could my son's penis be hurting him or does he have some kind of UTI?

this morning my son wouldnt let me put on a new diaper - he let me take off the dirty one but rolled away (cried) when trying to put on a new one, then a second later, he sat up on the bed then peed all over the bed. i thought maybe he knew he had to pee right away and didnt want me to put on the diaper. then this afternoon, he cried during a diaper change, then later he hit his penis -but he normally does that from time to time. i can't tell if something is wrong. help, please!

  • My two year old told us "my wiener hurting" when he had to go to pee. I think it is a sigh of you LO learning to hold in his pee. The next time I would bring him to the potty and see if he goes.

  • if he is grabbing himself or if his pee is dark and smelly then he probably has a uti. but he could be just trying to exersice he right to hold his pee.

  • I agree. As long as you don't see or smell anything weird in his urine, he might be ready to sit on the potty.
