    Just a quick read though & I have to disagree on the catty thing. Maybe if you were told by a family member from a young age it all seems very obvious (like so many things that you go "oh! Of course!" when you know better ☺️)
    I one of those who wasn't "taught" what to do & probably did the wrong thing for quite some time. It all came down to my mother not wanting to talk about ANYTHING that may or may not happen to one's body at any given time. Hell - I had to buy my own sanitary products because she simply denied that I got periods!

    I didn't know until late teens and felt so bad when I found out the 'correct' way. However I tell my 3.5yr DD to do it the right way and she just does it back to front while I'm right in front of her telling her front to back :/ I think she struggles to reach or something???

    I think you are spot on with the not being able to reach properly. DD has the same problem - once she fell off the toilet! I feel that communication with children about this sort of thing is alot more common then when i was a kid. Not as much is taboo it seems.

    I'm another who was never taught the correct way as a child. I can't even remember when I found out the correct way. I've never had any issues with UTI's though.

    In response to your OP, I was taught front to back. It's what I've taught/will teach my girls. It may seem like common sense but to a little kid- not so much!

    Front to back. Don't actually remember if I was taught it or not? I DO remember being told at school later in life and then having a freak out every time I went to the loo to make sure I was doing it the right way. I do wipe back to front in cases of bad poo, but not enough to push towards the vagina (if that makes sense). Never had a UTI.

    I actually find this really weird. I've always wiped back to front, and yet I've never had a UTI in my life and never wiped anything horrible from "there" to "there". Do people actually reach in from behind to wipe from the front to the back??? That seems so totally weird to me!! Hahaha. Had no idea I was doing it "wrong".
