  • It's up to the child. If it's too much, he or she will let you (and others) know that they feel smothered instead of mothered. Listen to your kid's cues.

  • If there's a limit, I'm more than certain I've passed it!

  • My 3 1/2 year old asks for a kiss. Then demands "many of it", meaning he wants me to smooch his entire head for as long as possible.

  • you can never kiss them too much. mine love kisses my 4 year old and my 2 year old could have me kiss them all day and nite if i would. when i give one kiss it always ends up being at least 10 of them and they love rubbing our noses together and tight bear hugs.

  • There is no such thing as too much, unless the child complains, then stop.

  • No such thing, unless they protest. In no time at all, you'll be lucky to get a kiss in (unless sleeping).

  • If your child is 1 yo he/she will definitely let you know if its too much they will either start squirming to get you off or start crying lol
