My 4 month old DD has started peeing with almost every diaper change. The problem is that she pees straight up, just like a boy. She has peed on me, DH, and pees on herself regularly. I always thought that girls didn't have this issue. Is this normal? Anyone else have this happen? The worst part is that since she is a girl, you never know what direction the pee is going to come shooting out of her little vagina, so it's hard to even be ready.

Could she have a fused labia? Do the labia minora separate fully? Mine had a fused labia, which I didn't notice, and she used to pee upwards.

Her labia seem fine. There is a good separation running the whole length of her vulva.

Tonight she did it again and it was just like a water fountain shooting straight into the air. Your 5 mo DD does this too? That makes me feel a bit better that she's not the only one.
