Re: Baby who isn't affectionate

DD wasn't very affectionate.. and still really isn't. She can be, from time to time.. but it's definitely not like some kids.

The other day, she was hugging the 'momma nesting doll' and I was really jealous.

when she was about 1yo, she was really not affectionate, but it has gotten better. When I super need her cuddles, I admit, I put on an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba and hold her on my chest so that I can feel my baby against me.

add to that that she didn't say 'mama' until about 21 months, and I was feeling pretty rotten for awhile. She would push us away when we tried to hug or kiss her.

I hope your baby gets more affectionate as mine has. I think it helped when daddy and mommy up'd the PDA level he was deployed for almost half her life and so she wasn't really used to seeing people be affectionate. but who knows, maybe she would have been the same either way.
