Hi my son Ashton is just over 2 yrs old n starting from yesterday morning, he constantly has erections, he still in nappies n keeps complaining that its sore cause it can not stand up probably due to his nappies been in the way so I have to pull down his nappy n wait for it to go down, he doesn’t complaining its sore once it goes down n its not red or infected n he has no trouble peeing ,, he even woke up several time during the night complaining it was sore n I had to once again take his nappy off n wait for it to go down again,,

Totally normal, little boys cant control it and once cold air hits it up it goes. When you put a new diaper on just gently push it in the down postion, dont put it in the up position because when he pees it will shoot out the top (I speak from experience.) So yes its totally normal heck you may even catch him playing with it. His body is functioning the way it should.

I am not sure if it is normal or not but i noticed that my son was doing the same thing so when i put his diapers on i pushed his penis up while putting on the diaper i have noticed that helped a little bit but now that he is potty trained he doesn't seem to say anything about it. you can also talk to your pediatrician about it also.
