Humping?

My dd is 9 months old. She's recently got to that clingy stage where only mummy will do.. when she is with other people or is begging me to pick her up I go to her when she finally gets into my arms especially if I take her face to face she makes humping movements as she cuddles in.. I didn't think anything of it to begin with as it was just seconds at a time but now she even tries to cuddle in and will do it for at least 20 seconds sometimes she makes noise other times she will be silent. She only does it to me and she doesn't do it when she's sat in any seats or harnesses.

What is she doing and what does it mean? I feel a little ignorant but it's such funny behaviour. Is there anything I can do to stop her doing it? My friend said non of her girls did it and I'm embarrassed to ask anyone else blush

No idea sorry but if she's clingy, I wouldn't be waiting till I take her back. Only let her go to other people if she wants to go and take her back as soon as she wants to come. It's the best way to deal with separation anxiety IMHO.

Is it like burrowing into you? My dd rubs her face against my neck when she's particularly cuddly (8 mo). Both of mine did a fair bit of what looked like humping the carpet just before starting to crawl so it may be some kind of muscle stretching practise relating to that? Though, as is often the case with babies the answer may be "god knows"!
