In brief: Talk to him.

Complex yet common scenario.
Talk to him about how you feel, communication is impt. He might feel slighted because he has to compete with the baby for your attention. You may not be as flirty now since your maternal instincts tell you to focus on your baby. Fault is rarely a one way street, & u both could do things to help the situation. Consider counseling, or even a set date night.
