Not a fan, but the kids have always done it.
And if I was to say, "no don't do that" even with a reason, it would hurt them.
It's brief and not often... they are always the initiators.
Everything is innocent until it isn't. I won't be the one to take innocence from them.

Kissing toddlers on the lips - WDYT?
This thread has made me realize that the few times DS has given me a kiss when I ask, or by surprise, it is always a giant, open mouthed, slobber attack on my mouth and nose, without fail he goes for the mouth even though DH and I don't kiss him there. It's disgusting and heart melting all at once and I would never discourage him from doing it.
I'm thinking if it's genuinely bothering you it is more an issue to bring up with your MIL rather than him and as other posters have suggested just focus on teaching him his body his rules. I'm assuming she's the only person doing it so it's not a topic you're faced with daily?

Gotta admit I love a good slobbery kiss on the lips from my 23mth old. Gives us both a giggle and we both crack up afterwards. I'll miss them when he grows out of it.
I wouldn't want any of the grandparents doing it to the kids though. U should just set some ground rules with the outlaws OP.

Lol..I didn't even know there was a "thing" about to lip kiss or not to!! Not something I have ever given a seconds thought about!
I kiss my kids on the lips everyday as does their dad...I presume my parents do too but I've never taken much notice..it's a brief greeting, hug, kiss, done...I'm pretty sure other relatives cheek kiss?
My 10 and 12 yo still kiss me on the lips at the school gate...never even occurred to me that others don't do it! FTR - my kids are rarely sick, I've suffered cold sores but my kids never have....

The thing is she drinks like a fish, smokes cigarettes and Marijuana, and gets cold sores.
I ranted at dh after she left and told him next time she visits he better tell her not to do it, because if i have to say it it's not going to go down well.
Things are already rocky between mil and i. I've been trying to make more effort for dh. But i know if i say something she will not take it well.
I don't want anyone kissing my children's faces/mouths except dh or i. And we don't kiss on the mouth unless ds1 initiates which is rare. I usually kiss him on top of his head or forehead.
Ds2 gets kisses on his head or cheeks from us only
