Tickling babies?

Is it bad?

Would it be considered torture?

  • LOL well...

    My mom was tickled by siblings and considered it torture. That's how they played with each other. So, when I was born, she refused to tickle me and refused to let anyone else. She is severely ticklish and I am not ticklish AT ALL. So, I assume it's from never being tickled. I made sure to tickle my son at least occasionally...he is ticklish now. I wish I was a little ticklish.

  • No its not bad as long as you stop when they want you to stop and as long as you don't do it more than a few seconds. Remember they are more sensitive.
