If he retracts himself, it is OK, but I doubt that he is in that stage already. But no two boys are alike. Usually it takes a long time and is a slow process, that's why it is so cruel when doctors or anyone else does it suddenly.
When my grandson was between two and three and we let him run naked all summer long, I watched him shove his penis into himself as though he was going to make it disappear lots of times. Or he would twist it and twist it as though he were winding up some toy. Soemtimes I would see him stretch the foreskin up to his belly button and hold it there forever.
At times I wondered if he was going to hurt himself, but he didn't even notice what he was doing. One hand was always holding on to his penis while the other hand was used for more practical purposes (like holding a toy, food, etc.)
You would have thought he only had one hand! LOL
But, he never had a problem with his foreskin and is now 6 yrs. old. (He retracted himself in the tub when he was about 5.)
I guess that's the way Mother Nature herself designed it and our boys are just following their instincts.
Let them do what comes naturally!
OOPS! I just read that you said he does retract himself. He is very young to do that but, like I said, no two boys are alike. He is his own man!
