why does my 2.5 year old keep pinches my boobs???

She will be 2.5 next month she only nursed 2 weeks of her life because I was in and out of emergency rooms when she was born and I didn't have enough milk to pump yet so I dried up anyway, for the past 2-3 weeks she has been wanting nothing but held from either mommy or daddy, but mostly mommy and when I am holding her she either plays with them or pinches them the more I tell her to stop the more she will laugh about it and do it. I don't laugh when I tell her no I simply pull her and away from my breasts and tell her NO she laughs and goes back to my boob. She does it in front of people to and is embarrassing. How do I get her to stop? Why does she keep doing it?

  • I think it's really normal. Boobs are a pretty fascinating thing. ; )

    Just be very calm about it. Brush her away every time she does it immediately and tell her "We don't play with mommy's boobs" or whatever you call them to her. Try avoiding big reactions because she'll probably find it funny.

    My 2 1/2 year old DS is in love with my belly button. He reaches up my shirts and dresses to feel it. It can be really awkward/silly, but I try really hard to play it down. He is slowly getting over it. He just thinks belly buttons are really cool!

  • Distraction, I don't think it is adnormal, they don't know what the heck it is.

    They just think soft and squishy. It is fun to them, in a harmless way.

    Kind of distract her, say oh wow look, or get a plush toy. Distraction is the best way.

  • She likes getting a reaction out of you.

    I would try, distracting her and act as if she is not doing it. Either move or gently push her away and do something else.

    Dont tell her no or stop...she likes making you react.
