  • gud quesion, my 4 yr old son goes by himself but calls me to wipe him when he's finished. my mom taught me around 4/5 and i remember her saying wipe until the toilt paper is white, when its white that means there is no more poo on ur butt. obviously if u wipe and its brown theres still poo lol thanks mom

  • DS is 2, so we wipe him. Not sure when we'll let him give it a go.

  • The earilier it is the easier it is. Not that it will be perfect for a long time, but it helps.

  • My daughter is almost 4 and can wipe herself but I usually do it for her so that it gets done good & correctly.
