Re: What age could your LOs wipe after a BM?

Oldest got it right away so by 3. Middle really wants to do it all (3.5) and stays clean. No true lessons, just following the way they see us doing it.

Re: What age could your LOs wipe after a BM?

We started trying around 4, my 5 year old just about has it down but she lets me know if its a wetter poop so I can check and get it extra clean with a bit of water. My 4 year old tries and I do a follow up sometimes.

Re: What age could your LOs wipe after a BM?

short answer: around 4

I still have him check with me before he pulls his pants up...lol. He is 4y, 4m. Most of the time it's clean.

ODD tries to, she's 3. She doesn't do it well. I think she'll be closer to 4 when she gets it.

It probably depends on how thorough the child is. I think four would an average age. I usually let my son do it and then I do a second wipe to make sure he's clean.

DS was afraid to do it up until he was about 4.5 yrs old but then I insisted that he at least try and now he is pretty good at it. I often check to make sure that he did a thorough job. He is getting better but we still have a few messes every now and then.

I don't wipe butts past PLing. I show them how, they figure it out with time. Miranda is the only one potty trained and she's been fine since the beginning, so 3.

Jake is just now poop training, yes, at 4.5.. ugh. anyway, I'm teaching him to wipe at the same time, I figured if Miranda could get it at 3, he can get it at 6m to 5. lol

I really need to do this too. My older 2 could probably do it but they call me when they are done so can wipe them. Sometimes they are so messy, I don't trust them (especially my son) to get it clean enough, though. Thanks for reminding me. I'm going to work on encouraging them to do it themselves today. :-P
