My 2-month-old is suddenly very fussy and irritable, not going to sleep easily, and especially fussing when he pees or needs to pee. My husband thinks the baby's pee smells kind of weird, too (not sure I agree). He's nursing really fussily too, lots of popping off and on and crying. I would suspect a UTI, but he doesn't have a fever and his pee is normal-colored.
The only thing that I can think of that happened recently that was kind of weird (maybe could have caused it?) was that, at his 2-month check up on Tuesday, the dr. pulled his foreskin back and asked if we were cleaning under there (yes, I know I shouldn't have let this happen, he was just suddenly DOING it). I said, "No, I was told to just leave it alone and it would separate on its own eventually." He gave me kind of a weird look and said, "We'll keep an eye on it." My baby was freaking out this whole time. Could that have caused these symptoms? First baby, I don't know anything. His little penis looks a bit different now--uhm...a bit... baggier? like the foreskin is a little looser than it was. That could be my imagination.
I just was so happy to be blessed with one of those magic non-fussy babies, and now THIS. I'm pretty ticked... of course it's possible that this is just a coincidence, and I was so upset that the doctor retracted his foreskin that I'm attributing everything to this.
Has anyone else had this happen?
