Worried about DD!!

She isn't wiping after she potties. We finally got her fully potty trained in September but I can't get her to wipe. I put a little baking soda in her water when she has a bath but I'm worried she's going to get some kind of infection. Has anyone been through this that has some tips?

I didn't trust my DD to fully wipe after 1 or 2 til she was about 4. Ready for preschool age. Sometimes I still use wet wipes on her after #2 (she is 6.5) but she is also on miralax so she has softer bm.

I would just keep wiping her yourself til she can fully understand

No, because I let my kids wipe themselves but I supervise. If I see them do it incorrectly just because they are in a rush, then I will wipe. I never let them not wipe ,or do it the wrong direction. Of course, I can't be there forever but for right now until they get it down, i'm there.

I wipe her when I know she's going but I don't always know (if I'm cooking dinner or in the laundry room and she's in her room playing) she's wipes really well when she does it. Right direction and everything the problem is just getting her to do it.

Then if you see she has went (not flush or what not) take her back in and try to explain simply that she needs to wipe.

My DD forgets sometimes an her peepee gets red an I put medacaded cream from the doctor on it. All you can do is remind her.

Yes when you realize she went without you knowing, have her stop and come back into the bathroom and wipe. I know my kids hate when they have to stop playing with their toys. So if you explain to her that she needs to wipe right then so she won't have to come back in the b-room. :):)
