Moms of girls - re: wiping
 
I know to go front to back LOL but do baby girls need to be wiped at every diaper change? I have 2 boys and am thinking our newbie might be a girl, in which case do I need to make more cloth wipes? I didn't wipe my boys at every change, only when they needed it, but I have no clue how to care for a girl (other than myself) LOL.

I don't always wipe at every pee change. She just won't stay still that long all the time.

I have 6 girls. I wipe at every change. Who wants pee allover themselves? I sure dont, dry or not we wipe. (Always wiped my son down as well). I just use one wipe that is wet.

Just wipe for dirty diapers, just like boys. But girls are much harder to wipe off IME. They have all these folds and crevices that "stuff" gets mooshed into....

Yes. Urine is on the diaper thats touching skin so I wipe it off from both boys and girls. I wouldnt want pee on my sensitive privates.

I always took a dry wipe and just dabbed my girls very quickly, while holding their legs with one hand. I got super fast with my last girl because she's feisty and doesn't like to stay still for long!

Agreed. I only have boys here, but I've always wipe with every change on the girls I've baby sat or any boys in my care. :thumbsup:

I wipe at every change, plus I have a stack of dry wipes I use to dry her off really well too,
