We checked with the doctor and all is good. She takes baths 3-5 time's a week. But it's so strange to see a girl play with herself.
My wife and I don't do anything in front of kids to even hint on "look at this". So I'm asking if it's normal!?żĄ I know boy's do that , so I gess girls do to, but @ 5? Maybe. 12 ok I'll understand that. But 5?
Ok just to clarify she doesn't do it a lot maybe like 2 times a day, 2-5 minutes.

Im hoping that this will stop, it's a bit imberricing when she does it in public.
She has no problem just digging in. We tell her to wait till she is in bath.

It is said normal. But I first did it when I was 16 years old and I am a male. Strange huh???

Yes it's normal. Some kids do it more than others and some may not do it all. Most doctors will tell you to try not to discourage it but don't encourage it either. To just try and ignore it. Although I'm sure that's hard to do when she does it in public. Lol I remember when I was a kid I had a female cousin that was doing that constantly in school, at home, in public. And growing up in the Bible Belt town that we lived in of course everyone completely freaked out and made a huge deal about it. But she finally stopped and the doctors told her parents that she was fine,she had just discovered her body.

I agree, don't tell her its wrong because it isn't. My 5 yr old does it sometimes too, you just have to learn to go with the flow lol.

Thank you all I feel a bit more at ease now.

Let's hope she will stop before school start.

Just make sure your son doesn't take any baths in front of a female babysitter, because the CaDad creature will report you to the authorities.(And he'll call the school, too!)
