My mom always makes a point of exclaiming over how beautiful my daughter was. It made me uncomfortable, because I don't remember her going on so about my son. I thought about talking to her about it, but then I had a realization: she told me I was beautiful my whole life and I am an extremely confidant person with no body issues. Certainly I was never made to feel my beauty had anything to with my self worth or that it was something I had to cultivate or work hard to maintain. Being confident in my looks, especially as a woman, really has been a gift, so I've decided if The Bubbe wants to tell her granddaughter how beautiful she is all the time, there is really no harm.
