Default Wheel Question?

Just got my little girl a wheel...She loves it & last night I woke up for about an hour around 2am just to watch her run

But this morning when I woke up=HOLY CRAP literally. I wanted to ask everyone here if they have the same issue & have to clean the wheel every day? Not much went in the tray, it was all stuck to the wheel & all over her! She had to get a bath, along with the wheel too

Yes, you have to clean the wheel every day. If it doesn't seem to be running off into the tray, try tilting it down a tiny bit. If you tilt it too far it'll make it hard for her to run. Also, 'poopy boots' will happen regardless and you can just give a foot bath for that. Let her run around in very shallow water, enough for her feet to get wet, and if it doesn't all come off on its own, use a toothbrush or damp paper towel.

That seems totally normal to me! Val's wheel looks like a massacre every time I wake up. I clean Val's wheel every morning before I leave for work and give him a little foot bath so that he doesn't have to go to sleep dirty keeping up on it really decreases the smell too. What kind of wheel do you have? If you have a CSW, tilting it forward decreases the mess a lot.

Wheel wash: every day.

Foot bath: every other day, mostly.
