My DD is 4 1/2 and my sister's baby is 6 1/2 mo. old. My daughter loves kissing, hugging, playing with her. She just loves to touch on her! And yes, sometimes she plays with her head and grabs her nose. I tell her to love her gently! When she does it my mom & sister freak out! So when we are all together, all you here is them telling my DD to stop or be gentle. I don't know why but it drives me crazy! They act like the baby is going to break. But I am not one of these mother's that freak out about everything, I try to be laid back, it is better for the kids! Am I the only one that gets annoyed by this?Answer Question

I wouldn't let anyone's kid touch my baby. Even if the baby is breastfed there is the risk of illness. The child can hurt the baby. People should teach their kids to leave babies alone. It's rude for a mother to let her child touch a baby even if it is a relative.

I don't mind at all. We took my 2 month old to DDs daycare picnic to show the little ones. They were loving him. I reminded them to give gentle touches, but all was fine.
