Forced Diaper Discipline For Teen Boys
My 6 month old baby boys diaper smells afterhe pees. This happens ifwe leave diaper unchanged for sometime. Is it normal?
Sounds normal...: Urine certainly can have an ammonia-like smell and will be more pronounced after time has gone by and some of the water evaporates making what remains in the diaper more concentrated. If you are noticing pain with urination (crying at the time), blood, or fevers - see the pediatrician to ensure no UTI. Otherwise, be prompt with diaper changes to help prevent skin irritation.See 1 more doctor answer
I Would Be Worried: This is bizarre unless it is part of a prank. If not, you need professional help such as a psychiatrist.
It's OK if it works!: I'm assuming you're asking about a cloth diaper? If so, fold the diaper so you place extra padding over the penis to catch the urine. Fasten it at the baby's hips with tape - or with diaper pins if you're brave. Disposables are probably easier to use, especially if you are new at this! Remember, it only matters that it works - not how it looks! Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Diaper change: Lay diaper open on surface. Roll child to one side and tuck the diaper in as far as you can on that side. Then roll child to other side and pull remainder of diaper through. Then spread child's legs and bring the diaper up in between the legs and fasten. Do not try to lift legs/buttocks as child likely to heavy, will strain both your and child's muscles.
No way to know: People have a variety of fetishes or interests. Most do not cause any harm or keep them from living healthy lives with healthy relationships. It's like trying to ask someone "why" they like strawberry ice cream rather than vanilla. Everyone is different. If your fetish does not interfere with healthy relationships, it is not considered a problem.
Yes: I use it when I suspect a diaper rash caused by yeast. I use it in conjunction with some kind of anti fungal cream such as lotrimin (clotrimazole). Yeast diaper rashes are usually in the creases (but not always). You can google candidiasis if you want to see some images.See 1 more doctor answer
Send for samples: There are so many different high absorbency, slim pads now available on the market - you just need to find one that feels right for you. I'd go into the pad aisle and write down 6 brands you want to try and their contact information on the package. Go home and write or e-mail each one and ask for samples of their product, explaining your specific concerns and what they recommend. Then try them out
Diaper rash?: Is there a diaper rash? Are the wipes too cold? There could be many reasons why your baby dislikes diaper changes.
How many hours is the maximum to leave my baby during night in the diaper? I don't change coz im afraid he might wake up
Until they wake: Today's super absorbent diapers are designed to pull moisture away from the skin into material in the fabric. It's the moisture that over hydrates the skin & sets them up for diaper rashes. Most kids can sleep 6-9 hours in a diaper & not have problems. Those using cloth diapers & heavy diaper covers will trap moisture & have more problems with rashes if left overnight.
My baby is 1 month & I have change his diaper 5 hours ago but it feels like he has not wet his diaper & its night time. Should I b worried.
Not if eating well: Babies start to urinate less often as they get older; initially, they wet with every feeding, but later, they sleep more deeply and may wet less often. If he is eating well and seems comfortable, you can wait and see what happens. If he does not void at least 2-3 times in 24 hours, call your doctor.
My 11 mnth old will not lay flat on his back at all, he screams & fights it until he wins the battle. I have to change diaper while he stands.?
Be creative: If distraction and making a game of it isn't working, it would be better to sit him in the tub to clean up and put the diaper on while he is standing up than to get as angry as he is!
My 2.5 year son refuse say to use toilet I don't know if he know he want to go or not I introduced the concept 2 months ago & we took off diaper help!
Not ready: Put the diaper back on and give your son more time. Everyone develops at their own pace and it is perfectly normal for a 2 1/2 year old to not be ready to use the toilet yet. He will show you signs when he is ready for you to try again (holding his urine longer, asking to go, etc.)See 4 more doctor answers
What should I do if my son eats his diaper every dayand its. Starting to get worse were his eating habbets are really bad and he is not eating a lot or?
See doctor: “pica” is a pattern of eating non-food materials (such as dirt, paper, paint etc.). Your doctor can order blood tests to evaluate anemia, and lead exposure. Treatment should first address any missing nutrients or other medical problems; in general it is important for families to model good nutrition by eating healthful foods together.See 1 more doctor answer
Only everything ;): Just all the things you might need while out and about with a baby. Diapers, wipes, diaper rash cream, bottles, formula, diaper changing pad. Burp cloths, bibs, extra set of cloths for accidents. Medications, including tylenol (acetaminophen) and/or motrin, benedryl, Hydrocortisone and any daily mess your kid is on. Toys, distractors and snacks.See 1 more doctor answer
Speed change!: You want to be fast and prepared, have everything within arms reach, when you are changing a squirmer! You may need to change the baby on the floor, instead of a table, to minimize the chance of falls. Also, keep the baby distracted and his/her hands busy with a special toy while you sneak the clean diaper on!See 1 more doctor answer
