I don't know about you and your baby, but my little man just isn't a cuddler.
When he was newborn and still really young JD would only go to sleep if we were cuddling/holding him. I remember those first few nights, we were mistakenly rocking and shushing him to sleep, staying up for hours sat on the sofa with the 24 hour news muted in the background (it's fair to say we didn't know what we were doing!).
He would nap on us, too, during the day. But quite quickly he became disinterested in cuddles. Jake doesn't like to be 'bustled' - he doesn't like people bothering him and 'petting him'. He isn't interested in cuddling us unless he's tired or under the weather.
Oh - don't get me wrong - on his 'bad days' he's clingy, but not for cuddles. Just to be held up off the floor and looking around.
More and more, I find myself wanting to cuddle him. To snuggle his warm body and smell his baby smell. I want him to want to come into our bed in the morning (but he only stands it for about 10 mins!) and to fall asleep on us again - but these are now becoming rarities. They happen only when really tired, or not feeling himself. I love those cuddles we get at night, after the late feed and we sing 'twinkle twinkle'.
I hope we get our cuddly JD back after this new phase - mummy wants cuddles!
