    Hi

    My LO is coming up to 6 months old. For the last week or so whenever we change his nappy and he's naked he'll scratch and pinch at his tummy around his belly button and around his groin area.

    He never seems in any discomfort at other times and doesn't try and scratch the area when clothed.

    Does anyone elses LO do this? Any advice???

    Thanks

    Ed does it. I think its just an exploration thing for them, I do joke about it and tell him it'll fall off if he keeps playing with his "boy bits". I would leave him to explore hun or maybe leave his nappy off for half an hour or so just in case he's getting a bit warm and irritated
