Someone Found Her Vagina

Isabella found her lady bits.  I thought I would be cool about this.  I thought I'd be all, "it's your body, feel free to explore it." but it freaks me out.  It all started one night when she was being a pill about me putting on her diaper after the bath.  So I told her she could help by putting on her diaper cream.  Then she starts giggling uncontrollably and saying, "that tickles."  Now whenever she's naked she wants to touch her vag.

I know it's natural and she's just curious about her body but O...M...G it makes me so uncomfortable.  I don't want to freak her out, but O...M...G I am super freaked out by it.  So I need you to talk me off the ledge and tell me that my daughter is not going to be some vagina rubbing sex freak when she grows up.

She may not be a vagina rubbing sex freak but she will be suuuuper embarrassed if she ever reads this post and may hate you for it. She may run away from home, get some tattoos, realize she has no money and turn into a prostitute... so I'm not sure which one is worse.

But really. No worries. I'm sure it's normal... don't freak out. You knew this day would come sooner or later. :)

Unless she gave herself an internal she discovered her vulva, not her vagina :)

LOL! Don't freak out. It's just new to her. I'm sure she'll get bored of it after a while and she'll forget all about it.

Now if only I can my kid to stop playing with his peen during bathtime. LOL. ;)

My DD is 6 and well we have lot's of interesting conversations. It's natural & they all do it. But yea sometimes it just makes you uncomfortable & not really sure what to do about it.

To her, it's just like discovering any other part of her body. Her toes, her hair, her vagina. Don't worry. She doesn't understand that it's a sex organ right now. Just explain to her, when she is old enough to understand, that it is a private place only for her and we don't touch it around other people and we don't show it to other people or let other people touch it and to tell mommy or daddy if it ever does happen (God forbid). She's just exploring another body part. Be careful not to make her feel ashamed about it!

My almost 3 year old enjoys it too! At first, a freaked. My husband still does a little. Now, I just tell her to stop and that she can get an infection with dirty fingers. Then we go into what an infection is. Needless to say, she does it less now.
