Episode 3036: Robyn and Adam
Robyn and Adam had some typical newlywed peeves – he didn’t help out with laundry and she wasn’t a fan of PDA’s but their biggest struggle as a couple was over their baby boy, Rudie.
A lot of couple’s co-sleep with their kids and I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with that, but Robyn and Adam's situation was different than just adding a baby into the bed. Rudie had actually taken Adam’s place in the bed and Adam was sleeping in the guest room. New parents often find little time for intimacy, but with Adam in a totally separate room, there was no intimacy at all.
So what was keeping Adam out? Well, one of the reasons was Robyn had a hard time adjusting to being a mom. She was uncomfortable with her new body and extra baby weight. She no longer felt attractive and keeping Rudie in the bedroom was a way for Robyn to keep Adam at a distance.
Once Robyn started belly dancing and accepting her new curves she was ready to let her guard down, ready to let Adam back in the bedroom and ready to let Rudie sleep in his crib. And Rudie did great, he cried off and on for the first night, which was hard for Robyn and Adam to hear, but eventually he slept and since that night everything has been dreamy.
