    Wonder if someone could give me an answer to a question I have-I know its normal for baby boys to get erections,but just lately Harvey has been screaming,sounds like he is in pain, whenever it happens...should I take him to the doctors?or is it just a phase?

    He was screaming,and I took his nappy off thought it might be uncomfy for him with the nappy on...but he still carried on crying,took ages to calm down.
    They won't pull him about if I take him up there will they?:cry: x

    Not too sure, but I'd think they'd have to have a look? And anyways, I bet it's better done now when he can't remember rather than him being older and being told to drop them :blush:

    You should have seen my face when I first saw it :shock: naively I didn't even think about that sort of stuff happening while they're so young, but when its out...he has a fiddle :wacko:

    Apparently girls rub themselves too...I've got that to look forward to too! I can just imagine shopping with them, Jacob fiddling with his winkle and Emma rubbing herself on the seat. Hmmm...:argh:

    Do you have to tell her why you need to see the doctor?

    I'd just say that your LO has a problem with his winkle and needs to see the doctor. If she asks what, just say "are you a doctor, as its quite personal?"

    Are you booking an emergency appointment or just a general one? I find they usually ask whats wrong when its an emergency appointment but don't bother when its an everyday one :flower:

    :hugs: I don't have a little boy but my cousin did have a problem with his willy, his foreskin was too small and he used to cry when he got an erection too. He just had to be circumcised, but he was little so he didn't remember. Hope the Drs either come up with a solution or make you feel better x

    Hey honey! :)
    that does sound strange, it must defiantly hurt him! the receptionist doesn't have any right to ask you so if she does just say it's private!

    Let us know what happens :) xx

    sounds like his forskin is too tight and its causing pain.

    the receptionist has no right to ask you any questions and if she does just say its personal and only to be discussed with someone with a medical degree!

    Hey, as a doctor, I can tell you, you should definitely take him in, although it will most likely be a referral to a specialist, as the gp won't really do anything about it.

    If the receptionist is pushy, just say he's in pain frequently and you need him to see the doctor about it. That makes the criteria for an emergency appointment with most gps, and avoids the embarrassment.

    Hope you get it sorted soon!
