For pee dispers, wipe the external girl parts with a wet wipe at every change. I also hit the legs and bum because I have found that DD will get irritated skin. I use one wipe most of the time. Id do the same for a boy.

I do not clean the internal parts around tje ureatha except if there is a need - big messy job that got everywhere, etc. It's a bigger issue when there newbies and have liquidy poops. Once my DD started having solid poop, it was less of a problem because it didn't move forward too much. As for the vagina, I just make sure the parts I can see are clean. I don't want to mess around and push anything inside.

I bathe my DD pretty much every day (shes 2) and we wash the internal and external parts with a gentle soap and wash cloth.

I seem to remember the ped telling me not to mess around with the folds and crevices around the urethra too much when she was a nb but that if you needed to clean to take a q tip soaked in water and GENTLY cleaning up. Talk to your ped when baby is born I seem to remember being given explicit instructions on the matter. I just can't remember. sorry preggo brain.

Re: Moms of girls - re: wiping

Yes, I wipe EVERY time. Pee on skin can cause rashes and skin breakdown. I only use water on my wipes.

Same for us with two girls.

Re: Moms of girls - re: wiping

Yep, we wiped w/ a water-dampened wipe @ every change...who wants to have the baby (or toddler) w/ pee-pee stink?

Same as others, it was pretty much surface wipe-down for urine, whatever was needed for thorough cleaning up for poop.

Re: Moms of girls - re: wiping

I have two girls and we only wipe for poo or if they're naked I'll dab the bum dry.

It's actually better to keep soap away from genitals, especially in girls as it can cause infections...

I was always concerned with rashes.

Re: Moms of girls - re: wiping

Nope. None of my babies get wiped for pee. As long as the diaper is absorbent enough and they're changed frequently, there shouldn't be any moisture on their skin.

This! I would rather change 10 not vs 1 girl poop... I swear DD gets poop in get vagina every since poop! DH gets stressed having to clean all her parts out.
