Dear MDC,

My 2y-4m old has begun to balloon when he urinates. I'm so excited! The process of separation is now becoming apparent!

That's so cool! I have to admit I will sigh a tiny little sigh of relief when my DS starts to retract.

Because of not being familar with the intact male you should have seen the look on my face the first times I noticed this. Then it all clicked together. Yay!

Chanley- All it means is that urine fills the space between the foreskin and the glans before going out the hole at the tip of the foreskin. The foreskin puffs out a little

If a man has phimosis, the balooning would be one of the symptoms of having a very tight opening to the foreskin,

but young boys who have snug foreskin openings do no have phimosis so their balloning is not an indicator of a problem... rather it is a outward visual clue that his mom can see that the sepration process between the foreskin and glans is done/almost done without actually retracting him (if his foreskin opening is still snug -that could really hurt him to try to retract and see if there were any adhesions thee) So his mom is doing a good job of just sitting back and obsrving outward signs that things are moving along without prying.

I have heard stories of schoolboys who were able to do balooning games (you know- a pising contest) but beyond that- I do not know the object.

My son (he's5) somtimes the opening of his foreskin and his meatus are not alligned because of how his underpants were smushing- since I have never instructed him to retract to pee- so when he starts to pee it might baloon for a second until the pressure finds the exit and things get lined up.

Love Sarah

Thanks Sarah for explaining it.

Seeing that ds just turned two a few months ago, I was not even beginning to look for signs of retractability! I only noticed when he decided to stand at the regular toilet on occasion (on tippy-toes, it's quite the sight, lol)
