How do I make sure DD wipes?

Sometimes I'll be in the bathroom with her and I make sure she wipes but I know when she goes alone she doesn't. How do I make sure she wipes?

  • How old is she? Mine is 2 and she wipes MOST of the time one of us always goes into the bathroom to help her wipe. Kids under the age of 5 usually need help (that's from personal experience and from the pediatrician, thank you) because they wipe wrong. Especially little girls. (back to front instead of front to back).
    The best thing to do is always always push it. You may need to help her with it for a couple of months. It takes time for children to learn a habit because they're kids. You know?
    Good luck!

  • I knew when my oldest was wiping and I learned it the hard way. She was always picking at herself, come to find out those cute wipes I was getting her give 99% of girls infections or reactions. Since we trashed those things she hasn't had a problem.
    My 3 year old daughter NEVER wipes. I constantly have to track her down. But honestly I'm lucky if she keeps clothing on, so drip drying isn't really an issue! LOLOLOL
