diaper changes

Every time my daughter poops, I have to wipe between her labia because it gets pushed up in there.
Is this normal with girls? Should I fear infections? Am I doing anything wrong? Is the area too sensitive to be wiped 3 to 4 times a day? She poops that often!

I hate that :( My daughter has been like that lately too. Daddy will be changing her sometimes and is like 'can you come finish this? it doesn't feel right to be going into that much detail with a little girls parts' cause it is really up in there and takes awhile to clean.

Normal. Wipe front to back with a fresh area of wipe and she should be good as long as whatever you're using won't cause a problem.

I have a small confession, I don't always use wet wipes to clean my kids. I put them in the shower and spray them off. Usually after spraying them off they end up taking a bath, so whatever is left is "washed" off.  Is that an option~ occasionally?

I don't have girls but that seems fine to me.

I've done that but poop stays in her labia, no joke. Even after SITTING in the water. I think in our family they are just really meaty I guess and don't spread when the girls sit. It surprises me actually when I change a diaper at church or for a friend that theirs are not as chubby there as my girls. I'm just so used to how my own babes look.

Op, very very normal. I've had to do it from day 1 because like I said in the earlier post my girls just that way.
