Question for a friend

Hey y'all I have a question,

My cousin just started using cloth on her 4mo and so far she's loving it but the one thing that seems odd is that almost every time she changes him he pees. Like the second the cloth is no longer touching him he pees. This apparently never happened in disposables. Any words of wisdom as to why this is happening?

Some boys just do that, especially if it's cold. I would pull back the diaper a smidge, then recover so he isn't spraying her. It will get better as he gets older. Is it colder in their home than when they were using disposables?

That makes total sense! They live in Michigan where it is plenty cold. I am sure the cloth just keeps his diaper area much warmer then disposables so it's more of a cold shock when she undoes his diaper. You're a genius.

I agree. My boys peed every time I took off their diaper. Even DD did it for a while.

Yeah just be prepared to cover. Neither of my kids did it often but you hear about it alot -- its not cloth diaper specific. I company actually invented a Pee Pee Tee Pee to combat this issue, but I'd just use the same or another cloth diaper.

EC. It's possible that the baby doesn't want to sit in a wet diaper. He's aware and would rather pee as soon as it's being changed so he stays dry. Check out GoDiaperFree they have podcasts.

I know it sounds nuts! Each baby is an individual. If it makes her life easier, it's worth a try, lol! How are you k?!

Re: Question for a friend

That is a good point. That pee is going to end up in the next diaper if it wasn't released there.. its potty time.

It doesn't have to go any farther than that right now, just out of the diaper and on a little potty.

I'm pretty sure this is universal and not linked to cloth. My daughter did it and me and all my siblings did too.
