Is it just a normal phase? Amost 17 moths old

My son used to be lovey...loved to give hugs and kisses and I absolutely loved it! Now he will just shake his head no at me if I ask, and if he hasn't seen me for a night cuz he stays the night with his nana and papa he won't want to hug me at all. He loves to hug on his nana and dad though. Kinda makes me sad. Is this just a phase that a lot of kids go through or do I need to be concerned??

  • I should add that he's probably learning that he has some control of what he does and doesn't do. he knows that you want hugs but he also knows that he has the ability to refuse. It will pass and he will be back to loving on you.
