  • I don't think you should be worried.My DD was born with such a swollen vagina that it looked like it was escaping her. I asked the doctor and he said it was fine. Is your DD swollen. If your really worried then meet with the PED. Have the doctor calm your worries.

  • This is not an unusual or abnormal occurence. When my sister was a baby she peed on the wall beside the changing table!

  • my daughter did that.. ended up she had alot of UTI's as she got older because her urethra tube was too long and they did an out patient surgery and cut the tube, was alright after that, not one UTI afterwards..

  • All 3 of mine did that too. They had more fountains than my DS did.

  • My older DD did this when she was a baby too. One of my friends suggested I check for labial adhesions, which can cause this, which she did not have. Her pediatrician said some girls are just born with a urethra that points more forward then down. Now that she's older (4) she has discovered that she can pee standing up just as good as any boy can. It's pretty funny to see her standing at the potty with the steam coming almost straight out from her vulva.
