After some advice from mums of boys – my nearly 2 year old constantly plays with his doddle if he has access to it (the only way I can stop this is have him in an all in one suit which makes it hard for toilet training) Any suggestion on how to break a little boys habit?

  • It’s normal, and in fact healthy. Embarrassing as it may be, try not to make too big a deal of it.

  • I think this is a timeless question, its a phase, it will pass luckily for you!

  • It breaks itself eventually, and it does help with foreskin retraction

  • Don’t over react, it seems to be what lots of little boys do. They seem to grow out of it, but even as they get older they do have a special security with the “doodle”. He will grow into a very healthy young man if you just relax.

  • Little boys do find it fascinating especially at bath time, its a phase they go through.

  • How is he going now?

  • Lol, such a typical little boy!

  • some great advice for when i have a boy lol

  • Hope it works out and he just grows out of it.

  • It is normal, as embarrassing as it may be, and I would redirect him to other things. They do grow out of it.

  • How is he going now?

  • not sure what to tell you – hope he will just grow out of it.

  • Try not to make too big a deal out of it. He will loose some interest in it after a while-though it is funny how boys never loose interest in it completely he he.

  • I don’t have boys so good luck

  • We have been told that it is normal and they will grow out of it (do they ever really grow out of it though) and not to make a big deal out of it.
