My last two boys were home water births who never left my side, and who are intact.
A few months ago I had a preemie who spent time in the NICU, and I was not able to be with him 24/7.
He was born about 3.5 months ago (at 29 weeks along), and would be a month old now if he had been born on his due date.
I noticed yesterday that his foreskin retracts enough (very, very easily) that I can see half or more of the glands.
Does this mean they probably forcibly retracted him in the NICU?
Or is that normal for a newborn?
What should I be doing for his care then at this point?
I am concerned about scaring, adhesions, etc.
Thank you so much for any help.

i tried to cross post this in 'ask the experts' several times, and it wouldn't post.
