My older daughter who is almost four has started to pretend to breastfeed he baby. She likes to borrow my nursing cover and "breastfeed" her baby dolls and bears. She also let's her My Size Barbie breastfeed as well. I am happy that she is growing up seeing breastfeeding as normal since I never saw it as a child. However some people don't think it's appropriate. What do you think?

My daughter did that when her little brother was born too. I thought it was adorable and encouraged it.

i didn't BF (technically I did with ODD, but it only lasted a couple weeks) and I'd still be fine with my DDs doing this, even in public.
