    Depends on the kid - some do very young, some aren't all that interested. My son isn't born yet, but my daughter (2.5) has on a couple of occasions. I've just told her that it's okay to touch herself, but it's a private thing to do. She needs to go to her bedroom if she wants to (cue running to her room, and coming back 30 seconds later when she's found something more interesting). Also I mention that she then needs to wash her hands.

    I know another little girl who was very hands-on from about 1 to 4. Don't know whether she kept it up as she's old enough to understand privacy now :P

    4 boys here ranging from almost 12 to 2.5 I have never 'caught' any of them doing it, but I would hazard a guess that it's just around the corner for #1 in his pre-teen hormonal state (he is physically immature in size etc but mentally quite mature)

    They do 'play' with themself though, naturally. But I don't class that as masturbation

    My DS has done it since he was about 1! Usually when he's watching a movie and distracted. I wouldn't call it masturbation just playing with it.

    Yes they play with it from very early on but it's not masturbation as there's nothing sexual about it

    My 2.5 year old loves his penis. He's been playing with it since about 7 months. He's now worked out that playing with it makes it bigger and he exclaims 'look at the big one!' and proudly shows us his accomplishments. It's not a sexual thing, he's just curious.

    My 2 yr old DS grabs his as soon as his nappy comes off for nappy changes and then plays with it at bath times.

    I don't think masturbation can happen until puberty hits, masturbation is an act. What little boys do before that is just touching and nothing more, it's mindless really, DS always fondles but why wouldn't he? It's just a bit convenient and hanging out there! Lol. It's perfectly normal and I think good for the penis foreskin.
