In brief: Rest, help with

Baby, stop or change anti-depression medications if on them + possible:- 1) AndroGel (testosterone gel), small amount on skin after shower. 2) estratest, (esterified estrogens and methylestosterone) 3)possible low dose (20 mg) testosterone injections every 2 weeks if your circulating serum testosterone is low.
4)viagra or cialis. All are off label, meaning that they have been approved by fda for other indications than improving female libido.

In brief: Good relationship

After the post-partum period restores the normal hormonal balance in your body, the primary factor in increasing and maintaining your libido will be fostering a good relationship independant of the child with your partner. Unfortunately, mothers are often so consumed by childcare that they "forgot" how to be an attractive and fulfilling sexual partner.
