  • If you don't make a big deal of it, it will pass.

  • MY and My GF were just talking about this.. we both have sons that are 3 and my son likes to stick his hand in my shirt and her son likes to feel her boobs while in the shower lol!~ I tell my son Nope, those are mommies and remove his hand ( he does this almost always when I hold him for any length of time ) My GF tells her son he can't touch or he won't get to shower with her anymore and that they are not FOR him lol!~ my niece went through this for almost a year with her mom too

  • dancer - if its not inappropriate to her, then it is fine for their family and I would still shower with my son if he liked it even an ounce. Different strokes remember..
