Me and OH have his 2 year 2 month old little girl up for the weekend, OH asked me to look at her bits as they were red and more "open" than they were 2 months ago. I've had a look, and there does seem to be a hole in her heyman. (sp) about 2mm. Is this normal for her age? Could she have done it herself? I don't have any experience here! Please advise, LOs mum has a new boyfriend who we know nothing about, and being a man he is putting all kinds of scenarios in his head!!!
Asked her who changes her nighttime nappy etc, no funny responses, and doesn't seem nervous...
A hole is normal -if there wasn't one, that would be a problem! In fact, some girls are born without hymens altogether. If you're concerned about the redness or "openness" then you should probably give her pediatrician a call.
You can take her to a pediatrician and explain your concerns I am sure they see this all the time and will be able to look at the baby girl and put you at ease and help you if something is wrong or if there is a rash give her something that it doesn't get worst like a UTI. it is so scary with spouses date strangers to us...Hugs to you guys and i hope it is nothing serious. Perhaps call a triage nurse and explain.
You're in the UK, and I believe there is provision for your partner as a parent to ask the authorities (I don't really know who, police maybe?) about anyone who has access to his child. I think it is called Sarah's Law. It might help to set your mind at ease.
However!!!! It's most likely that nothing is wrong and it's just a rash or something, but if you are worrying, you do have this option.
I constantly had rashes and problems with my bits when I was a small child. Go to a kid doctor (I can't spell the technical name) and ask for there professional opinion. That would be absolutely frightening to have to deal with, but if it's just a small split then it sounds natural. As most girls get some sort of split before puberty to allow menstrual blood to pass easily.
