Name changed for this as I am quite embarrassed really.
So not sure where to start..
My DD started “humping” her blanket when she was around 3, we just ignored it and it seemed to have stopped. Now she’s 5yo and started again, a lot! Not quite sure what to do as she’s said it “feels nice” is this normal? What do i say? Ahhh not sure how to handle this situation.

It's normal. Don't worry about it, leave her to it and don't make it a big deal.

Omg I used to do this blush I cringe now but yeah at the time I just knew it was something that felt nice, there wasn't anything sexual in it as i didn't know what that was. It was many years before i clicked the two things together, but maybe just make sure she knows it's ok in private but not something to do out and about?

Thankyou both! @ZigZagIntoTheBlue I have already said that too her it seems she’s not doing it as much but I think it also helps her get to sleep. Hoping she just grows out of it and doesn’t do it at anyone’s house 🙈
