I am getting used to having a DD (she's nearly 3 weeks old) and I know that one should pretty much just wipe the outside of her labia, but she's done a few poos recently and when pulling her legs open to get in the creases of the hip joints, I noticed some poo just inside her labia. Should I gently wipe a bit of damp cotton wool in there or just leave it? It seems odd to leave it. Thanks in advance!
Oh boys are so easy to change apart from the weeing in your eye thing!
I have a son and two daughters and even when DD2 came along, I still found changing pooey nappies quite a chore. With DS I just grapped a few babywipes and swished them around. I always had to be so much more careful and delicate with the girls.
And yes, to answer your question, definitely clean inside but only use cotton wool and water even when she's bigger to avoid infection.
