  • My two year old twins do this to me from time to time. I don't say anything to them because I don't think there's anything wrong with it.
    Now if they were say 4 or 5 and always trying to touch me then I might have an issue with it.
    I find with many things like that, if you just ignore it/don't react much these things stop on their own.

  • My daughter is 2-1/2 and is doing this too. I think they like seeing our reactions when we tell them to stop. Pretty normal from what I understand.

  • It's normal and little girls do it also. Just move his hand out of your shirt and keep doing that and also keep telling him no or no thank you. It'll stop eventually.

  • Why isn't it okay?
    My BFed daughter LOVES boobies, although it's only mine and her grandmother's she touches. I'm fine with her touching mine, because I am not ashamed of my breasts. It's okay for her to get to know how breasts feel. There is nothing sexual in it.
    Half the fun with her trying to cop a feel of my mom is that my mom puts a stop to it- it's a game, really..
    The words I use in that situation is reinforcing "those are Gram's boobies, for Gram to touch. You can touch your own boobies."

  • Telling a child "it's not okay" isn't going to stop their behaviour because they don't understand WHAT is not okay. You need to explain yourself- in words your child can understand.
    Explain that they are mommy's boobies, for mommy to touch, and redirect him to his own body to touch.

  • I remember my niece being fasinated with my sisters breasts for a good 2 years from 2 to 4 years old - she out grew it.. Its more than likely a phase.
