She wont leave his privates alone!!!!

i have a 10 month old girl and a 2 year old boy. they have been bathing together since the baby could sit up in the tub unassisted. the past few nights she has taken an extreme interest in my sons penis! i mean, she is bound and determined to grab it. i tell her no and move her away, but she fights her way back. my son will tell her no (mainly because he copies everything i do). i had planned on giving them a bath together for a few more years, but now i dont know. I know its nothing sexual, but its still not okay for her to do this. Should I continue bathing them together and try distracting her, or already start seperate baths? im home alone at night for bath time, so i'm not too sure about leaving either of them alone while bathing the other.

  • Just put swim trunks on him or undies after he is clean and let them play.
    Mine are 6 and 8 and stil play in the tub together with swim suites on.

  • if it were me, then no, I wouldn't...she's just "exploring" and she doesn't have it, so it's different for her. But bath time will become a negative experience if you're always telling her no. Big brother will learn to tell her no too and that's going to be her favorite word :) Just bring brother in the bathroom while you bathe her, then hold her while brother takes a bath.

  • She will get over it. You can take her hand, bring it back to her and say, "Hands to yourself." After a while, she will stop trying. ANd, the swinsuit is an excellent idea!
