Do You Kiss Your Child on the Lips?

I know it’s kind of a weird question, but I’m genuinely curious. Obviously, I do. That’s my little girl and I above sharing a smooch during our recent trip to Florida.

I ask because apparently seeing parents kissing their children on the lips freaks some people out. I will admit, I was one of those people before I had a child. And then I experienced the overwhelming love of being a parent and suddenly all my qualms about mouth to mouth contact with a child dissipated.

My boyfriend, however, is one of those people who thinks it’s totally weird for parents to kiss their children on the lips. His logic is that mouth kissing has romantic connotations and should be reserved for your significant other. There are so many other places to kiss your little one, why the lips?

So where do you stand? Do you kiss your child on the lips or is it a little weird for you, too? Share your thoughts in the comments.

And if you do love kissing your little one on the lips, invest in some of Bordeaux Baby Kisses. It is the best moisturizer to keep your kid’s face and lips super soft and smooth.
