    That's the only one that is completely unnatural. All the others are possible. Individual families talk about these things in many different ways; there is no standard form.

    Note that 'diapers' are normally 'nappies' in BrE.

    In BrE, we wipe​ our bottoms after defecating.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
