My mum was never huggy/kissy, but like someone else said, I want to shower my children with as much love as I can. I can't help but kiss him, his dad does too. Although I did get a mouthful of sick the other day :S
Same here, I have no memory at all of ever getting so much as a cuddle of either of my parents, but I am VERY kissy and cuddly with my baby. I'm always kissing him and also kiss him on the lips. Just like I do with my nieces and nephews too. I dont see a problem with it at all xx
I don't kiss LO on the lips. I give her lots of kisses on her cheeks, forehead, feet, etc but not on the lips. Perhaps it's because my parents never kissed me on the lips so it just feel awkward .
I'm sure that's definitely it for some people...it does feel awkward if you're not used to it. My parents never showed affection to us, and when they did it was awkward and I don't want it to be like that with my LO. I love her so much and I love kissing her so much, sometimes I want to crawl inside her mouth lol I want to be free with affection so that she grows up to be an affectionate person, or at least has the option to without feeling awkward. My DF is also very affectionate with her, much more so than he is with his other 2 girls, I think because of how his ex was with them and it was learned behavior iykwim
I do on occasion but really prefer not to. We never did with my parents, we were always kissed on the cheek or on the head. I was brought up that kissing on the lips is for partners, etc. I don't mind that people do, it's everyone's individual choice. I kiss lo constantly but only occasion on his lips. My stepson kisses me like that and I feel slightly uncomfortable but I suppose because he's nearly 12! haha I try to avoid it though and don't want him kissing my LO on the lips as I've seen him with cold sores before.
I said I wouldn't but I do. It's almost impossible not to. But I wouldn't kiss anybody else's baby on the lips and would hate it if someone tried to kiss my baby on the lips. Not even his father. I think it's a special right reserved for the mother, because I believe that it's a normal process of germ recognition that fosters the BF relationship. It's biologically normal.
I don't plan on continuing into his childhood though, I think that'd be a little weird and it makes me uncomfortable to see grown kids kiss people on the lips. But then again I was left to CIO and have always had issues with intimacy and showing affection where as my brother was never CIO and was comfortable and affectionate towards my parents.
