Hey everyone! Ever since the day Jasper was born I've been a big fan of Babycenter and CafeMoM, therefore I do a shit ton of reading, posting and replying. I've always read posts from moms or advice links from BbC weekly emails, about parents cuddling with their kids before bed or naps. When my son was 0-7 months, this happened regularly because he was mostly immobile except for sitting and rolling. But ever since then (and he's now15 months), we'd thank the heavens above if LO actually snuggled with us for more then 40 seconds, or if he sat in bed or a couch with us calmly to read or cuddle.. It's impossible! He wants to squirm and play, walk and run, explore and terrorize, eat the dogs food or climb the stairs... He does have somewhat of a bedtime routine just to calm down but we've never been sticklers about routines cuz they've never worked well for us. But anyways, I guess my question to everyone would be: do your 1-2 year old kids actually snuggle/cuddle with you and your SO? And not just being in the same bed with you and still climbing the walls. I mean cuddle in the literal sense of the word. So many posts in so many different categories on every site I look at, show posts about cuddling down with their toddlers... I want to know HOW!?! And when did this start happening peacefully?!
