Do your older children pretend to breastfeed?

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 apropriate. What do you think?

My 18 month old BFs his baby dolls. My 5 year old doesn't play with her dolls too often.

My daughter was 4 when her twin brothers were born and she doesn't really play with dolls, so she didn't. However, one of my twins loved nursing his 2 elmos LOL 

Ha, I found the picture!
