    It depends on the size of the girl! I would try a 12Fr, and if that was too big go with a 10Fr. But I've had older kids who were really small down there and needed an 8... and others who bypassed a 12. Get a bright flashlight and take a look, then choose your catheter based on what you've seen.

    thanks, and I kept searching and read to probably use either size 8 or 10, but to consider, of course, the size of the urinary canal
