Baby Besos: 5 Reasons Snuggles and Kisses are the Best!

My 21-month-old started giving out kisses about a month ago. Every once in a while he walks up to me, his dad, or big sister and gives us a nice beso (kiss) on the cheek or arm. Adorable, right? Who doesn’t love sweet snuggles from a baby? Of course, now we regularly ask him for besos, though he doesn’t always provide them upon request.

Because we love baby kisses so much, I thought it would be fun to ask other moms why they love baby snuggles and kisses. Here’s what they had to say!
