New mom here! HELP! My 9 month old son.....

Earlier today, I was changing my 9 month old sons' diaper and I noticed that he had an erection. Do they really start having these this EARLY??? It kinda surprised me, because I wasn't aware that this happened so early! Does it?....When did your son start?

  • This question made me smile because I was also shocked when I discovered my son's little wee wee fully erect! My son had erections right from birth. He is now 15 months old and still gets them. All I can say is, boys will be boys, no matter what age!

  • lolol. calm down sweetheart! totally normal! my son was less than two months when he had his first one. My nephew was somewhere around 4 months. it's nothing dirty so don't feel perverted cleaning's just a cause and effect thing really. if it bothers you, you can ask daddy to clean baby for a good luck! and congrats on the boy and his "working anatomy" lol

  • I don't know for sure when my son started having them but it was way before 9 months. They're perfectly normal. I know he started having them before he started rolling over on his own so he was pretty young. You might want to be careful though because my son always gets them right before he pees. Found that one out the hard way, just the other day I got peed on, got pee all over a couch cushion, and all over a blanket laying across the couch.

  • it's totally normal...happens when they're about to pee, or if their diaper rubs them a certain way, or for no reason at just happens.

  • it may seem a little weird to you but it is normal. My son is 4 months old and every once in awhile when I change him i notice he has an erection and it started when he was like 2 months old. I also helped my mother raise my little brothers when they were babys and I could never forget when I seen my baby brother with one because I was 14 myself and couldnt understand why my brothers penis was like that haha so yeah I'm postive its normal.
