  • Normal.

    Temperature change and need to urinate can cause erection in small children. This can happen to infants a few hours old. It's not a sexual thing.

  • That's so funny! And sooo normal! My son used to laugh also. I got him to start washing himself down there when he was quite young because it grossed me out how much he enjoyed it when I did it!!!

  • He's laughing because it probably tickles. Totally normal. It never ends either. It's always boys and their wieners! lol

  • Yes, it is normal, and I always figure there is a chance of peeing, so I just cover it back up for a minute and don't make a big deal out of it... the temperature going from nice and warm to cold air is a shocker to them. Now, it doesn't happen normally, and that is fine with me... I say just give it a minute to adjust to the air, and then wipe... don't make a big deal out of it because he is just a baby and totally innocent!
