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,,

2 of my kids are boys, and this is very normal! the first time i noticed was when my first son and i were still in the hospital and i freaked out but the nurses said that it was okay. my oldest had also complained about it being sore sometimes, so i asked his daddy about this (yes, mommies are clueless to some things!!) and my husband says that, like all muscles, it can get cramped and that he needs to "stretch" it. so i had him teach our son how to stretch. it was a very interesting lesson :)

normal. try some cotton training pants so he has room or larger diapers for sleep. the average male has numerous erections thru the day and about 5 times more while they sleep. it's lifelong.

Normal after waking in the morning, I have three boys. If it is more than after he wakes up in the morning, you should discuss it with your pediatrician.
