  • No more bubble bath or liquid bath soaps. Even the baby liquid soaps can cause UTI's in girls. Buy a Johnson's baby bar soap. If you can't find it, then use a sensitive Dove white bar. Let her go without a diaper as much as you can. If she's potty trained, be sure she's wearing cotton panties. Besides that, plenty of water.

  • Cranberry juice, water down of course. It has to be real cranberry juice so check the ingredients. Plenty of fluids. Also make sure you wipe both areas away from each other, to reduce the risk of getting another.
