  • I take my DD to the sink and wash her out under the water there. I can't use the wipes because I feel like I"m missing something. The water helps me to make sure it's all flushed out.

  • I know it's extreme, but you could start potty training her. It was not intentional but my daughter was really constipated and I held her over the toilet. She does all her stinks on the toilet now and it is so nice to not have to worry about the big mess!!

  • I never had a problem with it, just wipe form front to back and be gentle. Also, for bath time, be sure to rinse her well there.
