OK I'm a bit embarassed to ask this but my 2 year old daughter's bottom is very ... smelly! She baths every night and washes with a flannel, but she is quite pungent! How normal is this? She is toilet trained so it's not like she has wet nappies on or anything.

This happens to my dd on occasion, but usually goes away again. I was advised NOT to wash my dd's bottom with soap, unless VERY pooey (!), just water, and to avoid bubbles like the plague! i think they can alter the pH of the vaginal tissue, and cause irritation.

flannels can also hord bacteria unless u change it regularly so that could be a cause too.
