really weird question daughter, who is 1, is obsessed with nipples. she tries to touch her dad's and if i have my bra on, she like tries to go under it to touch mine. is that normal? i breastfed, but that stopped at 4 months so i'm confused. we tell her no and redirect her attention, but she doesn't stop lol this is so weird.

  • HAHAHAHA! awesome. i thought only my daughter is weird like that. :D

    in the summer, my dad was in the backyard with our daughter. their were playing and he didnt wear a shirt because it was so damn humid ect. Well out of the blue my daughter started to play with his nipples. Well she actually pinched them. lol

    My dad told her that those are not the radio buttons. She also tried to play with my nipples once and her daddys. I think it was just a phase. She stopped doing it after a couple weeks.

  • My 1 year old daughter does the same thing ....actually both of mine have done it. My youngest who I am now weaning started even trying to latch on to my husband. It use to freak him right out. See ...we are the ones who put the "sexual" aspect on it them its just another part of mommy or daddy. Its completely normal. Dont worry she will grow out of it. .I just redirect their attention and dont make a deal about it because then it will become a game. Ohhh look I got mommy/daddys attention when I did that. If you just brush it off like nothing ....then she will eventually stop.

  • Trust me its normal! I nursed my son till he was 13 months old and he has always touched my husbands and mine nipples lol. There just interested that all. My son is now 21 months old and when I dont have a shirt on he likes to touch and lay up against my breast. Its a comfort thing for him though.

  • I agree it's normal and don't make a big deal out of it. Don't worry ... she'll move on to other assorted weirdness - like kissing your bare butt if she can catch it.
