I have a 2.5 year old DD and when she was about 20 mo she started stliding down in her high chair and going ridged, she would do the same in her car chair and push chair and rock her legs. I found it really weird and used to tell her off but she would just carry on. I hated when she did that and have no idea why she did it. Eventually it died down but recently I've noticed her doing it in the car chair again and she's doing it more than ever. I get so frustrated with her, I've tried talking to her nicely asking her not to do it and even shouting. NOTHING works. It's got me so worked up that when she's sitting on someone's knee I'm constantly watching and if she even starts to put her legs ridged I tell her to get down before anyone notices. It's embarrassing and really freaks me out why is she doing this? how do I get her to stop?! confused

Ignore, ignore, ignore...my DD still does this sometimes (nearly 4) and we have now told her she can only do this at home and only when we are here not when we have guests as its a private thing...otherwise i completely ignore it-guaranteed with a 2 year old...the more you tell her not to, the more she will do it...

My friends dd did this at similar age and got good advice from her health visitor. Friend's dd was doing this with hands down pants so you are better off than some. It is really really normal and do just ignore. No one else will have a clue what she's doing unless you're drawing attention to it.

I found with my willy fiddling boys that it's much more effective to say 'hands up' than 'stop playing with your willy'.

Thank you, I might mention it to the health visitor. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I knew boys messed with their bits but I've never heard of girls doing anything so I never expected it. I just hope she grows out of it. Thanks for the advice

My 18 month old dd has her hands down there at any given opportunity when her nappies off....

My son dry humped his blanket for best part of a year between 2.5 and 3.5 years... its normal. Try and ignore her...hard I know...
