When DD doesn't tell us she has a poop in her diaper (regular occurrence) it gets squished up between her labia. DD hates to be cleaned between her labia because it seems to be a little ouchie for her. When DH or I are cleaning the poop out she fusses and we tell her that she could avoid having her folds cleaned between if she would tell us as soon as she poops. I've been trying to tone this down a little lately because I'm afraid it sounds to her like having her labia cleaned is punishment for not telling us she pooped right away. I really worry about urinary tract infections with the poop getting smeared up there and I think it is important for her to make the connection between getting cleaned up quickly and avoiding being wiped in a sensitive place, but how to avoid making it sound like labia cleaning is punishment? I'm really stumped here.
