You all mention frequently how i shouldnt say no when my baby starts to play with his penis during diaper changes. Redirection by giving him a toy isnt working any more so Im wondering how do i get him to stop if i cant say no. I tried holding his hands back but i need both my hands because he doesnt sit still at all



Its the first thing he grabs for when his diaper is off

Because when in a diaper with poop it gets covered with poop so he grabs it with his hand and plays in the poop and then when i try to wipe off his hands he flails around and wipes it on everything.Quoting Lauriemom: Why can't you just let him play with his penis?

Just finish finish changing his diaper, he'll obviously stop when his diaper and clothes are back on.

I might be a weirdo, but I let my 15 mo flick his penis around for a second. I talk to him about it like I would any other body part. I don't make it weird or anything, I just tell him that's his penis and then put his diaper back on.

I don't see the big deal.. .
DS playing with his penis actually led me to find an issue (which thankfully turned out to be nothing)

This. Just clean him up and put his diaper on without even paying it any mind.

You can say "no don't play with your poop". Playing with yourself and playing with poop are two different things.

Its his penis. Let him check it out. 

its no different than when he found his toes, tongue, fingers, etc.

Oooh, what fun, lol.
I am sorry, I have no advice. I see no reason not to tell him no when he is touching poop.
