When should I start allowing my DD to learn to wipe herself?
She is 31 months, has been potty trained full time for about 5 months. I don't feel like she is old enough to wipe herself well enough, She is persistenton doing it all on her own. I have explained to her how to wipe from front to back and how much toilet paper to use. I let her try and I go behind her and make sure she is all clean. But she is going to the bathroom without telling anyone and wiping herself and pulling her pants up, washing her hands and going back to what she was doing. I can only tell because she doesnt flush when she does it alone and the water mess all over the sink, and later the stench in her panties of urine. I keep encouraging her to tell mommy or daddy when she needs to go and we will come wipe her, and alot of the time we will caught her before she is done and we get her wiped but she sneaks it whenever she can. If I keep with the "wiping lessons" do you think she is old enough to start wiping and using the bathroom by herself?
