12-day-old Baby’s Penis Is Not Erect?
my son br born 12hr. but his penis is not erect … even though his brothers used to have an erect penis if they were going to pee and want to pee and at a certain time. This is not … seen from his pee. If his brother is wearing a diaper, he will fix his penis to the bottom of the body … when it is tense so … but this child doesn’t. How is it still normal?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, baby boys (up to toddlers and children) can indeed experience an erection at certain times, but not having an erection does not indicate a problem with your baby (especially when your baby is only 12 days old). New erections will not be a problem if they occur after the child has puberty and the erection is intentionally induced (the child performs sexual stimulation and an erection does not occur). If it does not happen when your child is a baby, toddler, or children, it is very normal and there is nothing to worry about.
You also need to know that not all boys feel mediocre with their erections, there are toddlers or boys who deliberately play their penis to induce an erection (children will not experience ejaculation until puberty and later playing penises this does not aim to get certain sexual satisfaction). There is also a boy who actually feels scared and hysterical with the changes in his penis. These two things are normal in boys and there is nothing you need to worry about.
Some of the more important things for you to see in the baby's genital organs are the size of the penis whether normal or not, the presence or absence of both testicles in the scrotum, as well as the baby's urine hole in the middle or not. If the penis size is much smaller than a child of his age, there is only one testis or no testicles at all in the scrotal sac, or the baby's urinary hole is not in the middle of his penis, take your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
