  • Sounds like someone is just tired of her diapers. try potty training her she is at that age. Get her pull-ups that look like real big girl undies. If it was "itchy" or "in pain" it would be the same with the diaper off...I say go buy the pull-ups and see if that works. and if there is no irritation from the looks of her then I say try that then take her to the dr.

  • May be a urinary tract infection.

  • My daughter has very sensitive skin and will have problems if I give her juice. Have you checked between her lips for any redness like a rash possibly starting?

  • this may sound gross, but plain, unsweetened yogurt is very soothing down there for girls. Use it as a diaper cream all over (it won't hurt anything) (assuming she isn't allergic to yogurt) and it may provide temporary relief of whatever is causing her discomfort. Little girls can get yeast infections too. Warm moist environments are yeast playgrounds, so try keeping the diaper off for a while. Who knows if that is what is going on or not, but unitl you get to the dr, this might soothe her temporarily.
