Don't be. It's one of the few things she knows and to her it is completely normal. You can tell her that when she grows up she can feed her babies like that also.
Don't be alarmed, or disturbed. She's just copying you. And, I'm sure it was a very comforting experience for her - she is trying to share it. And, yep, I am a mom. :)
She does sound like a sweetheart. :) She must have a really great mom.
Don't make a big deal of it, and it will pass. Just don't let her do it in public, or there will be people who WILL make a big deal of it. She is trying to share the comfort with her toys that you gave her. She remembers it as a comfort. Not a bad thing, I'd say.
grantmepeaceplease, hit the nail on the head!
why would you be disturbed?
meh, those who think it's bad are lame.
Of course not. It's perfectly natural. Would you be alarmed by her pretending to bottle feed?
Breast feeding is wonderful and natural and decent, at least as much as mom and apple pie! My earliest memory is of wanting to be a mommy, just like my warm, loving, wonderful mother. <br />
Please do not be alarmed! I bet your daughter becomes a wonderful, loving mother herself. Nothing better to be!
Just wait til she tries this with the cat. Be ready with that video camera -- that money from funniest home videos will be yours in no time!
Your daughter is feeding her animals...bless her she wouldnt know any other way. Try buying her some bottles to feed her toys with...show her a different way :)
Your welcome, im pleased i did :)
My daughter does the same thing.. but she's breastfeed her baby doll
The funniest thing is that my son, when he was four, tried to breastfeed his baby sisters doll. (His father had a fit, but that's part of the reason why we are divorced now! Male Chauvinists!) <br />
My son was with me all the time and was copying what he saw his mom do. And I breast fed all my children. (I have three, full grown now, and each is making me a grandmother) <br />
Breastfeeding is natural, normal and healthier for your child than formula. I breastfed my children for at least a year and a half each. Mothers from other countries breastfeed their children much longer than we do here and it is not considered a problem. Only America seems to consider breasts as dangerous ob<x>jects which must be hidden and only used during sex.<br />
Enjoy your baby and your daughters innocence...they are so sweet and delightful at that age. Don't let anyone scare you into doing anything that you don't feel is the best for your children. Breast is Best and Natural is Normal!
no way you shouldn't be alarmed. it could cue your child to consider her breasts and their natural function as inappropriate when it shouldn't be like that. humans need to abandon these wretched traditions and superstitions that surround and demonize natural behaviors that facilitate healthy and necessary functions (child rearing). it doesn't make sense to have them ascribed a villainous role nor be allowed to permeate society and culture, having it simply for the sake of having it. its a burden that humanity shouldn't have to shoulder.
(facepalm) some people....
