  • Are you sure it wasn't farts?
    Circumcision has nothing to do with this.

  • You need to take him to the ped. He may have a UTI, which would make the urine smell like this. It is very important that you do this ASAP . . . because it could travel to his kidneys.

    Circumcision, beyond 3 months, is really not advised. It is a pretty big procedure for babies that are not newborns, and there are more risks involved. Newborn is the best time for that.

    But, get your babe to the doc. They should test his urine.

    If he has a fever, I would take him to the hospital tonight.

  • Are you using cloth diapers? If so then maybe your diapers need stripping

  • You can always call and ask the ped nurse. It is worth the professional guidance when you are talking about a babe that can't tell you if they are in pain or not. The urine should not smell. Next Tues is kind of a long time to wait if an infection might be there. It really is. But, you could call now . . or tomorrow.
