Red face Baby boys and erections

So lately I've noticed my son (10mo) getting erections pretty frequently. I know this is perfectly normal, but it seems like they almost always happen while he's nursing. I know it's not a sexual thing, since he's obviously too young, but I was just wondering if any of you other mamas have noticed the same thing? A lot of times it seems to happen while I'm trying to nurse him to sleep, and it seems to keep him from falling asleep (not surprisingly). Anyone else have this experience and/or any insight? This has only been going on for a week or so, and I only notice it cause he starts grabbing at it. I suppose it could have started earlier and I just never noticed since he's always in diapers.

I've found that my DS having an erection often means he needs to pee.

How do you know he has an erection while you are nursing? Doesn't he have a diaper on if you are nursing him to sleep?

Wait till he's older and discovers he can control it

DS thinks it's quite funny- "look, mama! Make it Goin'up!"

My boys had morning stiffies and when they had to pee. I think of babies sort of like little puppies in that when you feed them it triggers their bodies to pee and poo before settling down to nap.

Re: Baby boys and erections

The parasympathetic nervous system, which controls our rest and digest reflexes, also controls male erection. Feel comforted knowing he is happy and ready for sleep
