  • Enjoy it while it lasts! Before you know it, he'll be too cool for you mom! :-)

  • To just wait it out. Its a phase and it will stop in a week or two.

  • he'll outgrow it before you know it. if he is doing it while you are dealing with other children he is likely jealous... its not the end of the world- they grow so fast, just enjoy his snuggles while you can (even when it is inconvenient!). i wish mine were still like that!
