You can also see if they can get a NICU nurse or a ped ER nurse with experience. Or you could take the diaper off, swab the penis with a wipe, and do a clean catch when he pees -- because his foreskin is fused there's no risk of "contamination" from stuff under the foreskin.
I had to take my dd2 to the ER yesterday. She's almost 4 and is fully weaned, and my third child, so at least the bad advice printed on the discharge sheets didn't affect us, but I really want to write letters with references to refute the following wrong advice:   Under "General Information on a Fever":   1) Rest and drink plenty of fluids . . . Children less than one year old, for the first 12 to 24 hours, usually do best with:   A) diluted formula (mix one...
Could he be having a yeast issue? It may be a long shot but sometimes that can cause redness and irritation. If he eats a lot of sugars or processed grains, and/or he's had antibiotics lately, it might be a possibility. Also make sure to avoid soap in the bath until it's time to wash up and get out, and avoid bubble baths, too much time in pools, etc. as all of these can irritate genital tissues in both boys and girls. But my guess is that the ballooning will pass. I...
Do nothing, and don't worry! Honestly, intact girls are way more messy and prone to irritations/infections than intact boys (I've had both boys and girls, although none has ever had anything beyond a bit of normal diaper rash -- but the girls were way harder to clean with all those nooks and crannies!)

My husband had no real issue leaving our son intact, but I did make the mistake of really preaching at him about the evils of circ because I not only wanted him to agree not to circ I wanted him to realize how WRONG AND EVIL it is. That was a big mistake on my part, both because of the way my husband is (really doesn't like to be preached at) and because I wasn't sensitive enough to his feelings about his own body, about his parents' decision to circ him (1967, wasn't an...
