I wouldn't worry too much about it. Just treat it as a child's obsession. It might be something left over from the womb. Your stomach sounds may be comforting. You can let her get her fill of your stomach in private, or you can make your stomach unavailable to her. Scold her when she does it to your friends. But with you just decide which way you will go. Private or not at all. If she does it enough with you, I am sure she will out grow it. But it might be good to indulge her. It may be a security thing. These are just some things to consider. You make the call.
Also children that have been breastfed often want to touch Mommies breasts /tummies I think it is a comfort thing ,I have seen this happen in public where little children of 2-3 years old want to touch Mom even in public. My opinion is not to encourage it in public but also its part of love and bonding, I dont see any wrong at home, she loves you thats all ....
Thanks....Thats what I was thinking is that its some sort of security thing especially since I nursed her but I wasnt sure because none of my friends nursed their children so Im alone on this behavoir LOL. It can get annoying at times especially when shes pushing on it like shes tryin to knead dough LOL but I dont mind when she wants to lay on it. I just wanted to know if this was unusual or if others have dealt with something similur with their toddler :)
My answer is yes particulary as you breast fed, whats not to love about bosoms especially for a small child, you could give her some reminder that it could hurt if she pummels you too hard,I think you will find as she gets older it will lessen ,without pushing her away you could get up after a short time and busy your self so its only for a little while that she does this thereby not overly encouraging it,.I have always believed that families touching each other /hugging /holding hands is a happy and bonding thing ,
Ok my grandson just turned 5 and has always loved bellies. He likes to put his belly or head on his cousins bellies. Sometimes totally undressed sometimes not. Is this also normal
My daughter has the need to sleep on my belly every time she's going to sleep and if I try to refuse because I'm sleepy and I can't sleep on my back she flipps out I never nursed and I don't understand why she does this HELP!!!!!
My 3 year old does the same thing he will pull up my shirt so he can lay his head on my stomach, I did not breast feed, but I think its a comfort thing, they remember the sounds of being in the womb, I think it relaxes him
My son is 4 and still does this!! As I write those he is putting his head inside my shirt rubbing hit face back and forth!!! I don’t allow him to do this to anyone else and I do not allow him to do it in public!!! In the last year I’ve gotten more strict about it like only allowing him to rub my stomach on MY terms instead of all the time whenever he wanted!!! Since I’ve done this it is now only a few times a day like if I’m laying down or he comes to ask a question and it’s very brief!! I nursed him until he was almost 2 and agree it’s a comfort thing and is essential for bonding!!!
My 2.5 year old just started doing this a few months ago. Same with the lifting shirt up. It prompted me to search as she was trying to get her whole body up my shirt lol
My just turned 5 year old as if almost by accident discovered my belly about a month ago and has been obsessed with it ever since. He was born in emergency c section scenario and didn’t get any skin on skin time on that first week due to being in a humidicrib. And I couldn’t produce enough milk to breastfeed and found out I have breast hyperplasia. So 5 years down the track it’s been a weird, confusing time. But I put it down to comfort.
I'm glad I'm not alone on this! My son is 2 and he is OBSESSED with my tummy ! He does the same thing lifts up my shirt so he can lay his head on it and sometimes pulls his shirt up to do belly to belly. I just let him figured its comfort for him
My 5 1/2 son, who I wouldn’t call a typical kid, does this all the time. He’s doing now. He pokes it, squeezes it, blows raspberries, rubs his face back and forth in it, smells it (he’s very into the way things smell) yells out “Belly! Belly!” This has been going on since probably 3? There’s no end in sight. I try to keep it short and let him know it bothers me, but he is relentless. I would put my belly on his list of top 5 favorite things ever. Sometimes I wonder if I should let him do it or cut him off completely. I think I tried to cut him off and it was one of the fights that wasn’t worth it. If the belly thing is my biggest issue with him then I’m doing ok. :)
