Is it normal? And if so, any tips to ensure she doesn’t hurt herself?09/06/2019 at 8:11 pm #26758 Steven OsmanParticipantShe will likely hurt herself slightly but that’s a way she will learn to stop doing it (in my opinion of course).09/06/2019 at 8:38 pm #26768 Gavin WatsonParticipantIts perfectly normal behaviour I think. My little girl used to do it but sharp learned not to do it. She now just pokes me in the eye and does a runner giggling her head off the little minx.Author PostsYou must be logged in to reply to this topic.Please Log In or Register to continue.
