How do you get your snuggles?

As a mom, I want to ask all the other moms out there: How do you get your snuggles?! I mean, really. Whether your baby is 2 weeks old or 21 years old, what do you do to get them to let you love on them?

At 1 year old, I bribe my baby with chocolate milk :)
(The doctor suggested flavoring her milk to get her to drink more of it, and we settled on chocolate. Also, a cup with a straw gets her to drink quite a bit more than just a regular sippy cup.)

I used to get my snuggles at night before bedtime, when I would give Ellie her last bottle of the day. I would hold her close, lean in, and drop little kisses on her forehead, her nose, her cheeks. I was shameless in my snuggling, and she allowed it because she was getting fed at the same time. I really miss those moments already!

Now that she's one and we've ditched formula and the bottle, I still try to get my snuggles. I warm up some chocolate milk and put a straw in her cup. We sit together in her room where it's quiet, and I do my best to get her to snuggle with me. Most nights I get at least a few minutes of good cuddles. It looks a little different than it used to, but it brings joy to my heart just the same!

So mommas, leave me a comment answering the question: How do you get your snuggles?
I'm excited to hear your answers!

Hmm... that's a good question. Honestly, I am blessed with an amazingly snuggly baby. He loves to be held, hugged, kissed. He crawls over for hugs and I am happy to give them!

Emerson likes to kiss. She passes them out to everything, even the couch..and will randomly give me run by smooches...she never slows down for cuddle time :( BUT I will take my kisses where I can get them!

I got lucky with Adelynn, she LOVES to give cuddles.

Kaleb, who is 6, is a lot harder to get cuddles from. When he is sick, he will cuddle. Also, when I drop him off at school and when no one is looking, he will give me a kiss on the cheek and a hug. : )

I find that the older kids get, the harder to get cuddles, so I will take them when I can.

I get snuggles the same as you. I used to snuggle her everynight when I gave her her last bottle before she fell asleep. Now the formula and bottle are ancient history so we do a sippy cup of milk and the rocking chair in the living room with all the lights off till she falls asleep and I usually hold her another 10-15 minutes. It is so hard to put her in bed when she is that content and peaceful.
