What can we do to keep our toddler distracted so we can have alone time?

I need some advice and tips. I have a 2 yr old son who is so attached to me. I am also a SAHM, so I rarely separate from him. However, my husband and I have been having a hard time trying to get intimate moments together because our son will panic if we leave him in the living room and we go into the bedroom to be intimate together. He’ll want to physically see us, so he knows he’s not alone. We don’t want to leave him unattended, but we also don’t like to be interrupted or distracted while we have our time together. I have tried cartoons on TV, tablet, toys, and books, but our baby won’t budge, and it’s taking a toll on our sex life. Please help.! What are safe ways to keep baby distracted while we get intimate…?! Also, we don’t have a babysitter near and are new to the town we live in, so we don’t trust just anyone if we were to hire one.

Please don’t risk the safety of your child so you can have sex. I really hope this is a joke and people don’t actually do this.

Is this a joke? IT HAS TO BE A JOKE.

I had the same issue several years ago. And we would wait until the kids go to bed. Since I have 3 kids now I have the older ones play with the younger one if we feel like slipping away for a few minutes but normally it’s after they are in bed

You don’t get alone time
You have a toddler
Try alone time and watch shit get trashed or worse!

Wait until bedtime….there is no such thing as alone time with a toddler lol. My husband and myself have our time together when our daughter goes to bed at night.

Do what most parents do - wait until the baby is asleep. I would never leave a 2 year old alone in the house. because that is what you are doing essentially. What if he went out the front door and walked out into the street and got hit by a car? Or picked up by a pervert???

I’d say leave that time for when he’s asleep. But I’m also one that thinks it’s inappropriate to do “intimate” things while ur children are awake. It can wait till they are sleeping

Naps & Bedtime, when you have an active toddler you don’t get “alone time” until they go to Sleep…

Never ever leave a 2 year old alone while awake you just gotta wait till hes in bed to get it in. So nap times or at night

Bed time or nap time, it’s the only way,
You could start getting him used to a few minutes alone to play during that day too, it will help the separation anxiety and he eventually won’t even notice you two slip away for a few minutes,

Everyone experiences this in some way or another with kids though, so don’t feel alone.

All these people bashing you is a little sad, I used to work overnights so waiting until my son was asleep kind of wasn’t an option since I was at work, we have a playroom for him that we would put him in and make sure he was safe and do a quickie in the bathroom or bedroom with the baby monitor on so we could make sure he was fine, try finding a movie that he hasn’t seen yet but you know he would like, put it on and hurry it up girl.

Wait until he’s asleep. If that doesn’t work you either need a babysitter or put your sex life on hold.

We can only do it at bedtime or when my other two with the grandparents we wait till my one year old is taking a nap

Why wouldnt you just wait for him to go to bed and asleep. A 2 year old shouldnt be alone at all. 2 year olds get into everything. Its not safe to leave a 2 year old alone by themselfs. When the child is older then you can sneak off to the bedroom and have sex but not at 2 years old.

Yeah, we have 5 kids, it’s not easy but bed time is the best time lol good luck!

I’m confused by this entirely… does your child never sleep? Of course he’s not going to want to be locked out of a room away from mom and dad while he’s up and active? Wouldn’t you feel terrible if something happened to him because you were more concerned about your sex life than his safety?

You must be a first time parent. Not to sound too harsh but dont expect any alone time ever, especially for that. If they’re down for a nap or in bed, maybe you’ll get lucky…until then… not a chance. Not while you have alone time, not while you take a shit…none of it. Maybe in like 10 years…but definitely not as a toddler.

Personally I think it’s weird to pull quickies knowing my babies are awake and alert. I’m a SAHM too and I wait till nap time or night time. Mommy first then grownup play time. If you put your little one on a firm schedule you’ll have the same times daily to do the deed. Noon-two pm then eight- morning. :heart:

Naps and bedtime ma’am put him on a schedule if he’s not already on one. I can’t trust yo leave my 2yr old alone to go to the restroom I can’t imagine would would happen if I left him alone to have sex😳

Are you actually taking the piss? Your son is 2 and should NOT be left alone unsupervised at 2 years old, let alone for you to go to the bedroom for a quickie! I think you need to get your priorities right and start being a parent and putting your child first! You can have alone time when he’s in bed, or get a sitter but under no circumstances should a toddler be left unsupervised! It’s just pure dangerous!
