… which won’t give you a stiff neck or numb arm.

1 THE SPOON

How: You’re both on your sides, one per­son curled around the other. If you’re the outer spoon, you can wrap your leg around your part­ner for max­i­mum com­fort.

Why we like it: This po­si­tion cre­ates a bliss­fully warm, af­fec­tion­ate co­coon, whether you’re the in­ner or outer spoon. If this cud­dle is com­ing post­meal and that food baby’s mak­ing you feel awk­ward, try clasp­ing his hands to your chest in­stead – we’re pretty sure he won’t mind.

2 THE HALF SPOON

How: Your man lies on his back, while you curl up against him and rest your head on his chest. His arm can also snake around you, and pull you in for a tighter hug.

Why we like it: Some peo­ple can only get com­fort­able ly­ing on their backs. The Half Spoon lets you do that, while en­joy­ing the com­fort that comes from that feel­ing of nestling. This is also one of the few po­si­tions where you can Netix and chill (lit­er­ally) with­out both of you hav­ing to crane your necks to­wards the tele­vi­sion set.

3 THE VERONA SKELE­TONS

How: You both lie on your side, fac­ing each other, and en­twine your legs around each other’s. Wrap your arms around the up­per half of each other’s bod­ies. Why we like it: If you want loads of eye and body con­tact, – it doesn’t get any more in­ti­mate than this. Fun fact: This po­si­tion got its moniker when two 6,000-year-old skele­tons were found em­brac­ing each other in an Italian city near Verona, home of Romeo and Juliet.

4 THE FOETAL HUG

How: Your man lies on his back, while you lie on top of him. You should be chest-down, face turned side­ways.

Why we like it: For cou­ples with a big height dif­fer­ence, this one nar­rows the gap. Plus, there’s also some­thing com­fort­ing about be­ing pressed up chest to chest. It’s the cud­dle equiv­a­lent of a child’s pose in yoga – easy to get into, and su­per re­lax­ing.

5 THE OT­TERS

How: Both of you lie on your backs and hold hands.

Why we like it: If you’re not one for ex­chang­ing all that body heat, go with this. Like ot­ters that doze off hold­ing paws, you can get com­fort­able and have that re­as­sur­ing phys­i­cal con­nec­tion.
