She's just so squidgy and she smells so lovely. grin

Is there some kind of therapy for this or will I just grow out of it?

YANBU. i still sometimes get the urge to eat my 6 year old. In a nice way.

YANBU. I wanted a good chomp on my new baby niece. She's delicious.

Ponders on how many calories a baby would be.

YANBU at all. My 6 yr old DS is so lush, I could just eat him. I hope I will grow out of it as I don't want to be a bunny boiler MIL in the future!!

I want to eat all babies or at least take a chunk out of their cheeks and thighs.

I still chomp on my DDs occasionally and they are 10 and 12. It is normal to want to eat one's children. grin

OOH now I really want to snack on a gorgeous, squidgy, irresistible baby grin

Oh yes. I used to lick mine when they were newborn. Total compulsion over which I had no control. Id lick their foreheads. Couldnt stop myself!
I smell them all the time too. They are teens now and my eldest smells different. He doesnt smell like mine anymore. Youngest does but theres only 15 months between them so I expect he will suddenly stop smelling 'right' soon enough.

I am sure they will be happy when I stop sniffing their heads during every cuddle. They think it's weird. grin

DH was on the point of lighting the oven when I smothered DD in olive oil and covered her in a foil blanket!

Argh! I literally could not keep lipstick on for years because I love those baby cheeks so much. Please send her to me.

Iseeyoushiver.... I thought it was only me that had a very real overwhelming urge to lick my newborns faces, like a big slurp up their face! I also had mild urges to bite and taste them and still get it with my 2 year old!

puzzleduck Sat 04-Jan-14 16:27:54

No, I want to squeeze my big kids all the time.

ISeeYouShiverWithAntici Sat 04-Jan-14 16:31:21

No, not just you. It was pure instinct and I couldnt override it. I needed to lick them.

My husband thought I'd lost the plot grin

I want to bake my baby in a pie

HermioneWeasley Sat 04-Jan-14 16:39:53

I still nibble my 4 year old.

They are all just so EDIBLE,

TallulahBetty Sat 04-Jan-14 16:45:42

YANBU, this is normal! smile

I want to eat DD who is 2, she is lush. I'd eat her little arms like spare ribs and have her squigy cheeks on toast clearly taken these thoughts too far wink

There is a Spanish saying. When your kids are small, they are so sweet and delicious that you want to eat them.
Then they get older and you wish you had. grin
Disclaimer: I nibble my 17 month old on a regular basis... While he doesn't mind... and nibbles back, he's teething

I'm 25 and my mum has this bizarre desire to kiss my cheek over and over with great gusto every time I see her. I avoid her now in case she tries to eat me. wink

I want to eat DD's neck. She's so chubby and squidgy. My 2yo has slimmed down a little but I could still pin him down and munch on his tummy.

That is what my pet Hamster said.

YANBU! My DSs are both just so scrummy!. DS2 especially with his chubby little legs and cheeks. They both smell gorgeous as well smile

Having teenagers breaks you of this! grin DS17 is nearly 6ft, 13 stone, hairy, and rather spotty. I adore him, but the urge to eat him has passed! grin

I am pea green with envy! Babies are so delicious. Make the most of every minute.My DD nearly 7 says 'stop sniffing my head mummy'.
