what kind of diapers are you using? if cloth, do you use a liner? i found that if ds' pee and poop touched he'd get a bad rash but as soon as i started using liners it was fine. oh where on his penis? if it's the head could there possibly be some stool in the foreskin? i don't know if that happens, this is my first boy too but that comes to mind as being a possible cause for an infection or irritation.<br><br>
you might want to post in life w/ a babe too so you get more people reading it.

is he intact? ds2 sometimes gets red and a bit puffy around the foreskin. it usually lasts only one day though. I never do anything and it just goes away by itself.
