Took my 9 month old to the Dr. today and as I was watching my three year old she was busy checking him out, she has never retracted before so I wasn't hovering, I looked over and it looked like she was pulling his foreskin back. I yelped "no" and put my hand on my son. I was really flustered and shocked when I got up the courage I said " Everything I've read says not to retract." My Dr. said "that's right, you don't want to force it" But then what was she doing? My son was happy and smiling the whole time. His penis doesn't look irritated. I have never messed with his foreskin since there has never been a need. The skin she exposed looked pink and wet, like it belonged inside the body, did she retract? Is it possible to move the foreskin around without forcible retraction at nine months? Should I email her information and express my concerns? (She's been my doc since I was born and I feel like she's family so I'm not going to just ditch her, I'd rather educate) I'm just so confused as to what happened.
