    I'm touched whenever I'm standing/sitting/lying still enough to be pinned down (x2)

    Lol. Constantly, there also seems to be a competition of who can be touching mum the most. DS holds my hand while we sleep, read books, draw, even today in the pram he wanted to hold my hand while his dad pushed. DD likes to sit on my face while I sleep.

    Oh, I'm so glad it's not only me. We co-sleep as well, and I am a single Mum..I guess times 3 would mean triple the amount of touching, aarrgghhh. I always figured that maybe they would go bug one another.

    I have to have an op some time in the next month, so I am trying to encourage walking, not carrying, as I won't be able to carry her around for a couple of weeks. All I get all day is "I want a cuddle" "Do you love me?" That one lind of freaks me out a bit. I love her more than anything, but it's like a default question. 800 times a day..do you love me?

    Us right now. Lol

    Umm yes & no. If he's playing he likes his space. But if he's chilling he likes to just sit next to me and snuggle to watch tv. He's pretty smoochie. He asks to be carried a fair bit but I usually decline because I'm rather big & pregnant!

    But he's also reasonably independent. We have a good balance I think. Affectionate without being overwhelming.

    We also have an 'open door policy' with our bed, so while he doesn't really cosleep any more he comes in for cuddles every morning and if he wakes at night he crawls in too.

    I think not cosleeping anymore I do miss & appreciate the snuggles. Whereas when he was on me 24/7 it drove me bonkers.

    Though in the next 2-4 weeks someone small will come into the world & I'll probably not have my own physical space again for a LONG time!

    DS is pretty good. He gives me space & happy to play by himself but every 10 or 15 mins he'll come over to touch me someway eg cuddle, touch my arm/knee/leg, climb on me, want rough ups or just to sit next to me.
    We don't co sleep but he comes into my bed in the mornings for cuddles. I enjoy them because give him 9 or 10 years & he won't be doing that.

    Mine likes to touch me. She strokes my hair and kisses and hugs me a lot. I think it's sweet. Luckily, I'm not with her all day long, so it's not touching all day long.

    A lot. And that's the way I like it
    I touch them a lot too, stroke their hair or rub their back as I walk past...

    My DS, 2.5, is quite unaffectionate and always has been (self weaned at 6 months, never seemed to enjoy bfing, didn't gaze at me while feeding, has never rocked or patted to sleep, never co slept!!) He rarely comes for cuddles, only when sick or really tired to watch tv and even then its more for contact from me to him, not him to me (doesn't squeeze when cuddling, just lets me do it or sits next to me ) and does not kiss impromptu either. that's just him though, very independent and confident.

    I think DD will be v different which will be nice
