My son constantly has his hands down his diaper. Is it because he likes the feeling. Is he telling me he's dirty? Any advice would help,

It maybe time to transition him to under pants. I know after waring a sanitary napkin after the third day of my cycle I am ready for it to end. It maybe the texture of the diaper or he is a toddler and he loves to explore. It's normal for him to explore and I know all children don't develop the same. I think it's time to transition to under pants. If he is telling you he is dirty or is dry over night than those are signs that your child is telling you he is ready to potty train. .

Boys come with built in toys and they also like how it feels when they play with it.

It's completely normal and he will learn when he can play and when he can't. Just remind him that he should only do it at home.

They are just curious, my 3 year old daughter tries to do the same thing. They are just starting to realize more about their body so its completely normal especially with boys.
