Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Boys Pee

Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Boys Pee

Everybody pees, but baby boys pee more. Or, at least it seems that way. Maybe because they can't control the urine and it doesn't just run down their legs, but shoots across the changing table, up in the air and sprays the unsuspecting.

It doesn't matter if they catch a draft while you're changing their diaper or if they're just getting in or out of the tub — the shower begins. And, it pays no attention to the fact that you just put them in a fresh diaper, are in an incredibly long line at Costco, or having a conversation with someone that you've run into on the street and can feel your sweatshirt being to saturate.

My son has peed around his diaper so many times, it doesn't faze me anymore. I say around because I don't mean through, though that also happens on occasion. Often times, I rush to the car or a public restroom to find that his diaper is completely dry! And, no matter how carefully I pull the diaper tabs so the sides overlap, my lil houdini still manages to make it escape.
