Genital Care For Your Baby Girl
1. The cream or powder you use sometimes combines with sweat and collects around the labia. It may cause bacterial infection. Clean your baby girl while you give her a bath with only water.
2. Wet any soft cotton cloth or cotton ball, hold her legs apart and wipe between the labia. Start from the front and gently wipe backwards. You might notice a white discharge (called physiologic leucorrhea). It’s completely normal.
3. Avoid using any type of powder cream or oil around the vagina, it may imbalance the ph level and can cause irritation. If you notice other type of discharge from vagina visit to your pediatrician.
