Ok, extremely disgusting and embarrassing but I need help. When 'cleaning up' after doing the business in the loo how the hell do you reach your backside. I'm 30 weeks btw.

Toddler wipes blush

You have to go in from the back rather than front wipe front to back rather than back to front.
So what you should do anyway to avoid thrush etc ....(which I don't...try to but force of habit -I blame my mother wink - have tried to teach DDs the 'right way' though)

Jesus, I keep pulling a muscle in my side trying to contort myself. After each wipe I have to sit there for a minute rubbing my side. Thank god it's not just me. grin

I don't struggle tbh and I'm 35 weeks.
Slightly arched back, reach round the side, front to back.

What are you struggling with? I just did what I always did. You reach round. The bump is at the front. What is the problem? I've probably missed something.

I've had to start going in between my legs and pushing upwards. And if I'm at home and it's an 'unpleasant one' I often use the shower head!

I'm in the same position-literally. I'm like a contortionist, albeit a fat, stiff rubbish one. Wet wipes have helped a little bit blush

Do you suit down to wipe or stand? I find sitting and reaching round easier than standing....
