How did you go about teaching your children to wipe their own bum? Louie loves nothing more than getting on all fours, sticking his bum in the air and shouting "can you wipe my bum please?"
Wet-wipe toilet paper?Regular toilet paper and just deal with any mess?
What did you do?

C still does that sometimes Belle, although we know he can wipe himself, he just says he's too tired to do it! He has to as school anyway!
We have the toilet wipes at home as I think that's a bit easier for him and softer on his bottom, then he has to use toilet paper anywhere else - we just got him to start trying himself for the odd wipe and we'd finish it for him.

I let her nursery teach her.
But apart from that used normal toilet paper and checked for any mess at the end.

Ah yes I'm too tired, we get that a LOT!

J uses normal tissue, after a couple of months of using wet toilet tissues, to get used to doing it.
For a 2 yr old, he is very OCD about making sure his bottom is clean. Once C was at Nursery, I stopped wiping his bottom for him, and the only time I wipe J's, is if he has a bad tummy.

We use normal tissue. She does an ok job but sometimes we have skids in the knickers (especially after school!!!)

We use wipes here, seems to work better than toilet paper.
J is a bit lazy and sometimes asks me to do it but I tell him to and then I'll check that he's all clean.

Liam is hit or miss, so we just do it for him Will have to get some of those toilet wipes for him actually.

I was only thinking yesterday from what age could I expect U to wipe her own bum. She disappears upstairs and screeches she needs her bum wipign but I don't always here her so she gets really cross.
