Congratulations! By when are you planning for a baby?
Congratulations! How many weeks are you?
I have a
Hi Mom,Don't force him or scold him for doing this instead divert his mind whenever you found him doing this. Keep him covered always never leave him without pant or underwear except giving him bathe. Don't worry he get rid off thus habit soon.asha chaudhry Priya Sood Charu Sareen Gujjal any suggestions please?
I agree with Sheeba. Kids don't know anything. They are just exploring their parts. They will be touching one part or the other.. But this we may feel odd. Cover and gently say.. it's not good. Don't ever laugh or may fun.
Baby Chakra any mom's you can tag who have boys and can suggest
Even My son does that.... the best solution is covering him and saying gently not to do...
i tried everything including beating him
when no one is near him he jst remove pant nd carry on
now he is suffering frm pain nd rashes :(
thnx sheeba roopashree nd veda
I usually say him cheeee ....all will say shame shame.....
hi all baby boys do this - they are just discovering their body! dont scold or punish or be harsh. it will have a negative impact. just keep pvt parts covered so he doesnt get a chance and gently explain he will hurt himself. tagging moms with boys!

It's natural. They explore their body. Simply distract him when he does so.
this is a wonderful thread and I'm glad it's come up. In one of the seminars k attended (a great one organised by my son's school) it was shared with us by an expert that boys as young as 1 year can have an erection. it has nothing to do with a sexual thought, but is an involuntary reaction of the body (of course thats what it is meant to do right!) the best way forward is to teach your boy that these reactions are normal. sure he can touch it, sure he can clean it just like he would clean the rest of his body and in AGE APPROPRIATE language explain to him why it's private and should be done in the privacy of the bathroom. Please don't shun him or call it dirty because it isn't. It would be better you talk to him rather than when he asks questions he asks someone else.
baby don't know about private parts... aap use jitna mana karegi utna use explore karne ki curiosity badhegi... when baby plays with hands or finger kya ap mana karti h nhi na?? then it will be difficult for him to understand your you saying no..
just distract the baby mind in a way that he even don't understand that you are stopping him to touch.. give him new toys..
