Scratching during diaper change

I wasn't sure if any other babies do this, but my 11 mo dd claws at her bottom when she has a diaper change. She's been doing it since birth (maybe not birth, but it seems like it). We asked the ped about it, and he said not to worry about it, doesn't seem to be yeast etC. It wouldn't bother me except she really grabs at the skin and leaves terrible looking scratch marks. I've done some searching around and haven't seen anything indicating this is common, though my mom says my sister and I did the same sort of thing when we were babies... she thought it was the cool air hitting a damp bottom.

Do any other babies do this? Any suggestions/ advice-- I currently try to keep her nails cut short, and give her a toy at changing time, but sometimes that doesn't work either.

Mine doesn't scratch at her bottom but she's in LOVE with her "nice one".

All I can suggest is having the dipe ready ASAP.

Yep, DD is pretty rough w/ herself "down there" (she hasn't left any scratches yet, but she makes me cringe - doesn't that hurt? )

Anyway, she's at it anytime she's nekky - bath time, too. I think it's normal, so I haven't worried about it yet.

Yeah, I guess I just didn't know if any other babies did this... she did it during bathtime for a while but doesn't anymore.. Hopefully she'll outgrow it
