Just thought I'd share a funny story.
DH came home from work abroad with a lovely white plastic robot for DD (3yo). Its a very exciting one which walks and makes noises etc. She took it to bed with her last night. Just before settling down she said the robot was sad. "I'll just feed it with my breast" she said, pulled up her pyjama top and pushed the robot onto her tummy. After a moment she pulled him away and said "it's finished, it feels happy now" and the two of them settled down to sleep.
Just shows how little ones copy the behaviour they see, DD's little brother has been practically glued to my breast for nearly 8 months. grin
Anyone else got any more cute stories ? smile (just for a feel-good factor, i'm recovering from flu)

That fab! I've got a photo of DD1 breast feeding her rag dolly she looks so proud!.

It's wonderful that it becomes part of their imitative play. Some things in our house are clearly not " normal" though as DS looked at a friend as if she was completely loopy when she as " ironing" at toddlers. I do suspect it maybe the first time he'd seen it happen (oopsy!!! )

Ahhh! That's lovely.

My DDs ask who's visiting if they see the Hoover blush

My dsd (5) does this often and not just at home with her "babies". She will announce, quite loudly and very proudly, baby needs a breastfeed, and hoik up her dress/top whilst I do this face -> hmm
