Q:

Can someone pls help me regarding my baby girl s genital care. My malish wali cleans between the labia and she cries a lot..is it correct?



Sheeba Vijesh

Roopashree Siddireddy can you help

Roopashree Siddireddy

Oh No. Don't allow her to touch that area. Should be gentle. Better you start massaging your baby. Mostly malish ppl will be very rough and won't handle properly.

Roopashree Siddireddy

It's not correct. You should gently clean from top to bottom movement that too with wipes or soft cotton cloth. No need to massage those private areas. It's not recommended. Ask her not to do. Thanks for the tag Sheeba Vijesh

Sujata Patodia

thank u sheeba and roopashree mam

Sheeba Vijesh

happy to help Sujata... did you cut her nails? btw, you can now massage and bathe her yourself... as a new mom we are afraid we will hurt the baby, but the truth is, we are the only persons who will not hurt the baby knowingly or unknowingly also...

Archana Bhosale

Pls tell her that it is hurting baby.  Ask her not to touch baby genitals. For cleaning purpose u can just use body wash superficially and water.  Wash that area with gentle hands no rough methods.  Pls tell that female doctor has scolded for improper methods.

Sujata Patodia

No sheeba..will cut her nails tomorrow ...

Sujata Patodia

yes Archana will do so..thank u
