A couple of days ago, my son and I were sitting on the couch, watching his favorite cartoon, Backyardigans. He loves it and I must admit that I like it too.
My husband was cooking breakfast for us and we were having a good time. All of a sudden, my son touches my breast.
I looked at him and he pointed at it. I quickly told him, “No, no baby. No touch.”
Ten minutes later, he pointed at my breast again.
Looks like my little toddler is starting to notice that Mommy has a little extra cushion up top.
He wasn’t a breast fed baby, but he has always liked to be around women that have large breasts. His favorite teacher in daycare had large breasts and he would love for her to rock him to sleep.
I have been teaching him parts of the body. You know, the simple ones.
Eyes, nose, ears, mouth, feet, toes.
Breasts were definitely not covered in our teaching lessons.
Have you experienced this with your toddler? If so, how did you deal with it?
Did you freak out like me, or did you calmly explain to him the birds and the bees on his level?
