To wipe or not to wipe...that is the question

I just saw the pole asking if you use a wipe each diaper change even if it is just pee.
I do, I would not want to smell like pee would you? you, or don't you?

  • Absolutely....I've always used a wipe after their diaper changes. Why? Because it's cleaner for them, their skin, etc. Plus, I know someone who didn't either, and they always wondered why their baby had diaper rashes.

  • I don't wipe every time and my dd does not get rashes. Sorry my2luvbugs.

  • I also don't wipe every time, and my son rarely has a diaper rash. He also doesn't smell like pee. Lol...

  • I would say pretty much all the time. Mine aren't in diapers anymore. I don't have my son wipe on the toilet when he pees. He just shakes it off!

  • Nope I dont and didnt. My sons used to get really horrible rashes and the pediatrician said it was from wiping after ever pee. After I stopped they didnt get rashes anymore. Id wipe in the morning, after poop and they took baths everyday, sometimes twice (boys you know). My dd I wiped her after every time because well I guess I just figured its a little diff.

  • I don't unless its hot. And that's just to wipe sweat off and cool him off. My 16 mo has ever only had 2 rashes, and it was from diarrhea. And he never smells like pee. Diapers are so absorbant now there's really no need.

  • I never even considered that some people might not wipe if it's just pee. This is a totally new thing to me, lmao. I plan to wipe after every diaper change. I know that urine is sanitary and sterile, but it'll make me feel better if I know my daughter is totally clean.

  • I always wipe, I caught my hubby not wiping and I yelled at him! I dont want my son to get diaper rash.

  • Nope, I only wipe them when they are poopy or very very wet.
