Hello, on October 26 I had my surprise gender baby, a boy! He was born at home with the midwife I saw my entire pregnancy.
Anyway, I took him to a family doctor yesterday. Before she took off the diaper I said he was not circumcised and made sure she would not retract the foreskin. She said that we eventually would want to retract the foreskin or else it would become fused. By the way she said "eventually" I took it to mean not when he's a tiny infant, perhaps when he's years old.
I know that we should not retract the foreskin at all, the boy should do so on his own when he is older. So this is what I believe to be the correct answer, but is there any truth to what she said? Will it become fused to the head of the penis?
I am welcoming the experience of other mothers, but if anybody has any reliable sources they can include that would be appreciated. And someone might recommend I get a new doctor, but I would rather not as I assume circumcision will be some kind of issue no matter where I go. I also just have her so I can take him somewhere if he's sick, I'm not big on asking my doctor for advice on things.
