Breast-Obsessed: Is Your Toddler?


baby bottle nipplesA mom in the Toddler Moms group (must join group to join discussions) has an almost-2-year old son who's infatuated with her breasts.

Touching, holding, brushing, tugging, rubbing, squeezing, patting. Do your breasts need a restraining order against your toddler?

Both my boys have gone through a stage of being fairly interested in my breasts (lots of looking, pointing, and reaching toward); however, neither have gotten super obsessed about them (thank God!). And yes, both were breastfed (my first for 15 months, one for 9 months).

I was laughing the other morning when my 3-year old was walking around with my bra saying, "These are mommy's bress...these are mommy's bress..." At least, he knows the proper word for them.

If your tot likes to manhandle your mammaries, don't worry, mamas. Mrs. Manners assured us awhile back that breast obsession is normal for toddlers. Of course, normal doesn't mean without nuisance. LOL.

Is your toddler breast obsessed? Since I only have sons, I'm also curious if girl toddlers get grabby too?

My son likes to inform me that I have boobs. *pointing* "This is your boob, mom....this is your boob". I knew that already :P

My 2 year old son just started that too.  I feel embarrassed about him sticking his hands in my shirts in public.

My 2yr. old daughter, also likes to stick things down my cleavage. She refer's to my breasts as the "baby's", since i'm bf my 3mo. old son. Every once in a while she'll stick her hand down my shirt too, so I don't think it's just a boy thing. Oh, and she'll try to hold on to it to take a nap, instead of a blankie or stuffed animal  lol.

I have a three year old daughter and she breast feed until she was two.  She calls them night-nights.  She still wants to hold them if she is really tired or not feeling well, so it is not just a boy thing.  I think it is a comfort thing-her doctor has informed me that it is okay, she is still a baby.

My three year old likes to pretend he's pumping. He hasn't quite caught on about gender differences yet. LOL

Just last night my son squeezed my boobs and said "Your booties!" That is what he calls them. I just remind him he can't run around squeezing mommies boobies! I think he is just interested in all the different body parts now because this morning he asked if he could touch my butt!
