Coddle has two prominent meanings. Each meaning is very different from the other. I never really knew what the word truly meant until I just looked it up right now. I had always thought that it meant to rock something back and forth. In a way I was correct, but not 100%.

Coddle: To treat tenderly; nurse or tend indulgently; pamper: to coddle children when they're sick.

Coddle: To cook (eggs, fruit, etc.) in water that is just below the boiling point; cook gently.

Both forms of coddling are quite appealing... although as much as I love to eat I think I like the second meaning best...



  1. I just learned a new word.I only knew about cuddle not coddle.

    haha, thanks for the info...

  2. You should coddle your children, but never coddle them, 'cause that would be horribly wrong.

  3. @ Flip... very clever play on words...
