  • Oh yeah. If she wipes back to front (my nieces took forever to be broken of that) she can get one. And not a lot of people know this but bubble bathes can give her one too. I use to get them all the time from bubble bathes. Mr. Bubble was the worst :(

  • well alot of things can cause it, bacteria in a diaper, or wiping back to front,, too much soap in the bathtub, not enough water,, don't worry mamma, are you worried about someone not being "proper" with her? But 100% can happen for many reasons, but you need ot take her to the doctor, and get her examined, my cousin had a too small opening to let the urine come out,, and needed surgery,,hugs

  • My little Laura would get UTI's, and the dr sent her to the hospital to get x-rays of her bladder/kidneys. I'm glad he did, because her bladder wasn't formed properly. She had to have surgery in order to correct this.

    If child is having frequent UTI's, I would seriously ask the dr about doing this. Also, if child is constipated, it can also cause a UTI.

  • is she potty training?? if so - she could be holding her pee too long - that will give anyone a uti.
