is this normal?

I have a 3 year old girl who is very curious about her "private part" I was wondering if it is normal for her to try to stick things in there, recently it was a dime, but pretty much anything she gets ahold of that is small enough she tries to stick in there. Should i be worried or is this normal? Please help! im a first time mom.

  • My daughter is 2 1/2 and does this too. I was worried for a while, but asked around a lot and also asked her Dr recently too, and have had nothing but people saying it is normal.
