I don't know what to tell her

I have a 3 yr old and 8 month old and openly breastfeed. My daughter pretends to "feed" her stuffed animals just like I feed DS.

The other day I was picking her up from school and she takes her stuffed animal and put it in the vicinity of her friend's breast and said, "She's feeding the bunny". I know the little girl's mom doesn't breastfeed so it's not "normal" for her. She didn't react strange or anything. But I felt weird that my daughter was putting it to her friend. Do I say anything? Is it inappropriate?

I don't think I would say anything about breastfeeding specifically, but I WOULD say something about respecting other people's space.  Pretending to BF or not, children need to learn to respect the personal space of other people, ya know.

Id say that we don't touch other people's private parts with toys.
I've been there.

I agree.

Quoting jackiewal10:
