  • Mine was 5. Have her use wet wipes and tell her to wipe till she is clean. Do NOT throw them in the toilet. They will eventually clog even though they say it won't.

  • I refuse to do it after 5 ! gave my kids a wiping lesson showing them on a doll or on them.
    I bought flushable wipes for them to use, this helps to heck I like them. they flush fine if you only use two each time, or they may clog up your toilet. I refuse to throw them in the trash because of the smell & uncleanness.

    There is no smell in my trash and our bathroom is clean. My husband is a basment water-proofer and they snake a lot. Wipes, pads and tampons are the main reason why their systems are blocked.

  • How many rashes and sore bottoms has your kid had ANON 9:39? My son has NEVER had a rash because I have always made sure he was clean. Mind your own business if the question doesn't pertain to you..have a nice day :)

  • I would say 4 or 5. Once your child is in preschool or Kindergarten they need to know how to wipe themselves because a teacher is not and cannot help them.
