String Geared

Why wont my baritone ukulele stay in tune?

Just got it yesterday. Put new strings on it, but it wont stay in tune. I tune it, play it for 2 minutes, then the strings are out of tune (flat).

None,
Plastic or nylon strings are going to stretch. Heat, cold, etc. makes all the difference. You'll need to tune it everytime you pick it up. Newer strings will stretch even more till they get stretched a bit. Also, does your ukulele have peg tuners? If they do you'll find a screw on the end of the peg and will need to tighten it a tiny bit. This will keep the peg tight and not allow it to twist back to where it was before you tuned the string. Gear tuners are what you see on a guitar.
Also, it's best to get yourself an electronic tuner http://cgi.ebay.com/CHERUB-CHROMATIC-MATE-CLIP-ON-INSTRUMENT-TUNER-NEW_W0QQitemZ330313142903QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4ce8329277
Have fun,
