Do you think its wrong for a child to pretent to breastfeed?

When my daughter plays with her babies she pretends to nurse. She does not see breast any other way but has a way of feeding a baby, she knows about bottles (shes 6) but says "My baby doesn't need a bottle". Is it wrong?

  • i think its fine if anyone stares or looks at you crazy then they Oviously dont know THATS WHAT THEYRE FOR LOL
    even though shes six i wouldnt worry she wont be playing with dolls very much longer anyway and hopefully when she does finally have a baby she will still feel the way she does now
    hope this helps =]

  • no, shes just pretending to be mommy. theres nothing wrong w/it, if you had bottle fed all the time than she would pretend to use a bottle. my daughter does both

  • I dont think so. My little girl also 6 told me tonight that she has twins. She said when they both are hungry and crying I put them on my lap. Then I have to breastfeed one and bottle feed the other one.I just laughed.

  • Why on earth would it be wrong? If you don't want her to do it, then tell her so...but "wrong"? No.

    If she does it in public be prepared for stares and comments, know there will be some.
