Ive visited here before but mostly I just lurk. So anyway lacey will be nine months in a couple days and is totally not into hugging or cuddling at all. Seriously it breaks my heart. She hasn't slept in my arms since she was about three months old. Now im glad I can just put her in her crib and she will go to sleep on her own, but I want to feel that bond with her.
Now she is crawling and will crawl over to me and just pat my legs and want up so I pick her up and she wiggles til she is facing away from me and then starts fussing agian. Also she has started pulling up on things and when she falls and gets hurt she just starts screaming and won't let me comfort her. It literally takes me like five minutes to calm her down.
Sometimes I think its because I started letting her cio now she just doesn't need me. I know she is healthy and happy and I am so blessed, but I was just wondering if anybody elses's baby was like this and do they get more cuddly as they get older.
I let Caleb CIO and he in no way has acted this way. He's a cuddle bug and has become more so now than ever.
I think you just have a truly independent little girl. Just take it slow with her if you want to hug and cuddle on her. Start off with kisses then put her down. Then, you can eventually add some hugs and cuddle times then put her down. Eventually, you'll be able to do this for longer periods of time and she'll get used to it.
