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!
