So I have a four year old little girl, and when she was a baby and I changed her diapers I would always wipe her front to back, and only involve getting in the folds and crevices if she had pooped or something. Now that she is getting older... I feel awkward washing her private parts down there. I kind of just brush over the front with a wash cloth, then do her bum with a wash cloth while she in standing in the bathtub. But sometimes I know she gets a little redness on the outer lips. When that happens, I ask her if it hurts or is uncomfortable and if she says yes, then we just put some vaseline there after her bath and it usually goes away fast. But how can i prevent this from happening in the first place? I have told her to make sure she wipes until completely dry after peeing. And I have told her that it is ok to take her wash cloth herself and just wipe around on the "insides" while she is in the bath tub. (But she doesnt want to do this). And I dont feel comfortable doing it really either, and she doesnt want me to. So has anyone else experienced this? What is your normal bathing routine? I dont want her to have any irritation or get any infections. ThanksAnswer Question
