Pictures of uncircumsized babies and toddlers?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
While researching I find lots of pics online of uncirced adults, so I know what is normal there. But what about infants and toddlers. My son is 2 and intact, everything seems fine, but sometimes I wonder. Especially when I hear people talking about someone forcibly retracting their sons. I can not see any possible way that you could retract Ds, with out causing extreme pain and damage. The tip of his foreskin is just a small hole, nothing that could possibly slip over the head of his penis. so are there any links to what an intact toddler should look like? Does my son sound normal?

my ds is the same way, slathough he is now 6
we had one incident where it was a possible problem--got a slight infection that was healed quickly--doc said to watch it over the years, that it should be retractable on it's own
even if it doesn't, and requires circ, i will chose to use some of the newer creams that loosen the opening rather than cut my boy

no probs since i think you're baby will be fine

My ds2's hole is so tiny. But this is normal and it doesn't need to open up until he is ready to have sex! He pees totally normally and I can actually see the little muscle open and close.

Thanks for the responses, I feel better. I am so glad to have somewhere like this to ask questions. Unfortunately I know more about the intact penis than our pediatrician so I can't trust her for info.

I have experienced this with a doctor too, it really is the most irritating thing in the World! They are meant to be informing us but it often goes the other way around when it comes to foreskin... I once had one tell me a circumcision was the -only- cure to my phimosis. :

He did not even have the decency to apologise for his ignorance when I informed him of the alternatives. Never went back to him.

Your son is probably fine. Unless there are any problems then how it looks is not too important.
