Re: Do you WIPE DD/DS after a PEE ONLY diaper?

If she's cooperative at that diaper change, and she's quite wet, we wipe; if she's raring to go, we may be less thorough with the pee-only dipes. Lately she likes the wipeys and will even wipe herself if I get one out for her! And she wants to put diaper cream on herself, LOL.

I'm adding, after reading the posts in this thread, that most diapers, if changed promptly, should be absorbing enough of the pee that the baby's skin isn't clammy with it. Especially if you use a stay dry liner, there should be barely more than a trace on their skin, and it would be right around the urethra, not all over the butt. When adults use the bathroom to pee, most don't use soap and water to clean their urethra; that would be intensely irritating and it is intensely irritating to do this every time to a girl. Most people blot dry with dry toilet paper and that is good enough; urine is sterile when it comes out. If a diaper is really soaked because of naptime or nighttime or a long car ride, then of course a quick wipe with a baby wipe is a good idea, but otherwise it's just too much. Plain water MAY be less irritating but you'd still be rubbing and drying the skin overly much. You don't want to toughen up the skin on your sweet babie's butt. Let them be unless it's obviously needed, and please change dipes after every pee if you can! No one should be sitting in their own toilet longer than necessary.

Other times, sometimes, but not always (I have boys). Usually it depends on how long they were in that diaper.
That's what we do. Usually his bum isn't wet when I change him and he's certainly not red.

Yes. Simply because if I was sitting in my pee, I'd want to be wiped off- kwim? We use pampers sensative wipes, so they are super gentle on his skin. He gets a bit rashy after a day or so if we don't wipe him often. Even with daily bathes.
