When did your child learn to wipe behind?

My daughter is 4 and still doesn't want to wipe her behind.
She thinks it gross and will get poop on her hand..
How old is your child when they learned to wipe, What did you do to help?

  • About age 4. We give him babie wipes, and he does great. He just kind of quit calling us in there and did it on his own.

  • My daughter will be 4 in May and I still wipe her behind after a B.M.. She does a good job after urinating and makes sure she is dry, but after a bowel movement I let her wipe it and then I wipe it too. I worry that she won't get clean and get irritated and sore.

  • yeah my daughter does wipe in the front fine. She just doesn't get the whole wiping her butt. She says she can't reach and when she finally does she says it gross.
