Our expert says:
Its extremely normal and healthy, and I'd be more worried about a kid who never did thuis, rather than worrying about one who did. But so long as a child understands, as your daughter seems to, that this is a private and not public behaviour, this is fine. Good for her for asking what you were doing in her room ( what WERE you doing there, by the way ? ) and implicitly underlining her right to appropriate privacy. Do leave it alone, and don't try to find her doing it.
Its about discovering some of the things that feel good ( like enjoying a warm bath ) and not explicitly sexual. One does not want to unduly sexualise it nor to teach her inappropriate guilt and worry
