DD turned 3 a couple of months ago and has recently discovered the pleasure of "touching (her) bottom". She isn't doing it a lot and seems to be just doing it in her bed for a little while. She just says it feels nice.
Is this normal?? Of course I've smiled at her when she's told me about it and said that yes it might feel nice. Is she developing a bit too soon? I don't have any recollection of anything like this at this age!
DD (2.3) has her hands almost permanently in her foof if her nappy's off. To the extent that I've delayed trying to potty train her while we've got builders in... Perfectly normal though. All I say to her (in the same tone as I say 'no food in the living room) is that you don't do it in the living room. Or the dining room or the kitchen!
I have 2 dd's both did this constantly when nappy was off from about 18 months, I have told them it's fine to do it but must be in private (now 3 and 5yrs). Found dd2 trying to "insert" a mini Upsy Daisy figure up there the other day while in the bath!
I remember one poster calling it playing the fanjo banjo, that stuck with me for ages. DD occasionally fiddles with her fanny, not too often anymore though. She has never inserted anything herself, but her friend put a handful of pebbles in it. I ended up taking her to the hospital because I was scared I hadn't got them all out.
