In brief: Tired

Your probably just very tired.
Taking care of a new baby is very difficult. When you finally have a moment to relax, all you probably want is to sleep. Don't neglect your relationship, and it will get better.

In brief: Major life change.

Having a new baby is such a joyous time, we often don't expect how stressful it can be after they're born.
Parents are tired, anxious, and their "emotional energy" is now even more divided. There's nothing wrong with not being interested in sex when a new baby comes - it probably happens to everyone, at least for a short period of time. If it's persisting, please talk with your doctor!
