my six year old is very affectionate and i dont know what I should do about this ive notice this about a year ago but to me it has recently gotten worse she likes to hug and kiss over the last may we found out that we were pregnant and she was gonna be a big sister and it took her a little while to get used to the idea then 2 months ago her dad/ my husband had a stroke and is in coma then in the beginning of this month i had our baby so since then ive notice that her kisses and hugs increased a lot even though it just family mainly me and my newborn im still concerned about it im worried about what gonna go in her little brain i dont turn her away when its me she wants to hug and kiss on but i try to limit it when it comes to the baby cause she recently had a cold i dont want to discourage her if this is innocent but im a little freaked out by it

The girl is scared! Her life has been turned upside down; she has a new baby for competition and her dad is in a coma. Hug and kiss that little girl as much and as often as you can. She is looking to you for strength and security. She needs tons of love and assurance that things are going to be okay.

It's probably innocent, especially if it's mainly with you and the baby and other family. She isn't going up to strangers and kissing hugging them continiuosly so its just her showing affection.

If you don't want her kissing the baby to much due to her being sick just tell her that. Say when you're sick you can't kiss the baby so much, 'cause she might get sick too. Kids understand that type of thing.
