DS just turned 4 two months ago and I still wipe his butt most of the time just to make sure everything is clean down there after he poops. The other day, my sister (who has no kids) babysat him for a couple hours and he happened to have to poop while she was was there. When he was done, he shouted out that he's ready and she was puzzled as what he was talking about. To her surprise, he was waiting for her to wipe his butt. When I got back, she lectured me on how he should be wiping his own butt by now and when he starts school, the teachers are absolutely not going to be wiping his butt. DS will be starting Pre-K Sept 9th and so lately I have been trying to get him to wipe his own butt with wipes. He isn't too bad at it as long as it isn't a messy poop. I am worried that the teachers really aren't going to help out if he needs to the help. Will he have poop all over his back the whole day because they won't help? The 28th is orientation, so I will bring it up but I am still a bit worried about it.
Thanks for all the responses. I suppose this a parenting fail on my end for not teaching him this much sooner. As mentioned, currently his wipe isn't too bad unless its particularly messy. We have until Sept 9th to keep practicing - that's a little over 2 weeks from now. We are entering butt-wiping boot camp as of today lol.
Holy Shit! My 1st featured post!!! (Pun intended lol)
