While taking a "family bath" tonight I noticed that my son's (turns 2 next week) foreskin seemed to be more flabby (for lack of a better term) than usual. The opening also seemed larger than what I normally see, but please note that I don't spend a lot of time checking this out so it might have been this way for quite some time. He's still in diapers so the only time I really pay attention to his penis is when he has fecal matter on it.
Anyway, because the opening seemed larger I did something I've never done - I manipulated it for the first time and noticed that he's almost completely retractable. He could be fully retractable, I don't know, but I stopped long before hitting resistance. Other than his Ped checking his penis during his two months WBV, this is the first time that his foreskin has been touched by anybody.
After a quick Google search I understand that, while not common, this can happen to very young boys. I'm just looking for a little bit of information.
1. Once retractable, it won't fuse back together, right? This just is what it is.
2. Do I still live under the logic to clean is like a finger? I know older boys are told to retract, swish in water to clean and then put the foreskin back, but my son is still very much a baby and certainly can't be responsible for his own hygiene. If possible, I'd like to just go the easy (do nothing) route until he's more in control of his bathing habits.
Thanks for any guidance you may have.
