This might be a dumb question, but when do babies start laying their heads on your shoulder? My DD is 5 months old and she doesn't rest her head on my shoulder, like when she is tired. I want some cuddles!

DD only did when she had no choice, a newb haha
After that I get lucky when she wants to cuddle or falls asleep on me :(

For my son....about three years old, lol - he was sooo unsnuggly. My daughter is 9 months and if she's tired, she'll lay her head on my shoulder.

LO is 13 months and does it only when he is tired or sick now. :/

DS has been a hugger/cuddler since the beginning. He's always laid his head on my chest/shoulder. I think boys like to snuggle.




ETA- Maybe it's just my boy. :)
