new mom to intact son here.
when ds was born, there was no real discussion between dh and i about whether or not to circumcise him. seemed like a no brainer to keep him intact.
now, here we are (ds is 19 days old) and i thought, "is there something i should know about an uncircumcised penis"? so, is there something we should be doing (or not doing) to care for it? this is our first son, i don't have a penis (obviously) and dh is circumcised, so this is all new to us.
also, how important is it to find a intact-friendly pediatrician? a quick scan of the threads here made it appear that many of you have issues with pediatricians who are unfamiliar with intact penises. ds has already had three ped visits and i honestly didn't notice what she did (or did not do) to/with this penis.
mother is a verb
I GOT MY !!!
A thread you might want to check out http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?t=764732 it talks about things you might see and if it is something to worry about or not.
If you can find an intact friendly ped that is great I personally dont have one and it caused issues in the past with them trying to retract ds but I fixed that by not allowing them touch touch his penis any more. It was better than being on guard all the time worried he would be hurt by them.
