My 2 year old dd's bits smell nasty - what do I do
dd is 2.3 and is being slowly potty trained. she spends most of the day out of her nappy and goes on the potty regularly. I noticed at the weekend that when she had a wee and I was wiping her, she smelt rather fishy.
The childminder mentioned it today too.
It's quite a pungent smell and she has flushed red cheeks (facial I mean).
omg - I hadn't thought of that but I can't imagine she would. she's a real fusspot about anything not being right with her or her clothes and gets upset if she has a bit of loose skin on her fingers or a rag nail.
My gut feeling is that if she had an infection then she would be complaining of discomfort. My 2.6 year old's knickers whiff a bit by the end of the day, but I think that is the breakdown of urea etc in her urine (she probably gets the odd drop on the crotch of her knickers when she doesn't wipe properly)
