Hi,

The most common risk factor in a girl child who is completely normal is washing the anal and genital area from back to front which will infect the urinary tract.

From next time please be careful about this and also try to avoid diapers as much as possible and do not put a single diaper consistently for more than 4 hours.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
