How often do you say "I love you"

To your LO?

I try to at least once a day. My parents were good parents, but didn't really say it. Now when they do, it feels really awkward. I don't want that to happen with us...

    This exactly...I haven't heard my mom or dad say "I love you" to me in at least 15 years!  I tell Max at least 3 times a day (wake up in the morning, drop off at daycare, and at bedtime) and more on the weekends (before each nap) .

    I honestly couldn't tell you how many times I say it.  I tell her probably 10 or 15 times a day.  I can't help myself! lol

    I say it about a million times a day, we'll see as he gets older.  I don't remember my parents saying it much either, but maybe they did when we were really little babies, who knows.  Either way I am sure I'll keep saying it constantly to DS at least until he starts getting embarrassed of me...lol!

    I tell her over and over, all day long. My parents were big on telling us they loved us, my IL's not so much. I've gotten them to say it a lot in the last 3 years. I do love my IL's and I tell them so. It's important to say those words to the people in your life.

    honestly.....hundreds of times a day.  hundreds.

    and every time before i put her to sleep i ask her..."who loves you Piper? " and i name everyone in the family (sometimes i exclude the in laws--so bad of me, i know), and then i say, "but who loves you the most?  that's right, mommy & daddy do--we love you more than anyone will ever love you."

    I tell her at least 5 times per hour.  It just comes out.  Gah!  I had to tell her again while I was typing this.

    Multiple times during the day.  DH and I especially make a habit of saying it to Lo and each other before we leave or go to bed.

    I don't say it with my mom very much and when she says it its weird; my dad and I say it each time we speak/see each other.  My parents are still married, the relationship with my dad is just different than the relationship with my mom.

    More then I can count. My parents weren't big on "I love yous" and I intend to be very different in that respect toward my child.

    I say it alot. Even more when I'm getting ready to leave her for something. I must say it at least 10 times before i walk out the door. My mom, brother & me always used to say i love you before we left the house just incase that was the last thing we told each other. Even when mad at each other we made sure to say it. So I make sure to say it to Raellyn now. :-)

    Several times a day.  My parents always told us that they love us, still do.

    Everyday. I always say it when he wakes up in the morning or after a nap because he's just so darn cute, I can't help it!

    As often as I exhale!!  Seriously, my son is going to hate those words when he gets older!  I can't help it. 

    I can't remember how much my mom told me but my sister doesn't seem to think our Mom was big on "I love you".  I can't say either way but it's not going to stop me from saying it.  I think it's really important.

    All the time!   I don't know an exact number, and it probably varies every day but I just can't help myself when he smiles or laughs or does something sweet!  Even when I am annoyed that he didn't nap as long as I wanted him to, I will walk into his room and just can't help myself from hugging, kissing and saying I love you!
