My 26 month old sons likes to dig in his diaper and play with his poop when he goes. Do other little boys like to do this also and are there any suggestions as to how to get him to quit?

It is not just boys, it is common for boys and girls. They don't know it is gross. Put overalls on him, or a onesie, just something he can not take off. Give him some play-dough, it might just like the squishy feeling.

My daughter did this multiple times. Try getting the Little Keeper Sleeper!!!

I suppose it's normal to an extent! He is old enough to understand that it's a "no-no" and we don't do that. Maybe it's also time to start potty training!

He usually does it during nap time only. I try and change him right away but I also have a 8 mo old and have to nurse her during nap time. When he poops again during nap, he digs his hands in it and it goes everywhere! It is becoming a daily thing.

My son would take off his diaper and smear the poop wherever he was. Time out worked for me (after a bath of course)...but all kids are different. Its so gross...
