DS has never been one for a cuddle because he hates to sleep and seems to have linked cuddles to the dreaded sleep in his mind but a few weeeks ago he started to roll into me for a cuddle in the morning and today he crawled up and sat on my knee cuddled up watching telly for 10 mins!
I am so happy i was starting to think there was something wrong with him even though i knew there wasn't really. Seeing my friends babies cuddling them made me really sad I can't tell anyone in RL how happy i am because i've always said it doesn't bother me it's just how he is but i honestly feel like dancing
How old is your DS? Mine's not one for cuddles either. He used to cry to be put down! Last night he was teething & upset but refused to let me cuddle him for comfort! He's 13 months now so I'm still hoping he'll go through a clingier phase!
He's 10mo. I've heard of a few babies that are just independant and don't like cuddles they all seem to grow out of it i hope yours does soon too. TBH todays cuddle was him just sitting on my knee with my arms round him to i'm sure other people wouldn't count it as a proper snuggly cuddle but for DS it was amazing. I just figure he's secure enough that he doesn't need physical reassurance from me but now he's older i'm hoping he will find enjoyment in being close.
Take it as a sign that he feels happy and secure. Well, that's what I kept telling myself! My 3 dc really did not like cuddles. I found that once they could get away from me, by choice, that's when they became more cuddly. DS2 is now 5 months and starting to crawl so I'm really hoping for unforced cuddles any day now!
