Viva La Vulva Peri Wash cleansing Bottle
Viva La Vulva Perineal wash bottle (holds 300ml)
What is a peri bottle you ask? "Peri" is short for perineum, the area between your vagina and anus. The area you just squeezed out a tiny human and its most likely darn tender or possibly be torn or have stiches! ouchies !
The official name for a peri bottle is a perineal irrigation bottle and it is basically a plastic squirt bottle which can go upside down to help you rinse your perineal area especially while peeing ( as this can be pretty stingy after birth). Using a peri bottle while peeing can dilute the urine to lessen stinging and also help to cleanse the area between changing your maternity pads without the need for wipes or toilet paper while you are feeling extra sensitive.
- Fill with warm water ( cooled boiled water for optimum hygiene )
- Add a few drops of healing witch hazel if you wish
- Squirt away while you are sitting on the toilet or in the shower
