I found crystals on my baby during diapering, what should I do?

I've spotted clear crystals on my baby's scrotum for the last few days. Should I be worried?

What you're describing is most likely coming from your baby's diaper -- and nothing to worry about. Diapers are filled with tiny balls of gel that give them their absorbent quality, but sometimes when a diaper gets particularly saturated (or tears slightly) the gel balls escape and stick to the baby. The next time you see these little crystals, just remove them gently with a wipe.
