So my little guy had his 2 month check up today. The last couple appointments I told the providers that he saw not to touch his penis in any way... they didn't... So, on to today- my husband went with me. During the exam he was on one end of the table and I was on the other; by the baby's head. I was comforting him while the doctor checked his heart and lungs and belly, he didn't like the cold stethoscope. Next thing I know she has his diaper off and pulled back on his foreskin! It happened SO quick while I was still by my baby's face talking to him! If I had seen her touching him before it was already done I would have said NO. My husband didn't say anything! He said it was so quick! I was so caught up with some other concerns today I totally spaced on telling her not to check him there!
Anyway, I'm not sure if this counts as forcible retraction or what... She barely pulled his skin back at all... just the tiniest bit and only his urethra was exposed and just for a second. He didn't cry or seem uncomfortable at all and his penis looks totally fine, same as always. No swelling or redness. I would have never consented to this, but I'm feeling like it probably didn't cause any damage? But I've heard so many horror stories about forcible retraction I'm still a little nervous! Though I would think if she damaged him he would have cried or something!
Next time the diaper stays ON. But what was done today is done, and he seems fine, but I don't know...
