My daughter used to have this funny habit: every sleeping time, she would finger her bellybutton using her left hand’s pointer finger, while her right hand was busy holding her bottle of milk. Sometimes, even without the milk, she’d still do this. It was a ritual, a sleeping pill.
Some months ago, I realized she wasn’t doing it anymore. Another habit took its place: fingering her elbow.
Last week, I observed that she has a new favorite body part: her right nipple. Yes, my daughter likes touching her right nipple. And she doesn’t necessarily have to be sleepy to want to do it. She does it whenever, wherever.
It's kinda cute but only after the first 10 seconds or so.
