I'm guessing they must... never heard of or seen one before. I was lucky, my son never pee'd on me, got my wife several times though. As soon as he was born a nurse warned me about this, so I always took precautions, LOL.

Believe me when I was "baptized" by one of my boy babies and had my long hair and newly applied makeup drenched I learned to cover their privates when opening their diapers........I think that it's the expectation that gets them all excited...........so their little hoses were kept covered until I had the new diaper on......got to be pretty adept at it, too....never got drenched again.......:)

Almost beat your record but not quite - got together in 95, engaged in 97 and married in 06.

Good for you, Saphie, for holding out!!!!!! Only when my daughter finally had enough of her old boyfriend who absolutely refused to get help for his depression did he beg her to get married as she had had enough....by then it was too late....for him......she's moved on.....

When James's daughter was born she had to stay in the nursery for quite awhile (another baby had meningitis and there was a mess-up and all the babies had to stay for observation, spinal-taps, etc.). James would go in and see her, change her diapers, etc. Well, there was a baby boy near her bassinet. His diapers were always dry, but his mattress pad was always wet. The nurses actually accused James of tampering with his diaper. Then one day they found out what was happening. Apparently this little guy was pretty well endowed, and he was peeing out the top of his diaper, missing it altogether. I can't remember for sure, but I think James said the nurse got a little wet during that episode!

I remember babysitting a one-month-old boy when I was a teenager. Just as I reached behind me for a diaper he started peeing. I grabbed a diaper and just dropped it on top of him until he finished (it was a cloth diaper) and started fresh with a new one.

When my daughter was being potty trained, I was getting her ready for bed one night. She was lying on my bed. I undid her diaper and said, "It's time to go potty." She was so tired that she took me very literally and peed right then and there!

It is a little cover that goes over the boy so that if he does go then it is contained somewhat.

My MIL, who had three boys, told me once she used a washcloth for that, and it worked fine. Jeeze, the stuff they can get people to buy these days
