Yes definitely what the other ladies have said :wink: You don't need to clean 'deep' just wipe away everything you can see. Boys are definitely much easier in that department :wink: :giggle:

Yep what the others have said. I only cleaned inbetween if there was something to clean.

My dd never got the discharge or a mini period but she produced milk! It freaked me right out :(

Boys are easier until they are weaned then weetabix etc gets stuck in the wrinkly bits on their testicles :)

I was at such a loss I asked the mw's in hospital :oops: anyway, when it was all gungy straight after brith they showed me that you just kinda hold it apart and wipe over the top. Dp once found a bf flake of poo stuck at the side in there though that I must've missed as he hardly ever changed/changes her bum and so I then started checking a bit more but not neccessarily wiping unless there was something to wipe ifykwim...is much easier now with solid poo!

We only get runny poo here - I wipe down the middle but don't go overboard if that makes sense?

:giggle: WTS, boys are easy in comparison! I did have to get after OH a bit for not cleaning Lili properly after a poo :-?, you can just have a look and it should be obvious if she needs a bit more wiping :wink:. She also used to get a kind of whitish buildup in the creases inside (sorry don't want to go into too much detail :giggle:), which the doctor said I could clean off with a damp cotton bud ... she said it wasn't anything to worry about but I didn't really like to leave it there all the same, and it didn't seem to wash off in the bath!

Oh I remember asking the midwife about this and being all :oops: about it - but do what the others have said and all will be fine :D

Now boys are much easier (unless they take aim and fire some pee right at you) you just lift and wipe :giggle:
