Anyone else have a "fondling" issue?

Ok.... weird as it sounds, my 16 month old is still nursing 3 times a day. But when he's not nursing, he's always trying to get his hand down my shirt where he plays with my nipples/breasts. I get that it's a comfort thing, but I wanted to know if anyone else has dealt with it and knows how to make it stop. I've tried "Not nice" and "No no" and removing his hand. I've even started wearing shirts that are hard for him to get his hand down, but he still does it anyway and then it chokes me as well lol. Any tips/ideas?

Hold his hand and don't let him do it. If he persists.... put him down. He'll figure out if he wants to 'fiddle' more or nurse more and adjust his behavior accordingly.



I nursed my 'fiddler' for years. They never quit trying to fiddle, but figure out pretty quickly that Mommy won't tolerate it so they knock it off if they really want to nurse.

It never stops. Keep discouraging it, but my 5 year old made the rounds at Easter and touched everyone's breasts there, too. Family doesn't even realize he's doing it, and he had his face right in there! Argh. Adults do it, too. They like boobies.
