Our Word for today is Cosset. This word can serve as a verb or a noun and we are going to tell you all about it in today’s post.

Cosset as a verb means to care for and protect in an overindulgent way. That’s pretty much explanatory right?

Look at these examples;

“All her life, she’d been cosseted by her family”
“If you keep cosseting your daughter she will end up over-dependent.” 
 
The following words can be used in place of the word: baby, coddle, indulge pet, nanny, nursemaid, overindulge, pamper, spoil.
 
As a noun, Cosset means a lamb brought up without its dam. It can also be used to describe any pet.
 
We would love to see what sentences you can make with this word.
