  • Its normal, the boob feeling is a comfort thing and when you stop him/her they get upset cause they don't see it as doing something wrong by touching personal areas, you can try by softly saying no these are mommies it makes it easier

  • I would try to put a stop to it- maybe move his hand to your arm?? I don't think it's a big deal now but it could get inappropriate as he gets older.

  • he or she is just exploring the body. maybe you can explain it more to him or her. Do you shower with him or her? maybe just start explining the body to him or her.... normal yes, weird or inaproperaite, no
    its your child, they need to lear and you are their teacher, it isnt weird at all
