  • Is it normal for testicles to disappear in infants? Ds is 6 weeks old and yesterday during a diaper change his boys had ascended into his abdomen-he was very cold too from being soaked in spit up. They were back at the next change and have been back all day today. Is this anything anyone has experienced? Do I need to call the ped on this one or is it normal?

  • I think it's pretty normal. Alex's have done that, too. He's a year old now and are usually descended but occasionally (especially after a tub), he gets some serious testicle shrinkage.
Thank you Dopey406!

  • Yup! That's Normal.
    Xavier's do that too. Especially if Im changing him in a cooler room, and after baths they shrink up too.
Thank you lynn012!

  • Sounds very normal, but I'd mention it to the doc next visit.

    There is such a thing as undescended testicles but they are usually always "hidden" in that case.

    Here's an article on it....

  • Normal.
    I've noticed one of my kids has had that a lot lately so I'm going to ask at the next doctor's visit. But for the most part it's normal.
Thank you 3Princes!
