Why Muhammad Sucked on the Tongues of Little Boys (DON'T DO THIS!)

In the hadith, we read about Muhammad sucking on the tongues of little boys, and about Muhammad having little boys suck on his tongue. For instance, in Musnad Ahmad 16245, we read:

“Mua’wiya said: I saw the prophet sucking on the tongue or the lips of Al-Hassan son of Ali, may the prayers of Allah be upon him. For no tongue or lips that the prophet sucked on will be tormented (by hell fire).”

Similarly, in Bukhari’s Al-Adab al-Mufrad 1183 we find:

“It is related that Abu Hurayra said, ‘I never saw al-Hasan without my eyes overflowing with tears. That is because the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, went out one day and I found him in the mosque. He took my hand and I went along with him. He did not speak to me until we reached the market of Banu Qaynuqa. He walked around it and looked. Then he left and I left with him until we reached the mosque. He sat down and wrapped himself in his garment. Then he said, “Where is the little one? Call the little one to me.” Hasan came running and jumped into his lap. Then he put his hand in his beard. Then the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, opened his mouth and put his tongue in his mouth. Then he said, “O Allah, I love him, so love him and the one who loves him!”’” (Link to this Hadith: https://sunnah.com/urn/2211390)

Should we be concerned about such passages? David Wood discusses the issue.
