When I gave my daughter (2 years) a bath the other day I thought we she bleeding for a second! She was very bright red on her vagina. I was concerned at first that maybe something had happened, but I think it's a combination of her wanting to play with herself and how she wipes. She flings her hand/wipe down hard on herself then rips it upward. I've used aquaphor and the redness is going away. And I'm trying to teach her to pat her peepee instead of wiping it. It doesn't seem to hurt her to pee, so I doubt it's an infection. She's in panties during the day and pull ups at night. I suppose those could be irratating her, too.
My question is, how did you teach your kids to wipe gently? And are there any other reasons why she might be so red? Is this normal around this age with learning to do a bunch of new things/not wiping well/etc.?
