|I feel a bit awkward about the size of my little girls genitals,
and unsure about keeping them clean.
Most babies, both boys and girls, are born with genitals
which seem oversized in proportion to the rest of their
bodies. This is perfectly normal and caused by the presence
of the mother’s hormones in the system of the baby.
The most important thing to remember when cleaning little
girls is always to wipe from front to back, so as not to
introduce bacteria into the baby’s vagina. Generally
cleaning around the valva should be sufficient, and opening
the valva to clean inside should be avoided if possible.
If you do clean within, remember that white discharge is
normal and can be left alone.
