My 25 month old daughter is playing with her poop, help!

Questioner: Krishna

Question:

My 25 month old daughter has been removing her diaper constantly. Additionally, she has been playing with poop, which is highly problematic for obvious reasons. Telling her no sternly has zero effect. What can I do?




Dear Krishna,

Well is sounds like what you are doing is not working. Your 25 month old daughter maybe ready for potty training. However, her playing with her poop is quite normal. You see she doesn't view her poop as something bad, you do.

She is curious about her poop because it comes out of her own body. She is just being curious not bad.

What I would suggest is keeping a close eye on her and when she removes her diaper, get the diaper and clean her up before she has a chance go play with her poop.

Best Wishes!
