Re: Am I the only one who doesn't think it's a big deal?
I don't think there's anything wrong with a 3 (or 4, 5, 6, 7 or older) year old pretending to nurse a doll. Acting like it's not appropriate gives the message that nursing is dirty. (However, if pretend nursing involved removing or lifting up her shirt in public, I would tell my DD that she had to keep her shirt on to "nurse" her baby when we weren't home.)
