Do your little girls stink horribly down there?

I feel like a bad mom for asking. But I just cant trust my daughters to bathe themselves. Gosh the smell is horrible. They don't wipe well. Help!

  • maybe the next time they go for a doctor visit have them explain it to them. a. it would embarrass them enough to start wiping and cleaning correctly and b.they would listen to the doctor because its a doctor telling them...just a thought.

  • Well the answer should be obvious, provide them with a lesson on the subject.

  • I have given them a lesson at least 3 times a day. Tried buying those flushable wipes. You name it. It's not me. It's lazyness on their part.

  • I have to remind my daughter after every pee to wipe. She will walk away without doing it if I don't. I also have her use the wet ones at least once a day and put a little baby powder in her panties.

  • how old are your daughters? maybe they still should be helped in the bathroom.

  • Just keep on them; they'll learn. I know it's tedious to do it every time they go potty, but they'll eventually learn. My daughter is getting better; she'll be 4 next month.

  • No, because they shower daily and wash down there - when the older ones were younger I taught them how to wash properly and now they do it for themselves, I still wash my youngest.
