Front to Back

One of the most common diapering instructions given to new parents, is to wipe their baby's bum from front to back. The idea is that by wiping front to back, you will not be wiping bacteria up into the urethra which in turn will cause a urinary tract infection. Can anyone explain to me why this matters, when upon opening a poopy diaper you find that every nook and cranny has already been coated?


  1. that is a very good question!

  2. With both of my girls I've wondered this very same thing!
