Thank you so much Mama's for posting this info. I was confused when my DS was born because my DH is circumcised (poor guy) and my aunts all came after me telling me to start blowing on the tip of his penis and pulling back the skin. Can you believe it? I got a terrible feeling in my stomach when I heard crap like that. I even had a neighbour tell me that you can "train" the foreskin to retract permanently if you start when they are very young. What-ever!!!!
I am so glad that I was lucky enough to have a midwife a) that forced us to concider not circ'ing our son, and b) told me to care for his penis as I would his elbow... do nothing special.
I never thought about the fact that the MIL could be retracting, but will have that talk with her tomorrow. I have no problem slapping hands away!
Thanks again ladies!
