13m old trying to latch on to other people

(5 Posts)

My dd stopped a year ago and is still twiddling and asking if she can have booby again. She's almost 4.

just worried i have created a boob fondler lol!
ye still feeding tho she seems to get more comfort out of twiddling rather than feeding.
my dh now has a complex that he has moobs!!

normal. once you find out where the food is, don't you try to get some more.

twiddling is normal behaviour. daughter called it 'making a baba' ie getting the milk ready to flow.

it really is absolutely normal and quite amusing. don't worry about it at all. globally recognised as normal baby behaviour.

well done on breastfeeding! i take it you are breastfeeding...or...grin

is this just a phase?? will it pass??
dd keeps trying to latch on to other people. like dh. who is utterly horrified lol!!!if he picks her up and he has no top on or vest she tries to suckle.
constantly has her hand down my top/dh top twiddling his nipples or my.mum or mil!!!
why is she doing this?? if i offer to feed her she suckles for a second then loses interest.
her nursery worker has commented dd does it to her!!!!
