That kind of behavior is TOTALLY normal for a 2 year old. When my daughter was that age we just made a rule that she could only touch like that in her bedroom or during bath time. We didn't make a big deal out of it and she eventually out grew doing it. :)

When my daughter was 14 (about 3 years ago) we went on a mother daughter 10 day camping trip and she woke me in the middle of the night because she was shaking and moaning. I was on my side facing her and she was in her sleeping bag on her side with her back to me. Then she rolled to her back and bent her knees and spread her legs which made her sleeping bag open and I could see she was clothed but she had one hand in her shorts then she put the other up her shirt. I immediately knew what she was doing so I sat up and she stopped and got VERY embarrassed. I told her it's ok that EVERYONE masterbates, even me, but she needed to do it when no one was there. She told me she sleeps beter after she does it so she does it everynight. We agreed she would go to "bed" 30 minutes before me so she could have her time then I would go into the tent to sleep. That worked out fine.

It's normal. I've never actually seen my daughter masturbate, but I'm pretty positive she does. I guess you could talk to her about it. But there isn't really much to talk about.. you'd just make her feel uncomfortable and awkward around you.

She'll eventually grow out of it, I mean she's only 2! When she's older you guys will just make a big joke about what she was doing. She's younger she has no idea what she's doing, so really you shouldn't make a big deal out of it until your older.

AH well....it wasn't me that walked in on our girl but her poor father. You should have seen the look on his face! Poor man. I had to sit him in a chair. Don't make a big deal out of it. Just set boundaries...like behind the shut door of their bedroom. We have rule in my house..KNOCK and wait to be told its ok to come in.

My best friend's son started masturbating when he was very young. She was horrified and went straight to the pediatrician for guidance. She thought that perhaps he was doing it because he had been molested, however, the doctor told her it's normal for some kids to be curious and even at a young age to masturbate. He said they had to be careful about saying that it was wrong and he should not be doing it because it would cause issues when he got older. Talk to your pediatrician and go from there.
