Is this natural?? adult content

My 2 yr old would be touching herself when she would be in the tub, sometimes thru the diaper ect......Is this a normal thing? I was molested when I was real young, so this is kinda making me nervous, I really don't think my DH is doing anything, but my past record leaves me a bit skittish. Thank you

  • It is perfectly natural to explore her body. That's why god made her arms that long.

  • Totally natural. Girls AND boys do it, especially at that age. It's part of them learning about themselves. No worries, momma - I'm sure your guy would never do anything like that. =]

  • yep, its natural. i used to tell my little ones "your the only ones allowed to touch your business" as i bathed them and had them wash their privates. lays the ground work for them to know some areas are theirs only.

  • It's natural for them to explore their bodies with their hands. And it does feel good.

  • It's okay Mama. It's a perfectly normal part of development. They're just exploring something "new".

  • All my kids did it. My youngest won't keep his hands off his except for when his diapers on. In the tub it's a play toy. I get tickled at him. So easy mama. Alls well with your dd.

  • Like these guys said, totally normal. In the tub is when she has access, and it's more about curiosity than anything. Plus, it feels good. Just teach her that it's something to do in private, ALONE, and to tell you if anyone else touches her there (of course, if she's still in diapers, that one can be tough). I can understand your fears, though. There's a lot of molestation that's happened in my family, and I can be super paranoid!
