the end of the chapter that helps both moms and dads navigate the emotional battles they face and pick up hints on what to do right. Easy to read and full of truth, Love in the Time of Colic, is a great helper for putting that spark back where it belongs, between the sheets. mrsvaljones@netzero.net

What a great book - one of Dr. Kerner's best! New parents often face many challenges (sleep among them) and I applaud the others for this funny, cute, candid and practical guide to having better sex again after having a baby. As a sex educator, I recommend this book to others.
