  • I feel your pain as well...on very rare occasions my daughter will sit with me for just a minute or two when I give her a snack she really likes. Other than that I long for cuddles. It's tough being a mom. :) Good luck!

  • Let me know if you find a way! I had such rosy, sweet dreams of my daughter's baby and toddler years. She had other plans. She's 28 months and still doesn't like to cuddle. One quick hug and then she's off and running again.

  • At that age the only time we would cuddle is when she was sick.
