my dd, 28 months, has a thing about my boobs (still!) and if she sees me undressed, she often asks if she can pat or kiss my breasts. She was breastfed until 18 months and probably remembers it. A friend of mine has recently had a new baby and I think seeing the new babe being b/fed has reminded my dd.
I'm not sure how to respond. For a while I let her have a quick pat, but I don't think I should let her pretend to latch on. So I have been saying 'you're a big girl now, big girls don't need their mummy's boobs!'
Am I being repressive or just sensible? Does this happen to other people?

my ds is 21mths and loves boobs. IF he sees them he has to touch them and tell u they r boobs etc. To be honest i dont put him off but dont encourage him either so let him have a pat etc but then quickly continue with getting dressed. I wouldnt let her latch on maybe saying only babies get milk from boobs? its normal to find it interesting but i think her trying to kiss in attempt to get milk could be starting something u dont want to.

DS2 still does this, he's 4!! He's obsessed even when they're covered up. His nursery teachers took to wearing polo necks with long, tight arms when he was around. We're trying hard to put him off it, he does it to other people he likes too, most embarrassingly a delightful farmer whose farm we went round!! He's got a bit better in the last 6 months, but it's worse when he's tired or poorly. But we live in hope that it will end, my friend's DS has just stopped doing this and he's 6.5!!
