My 5 year old will not seem to wipe her own bottom after she goes poo-poo. She says she can't do, and it does seem a bit hard for her to reach back there. But she is starting kindergarten in August. What happens if she goes poo-poo in school? I know the teachers can't help her, and I don't want her to have poop on her bottom all day. We have tried everything we can think of. Of course I am not going to tell her unless she does it the poop will stay on her. Because that is way too cruel and I know if poop gets in her other parts it can cause an infection. So she knows that someone will always wipe her. How can I get her to do it on her own? She also forgets to wipe herself after she pees a lot of the time. i have tried to tell her that not wiping her pee will irritate her, and she tries, but sometimes she just forgets I guess. Help!!! Has anyone else dealt with this?
