  • I don't think it's a big deal. usually its just what we call a peepee hard on - that means he's about to pee lol. so if you catch one, better cover that puppy!

  • My boys are 4 months. I only see their dudes wjen I can them and give them bathes. They could have baby erections when they are clothed. When they are older and maybe old enough to take off their clothes it will be normal to see more erections.

  • Give him time he sounds pretty normal to me.

  • On raising my nephew from birth I noticed that his Mr. Dinkers would be really red and looked agitated sometimes like a strange rash. I asked his pediatrician who told me that it was from his sexplorations during bathtime and sometimes while wearing a diaper. Even as a baby he seemed to prefer private time and hid his happy times pretty well. You may not be noticing because he could be shy about it and sneaky. When he starts trying to shoo you from the room during bathtime you will know why.
