My daughter is humping her bed to go to sleep. It is very strange and disturbs me a little. Is this normal? We are very careful about what shows she watches, she is not left alone with strangers etc. She is 2.5 years old. Has anyone else's toddler done this?

Yes my oldest did that.  She would hump a lot of things actually.  She grew out of it.  She is 7 now.

Your children are beautiful. Thanks. Its just a little disturbing you know? Parents always become afraid of inappropriate touching, etc. God to know it isn't just my little one.

It's a typical, healthy, normal stage kids @the 2.5/3 go through. They are learning about their bodies and what feels good its nothing sexual just them exploring.They grow out of it but they haven't learned privacy yet.:)

Yes, it's normal. It is mastabatory, but not sexual. She's discovering her body and this feels good. Perfectly normal, just please, no punishment. Just remind her that it's fine but to continue to keep it private.... In her bedroom , with the door closed.

Is this your first child ? This is not anything to make you uncomfortable, and do not inadvertently make her feel
It's wrong.
It's most likely nothing she watched, heard, saw or had done to her. This is exploration, and face it, if it feels good , as mammals , we're gonna do it. Just roll with it.

My 21 month old man handles herself down there with every diaper change. She digs her fingers everywhere (outside only) and she smacks it all the time. She takes her diaper off often to do this too. It is disturbing but not uncommon and more normal than what most think cause many are ti ashamed to admit it. Your little one will most likely grow out of it with a little time :)

I agree. I did this as a child, but when I would get cought I would get into trouble. As I got older, and realized what it was I was doing I never wanted to start having sex because I felt for the longest time it was wrong.

I knew a little girl that did that and I wandered myself if it was normal. My kids didn't do that. I would ask my Ped. just to be sure.

I would think it would be normal.

Completely natural. I had a 2 year old in daycare that would do this with her stuffed animals at nap time. Everyone masturbates, even infants can become aroused. My kids were never exactly humpers, but my daughter went through a "touching" phase from about 2-4. The only reason to worry, would be if she were doing it excessively to the point where she stops focusing on other interests.
