Well, this is weird for me, being a resident here...
Last night, I noticed for the first time ever that Miles (4.5 months) has a tiny little peehole. When his foreskin is relaxed, it looks all bunched up and like a normal foreskin, but when I gently pulled it up a little, I saw that the hole is tiny and off-center (if he were looking down at his own penis, it would be on the left, like 8 o'clock, and a little towards the top. Where the hole should be looks sort of smooth, maybe a little like a bubble, but not infected or red or anything. He has no trouble peeing and soaks many diapers a day, and I have never heard him cry or be upset, but I also have never seen him pee without a diaper on, so I don't know what the stream looks like.
Anyway, I emailed Frank in a panic, and he said it is fine, but I am worried that this will not open up. I guess I have to just wait and see, but it still worries me. It looks like the second set of pictures labeled "true phimosis" seen here: http://www.mja.com.au/public/issues/...w10610_fm.html
So please reassure me. I have an appt for a well-baby on Tuesday, and my ped has been very foreskin-friendly in the past, but ds1 didn't have this. His penis was always slightly retractable (I could always see a little bit of the glans.) I don't know if I should point it out to her, and then get on the "will this urologist be foreskin-friendly" train, or if I should just let it go. Is there some little slit they could make to make it bigger, or would that damage the preputial sphincter? Obviously you all know I would not have him circ'ed b/c of this but I am wary of doctors.
