My 5yo DS has a weird obsession with bellys and bellybuttons I have walked in on him rewinding and replaying parts on cartoons pertaining to those body parts and touching himself and when his father and I try to talk to him about it he freaks out we don't yell or anything like that. I have walked in on him rubbing his belly on my duo maternity tags with pictures of bellys on them, He has drawn pictures of dora and her bellybutton and other weird pictures with bebellybuttons. Is this normal Have any of you experienced this with your child or have you dealt with a different weird obsession with your children? If so what did you do? I am kinda creeped out by this and I just hope he will be normal. I don't know what to do about this.Answer Question

Maybe if he knows more about them, he will be less obsessed? Have you tried telling him what a belly button is? It's a scar left from the umbilical cored after someones born. Everyone has one, they all look a little different, but they are all kind of the same. You might want to buy him a few bellybutton books too. If you make it seem like you think he is acting strange, or wrong then he will feel like a bellybutton is a 'taboo' topic. If you can't be open with him about bellybuttons what are you going to do in a few years when he needs to know about growing up? Try some of these books. Make it a fun thing to learn about, when he learns all he wants to know he will move on to something else.
