HT4627 So after you dis-associate a device with an old appleid, how do you assign the "new" appleid to the device?

When I set up my daughter's new iPod touch I entered my wife's appleid.  So now the device was associated with that ID. I read that I should create a unique ID for my daughter so I did that, and then I removed the device from my wife's account through iTunes.  I didn't think it would let me do that due to the 90 day restriction, but I was able to remove the device.  It didn't say 90 days remaining, as I had expected.


Anyway, assuming the device was successfully removed from my wife's account, how do I now associate the device with my daughters new ID?  Does it even matter which ID the device is associated with?

iPod touch, iOS 6.0.2
