Oh my goodness
... I have 3 sons and had no clue about any of this! I feel like such a horrible mother
In my defense... I had my first when I was only 16 and my second only 13 months later... but I still wish I knew! All 3 boys are
The one positive thing here is that my boys have had the same ped since they were babies and I do not recall her ever touching the penis. She does go in their diaper and feels around but never touches the penis...
Th same goes for my little one... he had his well baby not long ago and she did the same thing (just look and feel around)
Now my question is.... when is it ok for my 9 & 10 yo to do this on their own w/o hurting themselves? When they were smaller I would have them gently pull the foreskin back at bath time to clean it.... did I cause any harm? Is it too late?
This is what my family told me to do (DH wasn't much help because he was circ)
My youngest is only 2mo and I don't want to make the same mistake 2x
