My 19 months girl is obsessed with boobs, she touches mine all the time and pinches my nipples, I wouldn't have a problem but I am breastfeeding my 6 weeks girl so my nipples are sore and sensitive, she is also doing it to her grandma and aunties!!
I have told her to stop but she keeps doing it and sometimes if I am tired I kind of yell at her and I feel guilty cause I know she just does it as a confort thing, please help!!!

Jane is right. You just have to keep putting her hand down and be consistant with it. Or putting her down if you're holding her. Make sure everyone else is on board too.

My kid was never breastfed and he has a fascination with touching them and sticking his hand down my shirt. I'm yet to figure out how to stop him.

I got my son a silk night gown to play with, boobies are soft and they like the softness.

I would suggest getting together with the aunties and the grandma and tell them that from now on every time she does it you tell her "No. We don't touch like that." Then remove her hand and put her down. If all of you do this every time she reaches for your breast she will get the idea that touching anyone like that is not acceptable and results in loss of attention.

It will take a bit of time but not too much if all of you are consistent about saying no and putting her down.

My daughter used to poke mine all the time, they stick out unlike hers which is why I think they are obsessed with them. Maybe you can give her something to play with when she starts doing it? Sounds weird, but maybe a Barbie Doll that has "boobs" for her to mess with? I did this for my daughter, and also didn't make a big deal when she did touch mine. I think the bigger deal I made of it, the more she wanted to do it!
