My little boy is 8 months old today, I have a little issue. I refuse to call it a problem.... yet.
If you take his diaper off... he's PLAYING WIFF IT
pulling, tugging, pinching... I have to literally PRY his hands out of the way to fasten the tapes on a new diaper! When you put him in the tub.. there's one hand, under the water, ALL the time. He wont let GO!!!!!
Now I have seven brothers ( I was the only girl ) and my mom says that NONE of my brothers "found" it till they were maybe two or three. This boy is 8 months and he has been doing this for months!
Is it normal to start playing with it this early? Do I ignore this habit? Do I act like it's no big deal?
I don't want to scar him, or make him think that his privates are a no-no....
Do I shun him from this? He's really too young to sit down and talk to him about it, he's not doing it in public.. yet.
Is it bothering him? does it itch, or burn? Are there any physical signs I can look for to see if there is a medical issue? ( I see NOTHING out of the ordinary now)
Why is he tugging non STOP?
