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?

I have also licked babies but only second time round, I had no urge to lick my eldest. Weird.

BarbaraW - that is so reassuring, I (and DH) thought I was a little bit weird!

My gorgeous 8-month DD has chubby calves, wrists & a lovely tummy, the best cheeks ever.

I just want to sink my teeth in grin

I love to eat 4 month old DS's cheeks and ears whilst making omanomnomnomnom noises! His ears stick out just like his Dad's so are great for nibbling on and his cheeks are just so chubby and gorgeous.

He also gums at my cheeks grin

I'm now having to resist the urge to go upstairs and pick up sleeping DS so I can chew on his cheeks

I always smell my baby. Even his breath smells cute.
My mum understands as I can ask her to come over and smell him and she says yes, and she does it!

I too want to eat my delicious DSes. They are three and nine months. DS1 is just so wonderful, hilarious, sweet and loving (and edible) while DS2 is so stunningly beautiful that I can't believe he is mine (and so edible).

They do smell different when they are coming down with something. Even when they are older. They also smell very different when they are more than usually well and rested - my DDs smelled amazing when we came back after two weeks in Florida, all suntanned and relaxed and fit after loads of activities and virtually no screen time.

My 2year old niece tells me I'm food before promptly chomping on me, does that count?!
25w with my first so I'm sure it will come!

While never wanting to chow down on a baby, I DO find their squidgy limbs and feet irresistible. They remind me of shampoo sachets. This probably dates me, as I haven't seen such things in yonks.

YANBU! You simply must take a few tiny nibbles from their sweet corn toes...

My children are much older now and I still want to eat them up with a spoon sometimes..
