Turn Down the Monitor

"I think it’s OK to turn off the baby monitor or turn it down for 15 minutes. Studies show that for women to enjoy sex and have an orgasm, the parts of the female brain that are associated with stress, anxiety, and worry have to deactivate and shut down. So when you have a baby monitor and you hear the baby move or gurgle, it takes you right out of the moment. Men and women need to do things that allow you to get into the moment. Turning off the monitor for a half hour is one of them."

I'm not sure about turning off/down a baby monitor. Perhaps a baby sitter is a better idea. It depends on the age/activity of the child (time of day), etc.
