Me= crunchy mama to one rambunctious toddler, born on October 1, 2009. And one sweet little baby born January 19, 2012.
I don't know how to change the main title... but... it dawned on me that DS started "playcare" (daycare 3 days a week for 3 hrs) just when the irritation started. It took until this weekend to do the math on that (bad mommy!). I just never considered...
So today when I took him in, I asked the teacher, you don't retract him when you're changing his diaper do you?
She responded that she's only changed poopy diapers on him so he's normally messy and she's been taught to pull back on the penis a bit. She said she's knowledgeable about intact penises and doesn't feel like she's retracted him, but yet, she pulls back a bit to wipe the tip... to get to the tip.
WELL.... if you're getting to something under the foreskin, you're retracting!
I immediately flipped out and questioned her repeatedly - she swears that she didn't pull back far on the skin. And when she brought in her superior, they discussed at length that they don't retract, but to clean, they pull just a teeny bit to get to the tip.
Um... I know I've never "pulled back", whether a lot or a little or AT ALL on his penis. I wipe what I see. period.
So... it sounds like to me, now figuring in the perfect timing, that they've done something to cause the irritation? The irritation is gone, and I've made it 100% clear that they are not to touch his penis PERIOD. And they apologized and were totally nice and accommodating and really felt like they hadn't retracted him -- but....
what do you think?
I will be extra careful about this when my own boys start daycare.
