or more so, need advice, my 3.5 year old has been 100% potty trained for a lil over a year... when should he start wiping his own butt. I do it for him now and at daycare they do it for him, but i was thinking.... when should I teach him how to do it himself? how do I help him do it himself and KNOW he is CLEAN? and ughh I don't want to deal with clogged toilets lol
how do you teach a 3.5 year old to wipe their own butt??? lol
I was thinking like 4 or 5... I have no problem cleaning his butt for him, and neither does my husband, but we were just wondering how old is too old for him to be asking us to clean his butt.... thank you for your reply. :]
So my daughter is only 15 months but you'll have to monitor it and do a check at first or there is chance of thrush and other bacterial infections. My friend's son didn't do it himself until about 5.
thank all of you ladies. I think I will try to show him... his preschool is willing to help him wipe. they do right now and said they have no problem "working with him and making sure he is getting clean" so hopefully he will get it. I know he will eventually. :]
