My daughter is self comforting (humping)- HELP!

My daughter is 16-months-old and for many months now she has been "humping" the floor. We have a very hard time getting her to stop and it's more than frustrating. My husband and I have spoken with our pediatrician who says it's a normal developmental thing for girls, we can ignore it or divert her attention some way, but not to draw attention to it by scolding her for doing it. My 3-year-old son wants more attention than he's getting, but as of late it seems that every minute or two we're trying to get my daughter to stop humping the floor! How long does this normally last in children, and is there any way that we can stop this behavior for good. (we find she does it most when she has ear infections, is teething, tired, or is feeling unwell in general) ANY advice would be very much appreciated!
