Sexy is a state of mind, and that's a hard state to reach if you haven't showered in days and are wearing yoga pants and a spit-up stained t-shirt. Now, no one's suggesting teetering on your stilettos while you rock your newborn or chase after your toddler but feeling sexy is one of the first steps to desiring sex -- and face it, those yoga pants aren't sexy.

"Moms feel guilty about taking time for themselves, but it really doesn't take that long," advises Chase. "Wear a baby doll style dress and leggings instead of yoga pants. Or get a pedicure."

Feeling sexy doesn't just mean physically, but also how you're feeling mentally. If putting on a sexy new nursing bra (yes, they do exist) or your favorite perfume puts you in sexier state of mind, it's one step closer to wanting and getting sex.
