I heard somewhere that you are suppose to point a boy's penis downward when changing his diaper so that urine doesn't shoot out. The nurses at the hospital never mentioned this to me. It makes sense I suppose, but at my son's age it's a bit small to point in any direction. It's just like a stub and it really can't go in any direction. Are any moms able to point it downwards or does anyone do that?
