My newborn sons foreskin balloons! I couldn't believe what was happening until I stopped to think about it. Quite honestly, it kinda freaked me out until I realized what it was. His foreskin was all swollen up in one spot(like a blister) and it looked kind of yellowish(throught the skin). I asked our doc at the next appt to make sure and she said yes thats what it was! I know how rare it is for a newborns foreskin not to be fully attatched, but my older one is still fully attatched and he is almost three. Imagine, an intactivist getting freaked out momentarily by her own babys foreskin!

Anyone else seen this in a baby so young? Just curious, not freaked out anymore!!!

Take care,
Tara

I don't understand what it was...was it simply ballooning?? If so, I haven't seen this before, but I'm sure it's nothing to be concerned about.
