This is our 2nd baby that is clearly communicating about elimination needs. While some things are easier, I am finding it actually more challenging to pee a boy than a girl. As he gets older (4 1/2 months now) it has become easier to hold him, but my tiny hands and his chunky thighs make it hard for me to hold him AND use a finger to direct his penis in the right direction. (not to mention the fact that I might have him pointing toward the potty but his pee can unexpectedly go sideways!) Yes, we're having fun around here!
Because it is totally unpredictable where that little stream of pee will flow, I end up needing to remove all clothing from the waist down. With my baby girl, all I had to do was pull her leggings down to her knees. With colder weather fast approaching, I am desperately seeking options to keep this little guy warm without having wet clothes.
Any experience or helpful tips?
I am beginning to understand why historical paintings have boys wearing dresses until they were a few years old. Any good ideas for a boy dress? Ooo, maybe a wool kilt and wool knee-hi socks?
