    Hi Ashwini,
    Congrats on new arrival.
    My son also cried when he passes urine. Diaper irritates the baby esp baby boy. Now My son cries if i put him on diaper while going out. My paed advised not to use diaper much as it leads to urinary infections. Whenever I go and tell this kind problem, first he insist me that not to use diaper. As others suggested use cloth diaper. After he passes urine clean the area with soft cloth dipped in warm water and put powder. I did this for my son.

    @nashwini I have used diapers continuously. Have you touched the inside of the diaper after 2-3 minutes of LO passing urine. It is absolutely dry. You can keep a paper and see. I used Pampers Swaddlers with wetness indicator.

    Your LO seems to be happy when being left free (no diapers, no langotis). But that may not be feasible. Just give him some free time.

    For the first 2 months, I used to change about 12-14 diapers a day. This settled down after the first 2 months. So your LO is also following similar pattern.

    The diapers in India are different from the ones in US. I have used both. LO was feeling very uncomfortable with the Indian diapers and wanted it to be changed immediately.

    Ashwin, congrats. I have used diapers since the day she was born. I think he is feeling inconvenient with the brand of diapers. I use huggies with wetness indicator. I am assuming you are wiping him with wet wipes (i use huggies wet wipes) every time you change him. If you are not already doing so, get the penaten non-medicated diaper protection cream. After you wipe him with wet wipe, apply the cream generously on him diaper area (including penis, dont pull back the foreskin though, if he is not circumcised) and then put the diaper on. It's supposed to keep the wetness away from skin and prevent the rashes. If he is crying due to wetness, this might help.
    Also, if he has gone too much poo, make sure his genitals are properly washed/wipe with no lingering poo residue. I am sure you are doing this, just double check anyway.

    Like I said, change the brand of diapers and see and make sure to use wet wipes and penaten; if you are not already doing it. I think for the first 4 weeks I was changing diaper after every feed because she was going poo.

    OP, I dont think diapers have anything to do with why your baby is crying.
    My DD also used to cry for first 2 months when she was about to pass urine. She is constantly in diapers, and that hasnt affected her body. I just make sure to keep changing her diapers once every 3 hours (so that is 8 diapers per day.. 15 is a little on the high side ).
    Now at 4 months, i dont change diaper during the night time (from 7 PM - 7 AM) as she sleeps through nicely except to feed somtimes in between.

    Its just a phase and will pass soon.

    Hi Ashwini,

    Congrats on your baby boy.

    Please check the urine flow and color- If it is normal ( free flowing without dripping/ not yellowish ) nothing to worry dear.

    make sure that baby takes sufficient feeds.

    As for as cloth diapers, can go for soft- jalla ( gauze type) fabric- it is soft to the skin.

    Happy motherhood.

    Hi ashwini,

    The usage of more diapers at this stage is very common .. Make sure you have castor oil at home.. Every morning just wet your fingers in the oil and apply it on your baby's centre portion of the head gently.. Do it every day..in the morning when uour baby wakes up.. And if he cry's unusually during urinating immediately apply castrol oil in his belly button and massage it gently and apply little on his penis too.. This will give a lot of comfort to your little one and they stop crying.. My son ashwin when he was like a month old had this problem for "n" number of times and this procedure really worked..
    My hugs to your little bundle of joy

    Regards
    Vidhya

    Do not worry, this is very common. My DS makes grunting noise and rolls his eyes each time he has to go potty. I use cloth diapers during the day and diapers at night/before a long nap, because just like yours, even he cannot stand wet diapers. I dont think this has to be because of usage of diapers, but my paed told me that their systems and controls are still developing and will resolve on its own.

    Ashwini,

    As pinki said just check you baby foreskin..my son also faced the same problem when he was 6 months old..Please clean your baby's private part with warm water atleast twice in a day..Don't apply powder in private part.While bathing him just move his foreskin and wash the private part thoroughly with water ..if he urinate in drops, or he cries while urinating or it is in dark yellow colour check with doctor..All this are very common in babies so don't stress yourself..Enjoy your motherwood

    Hello all,
    Thank you each & everyone for your valuable advice.I have checked his urine several times ...its a pale yellow color which clearly indicates there is no infection.Even i have done the complete urine examination & reports were normal.
    I have changed to langoties instead of diapers.I have observed him from the last day,he has not cried like previous.Looks like its working for him & slowly he is getting used to it also.In the night hours iam shifting him to diapers..Even i am cleaning his private part with cotton cloth dipped in warm water whenever he urinates which i used to do anyway .I have checked his private part also..me and my mom did not find any problem with his foreskin..but definitely cross check with the doctor on my next visit.

    Your all information were really useful for me.thanks a lot once again

    Ash
