Forgive my ignorance here...while I read a great deal about the topic of circumcision in generally, I find myself kind of clueless about the whole retraction deal and the intact penis' appearance in general. I am hesitant to google very much, because I am afraid of what I might end up with! :)
I think my 2-year-old is starting to retract. I had thought this was something that would happen much later, and I read that the average age is somewhere around 10, but that really any age is okay as long as it is not forcible? He is doing it himself, repeatedly, and I don't think it is fully retracted, though honestly I don't know what that would look like!!! In any case, he is definitely not causing himself any pain, it seems to be the opposite, and he is getting quite a kick out of it. We are still potty training, so he is naked a good deal. Basically, he is pulling the foreskin back and you can see the tip/head of the penis coming out. My 5-year-old dd was asking me what he was doing and was actually a little concerned about this new appearance to his penis, so I thought I better get my act together and see if experienced mamas could help me out!
Is this "normal" meaning not a cause for concern in a 2-1/2 year old? Is there anything that needs to be done cleaning wise? Anything else I should know or a reputable website where I can see what should be going on without running across anything else objectionable?
