Always wipe front to back to avoid infections of any type.

Clean in all the folds and creases to avoid any grossness left behind.

Girls are sweet but can be demanding. Be patient

Just because you put a bow on that baby doesn't mean people will know she's a girl, lol.

My girl was a lot more demanding than my son, and a lot more of a diva personality.

Is it true that a few days after birth she's going to have a pink, mucousy discharge from her area?!!! I've NEVER heard that and wanted to know what to expect bc if I were to see that without knowing, I would freak the heck out LOL!

My daughter never did that and I read recently about that so I would have freaked too if I hadn't read that, but I heard it's normal.

Also make sure you cover them while changing their diaper, they might not have aim like boys, but they can still get ya.

This is exactly just for girls.. But it's something I wondered today.. When are you suppose to use baby powder? Do you put a little on after each diaper change?

DD2 did have a pinkish discharge a few days after she was born, DD1 didn't.

As far as powder, I have never used it...it's messy and also can be dangerous and irritating if it gets in their face. I just use wipes, and then if they get a rash, which mine rarely do, I will use vaseline or a diaper rash creme until it clears up

My girls have never had any bleeding or pink discharge but a family friend's did, it's normal and I believe due to hormones from you getting out of their system or something like that. Apparently a little leaky nipples are also possible.

I never use baby powder and the one time I did, it really irritated my daughter's area.

Yeast infections in babies aren't like they are in grown women, they're like a rash. That said, prescription meds never got rid of my daughters' yeast infections, only Triple Paste did.

Don't use bubble baths. Little girls get irritated and get UTI infections from bubble baths. Wait until they are older and stick to just water in the bath tub.

Little girls are a lot of fun and I love my four yr old daughter so very much, as we do girly things together, but girls are very stubborn and independent thinking. Nurture her through providing positive role models.

Definitely no baby powder! Its' not recommended due to being in the air and clogging up their airways!

Oooh I thought of one for girls AND boys. If they keep having leaks in their diapers then it's probably time to go up a new size, so if you're in newborn diapers and they you have had a few leaks even though diaper was on correctly, time to go to size 1s, etc.

Those of you with both, how are your boys and girls similar and how are they different?
