Probably random strange little kid stuff. Definitely raise it to the pediatrician. My almost 2 year old daughter loves to grab her vagina every diaper change and bath. My now 11 year old son, used to do the same to his penis at the same age and had a brief humping phase. It passed when we paid no attention to him doing it.


I worked at a daycare in college and had a few girls that did this. Also, my own daughter has done this while she is falling asleep at times. I spoke to her pediatrician and she said it was normal. She did give a tip, saying if her underwear is tight at all, it will apply pressure, bringing her attention to it more often. So I upped her size of undies (even though they didn't appear to be small) and it stopped almost immediately.


I don’t think kids realizing sensations is weird.


None of my kids have done this, but I have friends who have kids who do it. More girls than boys and not abnormal. You can talk to the ped, but I’m guessing they’ll say it’s totally normal.

I babysat once for a two year old that did this frequently. My friend is a teacher and said during story time she would have girls who would sit on their shoes and rub back and forth. I think normal. I’m sure pediatrician will have good advice on how to handle.

Totally normal! My son was a stomach sleeper and appeared to hump the bed while falling asleep around 1 year old. It only happened when he was trying to fall asleep and it was also a very brief phase. Lasted no more than 3 months. I never even mentioned it to my ped because a quick google showed me this is very common, so fear not!

There’s nothing sexual about it, so don’t let your mind go there :)

It’s normal, it’s her version of self-soothing. My boy bounces in child pose too when he goes down for a nap. Could be rubbing but could also be bouncing - I saw it as trying to replicate when I would bounce him as a baby to go to sleep.

Totally normal. In fact when my daughter was in pre-school most of the kids (boys and girls) were all doing it during nap time. All the parents were called in for a talk with “Miss Debbie”. She made us sit in the small chairs while she discussed this with us . Frankly being talked to by a little older woman on the natural acts of self pleasure was far weirder than my daughter humping her blanket.

My 10 month old daycare going baby got an ear infection for the 3rd time!!

Also, anyone bought a otoscope to check ears often?

Hey all,

I have a two week old baby who was born 8 lbs 15 oz.

She has really increased her feeding recently - she's not full unless she has at least four ounces every three hours or less. I can't keep up and it seems like a lot for a two week old, even a big one.

I'm supplementing with formula, but is this normal at all? My mom and MIL have both suggested my milk is weak, but wondering if there's another reasonable explanation.


Feel so bad for the wailing kid’s mom. She is getting the stares. The baby has not stopped crying on this 2.5 hours. Glad we are landing in 20.

My husband and I agreed to have two kids before we got married. But after one, I’m not sure I want two anymore. I might be done.
