My daughter has just turned ten and still enjoys cuddling up to me while sucking her thumb and holding my breast. This is something she has done since she was tiny and has obviously drastically decreased in occurrence as she grown older. She used to tweak my nipple while she was doing it but at a certain age it made feel uncomfortable so I explained this and she stopped. She now only rests her hand there. Is this okay, I feel that she is growing out of the behaviour and believe it is healthier for her to do it in her own time but I'm not sure I would still feel comfortable in a year or so. What do you think?
