Is it normal for my 4 year old daughter to hump her blanket frequently throughout the day?

Hello,

We have a 4 year old daughter who in the last couple of weeks has started humping her blanket. She has never done it before, but now she does it all the time. it doesn't matter what she's doing she will just stop and start humping her blanket. She started doing it in the living room and the bathroom floor. We talked to her and explained that it is something you should do in Private. ever since then she does it more often just in private. We also suspect that she took her little brothers blanket out of his crib and used that. we also think she urinated on the blanket. she also wants to wash her hands and change her underwear a few times a day. We are wondering if this behavior is normal and what might be causing it.

It is not unusual for children this age to masturbate. Now, it is also not unusual for them to display more than the usual degree of interest in order and cleanliness. If the level of intensity is unusual, it can indicate anxiety. You an arrange an evaluation with a pediatric mental health/behavioral health clinician to rule out any emotional condition.
