wiping??

so i just heard and read today that for little girls you dont have to wipe them every time after a pee. (obviously wipe for poos)

anyone else hear this?

i have been wiping at every diaper change but noticed that her bum was getting a little red. I am hoping if i stop wiping after pees this will go away.

 

Re: wiping??

  • I don't wipe her at every pee and so far so good.

  • I've never seen a pee-only diaper! DD poops a lot!

  • I would wipe.. She had urine against her skin and putting a new diaper on doesn't change the fact that her area was rubbing against and exposed to urine..

    I would not over wipe just at least once over..

  • I wipe about every other pee. We were wiping after every pee in the beginning but ended up with a diaper rash. When we wipe and don't wipe I make sure to always dry off her bottom before putting another diaper on. So far this has worked well for us and her!

    same here. I will wipe if she looks really wet, otherwise no wipes.

  • unless it was an overnight diaper, i never wiped pee-only diapers with dd and she never had a rash.
  • My opinion.....I wipe every time, and I wouldn't want to sit in a diaper with urine on my butt. Just use diaper rash cream everytime. Thats what I do and shes never had any redness.

  • We do, just so there's no urine residue that sticks to her.  We use Huggies Sensitive wipes, and have never had an issue.  If it's just pee, it's only a quick swipe, not a thorough scrub. 
  • i wipe @ every change...even if its just a once over. i'm not using wipes though. water/washcloth.
  • I always wipe DD, but she's never had a problem with rashes.

    I do this out of fear of UTI's. I CD, so she doesn't really get a red bum or diaper rash or anything.

  • I wipe, but I use something to fan him dry before putting the new diaper on.
  • my DD hasn't had a diaper rash since she was about a week old...I hope I don't jinx myself. I wipe at every pee just because if I don't it stinks to me.
