Has anyone every had their son's testicles fall out of the diaper and get caught in the elastic band?

My son is only 4 months old, and this has happend twice at my sons daycare. I bring him home and go to change his diaper and his balls are hanging out the side of his diaper. This last time the whole area was red and swollen. Now the daycare is trying to tell me that it's not them putting the diaper on wrong, it's him sitting in the jumper or bumbo, and I don't buy it. I really like the daycare, my daughter has been going there for 31/2 years with no problems.

  • I don't have a boy, but that doesn't sound right to me. If the diaper was put on right to begin with then nothing should be falling out. I would push the issue and ask them to spend a few extra minutes when diapering to make sure it is one right.

  • Once, my SS came home from BMs house crying. She said she couldn't figure out what was wrong. He was like 18 months old at the time, and kept grabbing his crotch saying "Owie..hurts" We took him inside to find his diaper was on backwards, but sliding to the side, and his penis was stuck in the band. I would tell the daycare to veto the jumper or the chair. That is so terrible.

  • I also have a 10 month old son and this has never happened. I agree with everyone else - I would tell the daycare provider to pay attention when changing his diaper and DO NOT use the bumbo and jumper...

  • I would talk to other mothers of boys at the daycare center, and see if this is happening with them too.
