Whenever DS is naked, for baths or diaper changes, he reaches down and grabs and pulls at his pen!s. Hard. I mean really really hard. Half the time, he pulls so hard he starts crying.<br><br>
I don't have a problem with him exploring himself, but I am concerned about him hurting himself, or, worse, damaging himself in some way.<br><br>
Anyone else's DS do this? If so, what, if anything, do you do?

yep, DS does this, I mostly try and keep his hands out of there 'cause it is hard to change a diaper with his hands in his pants. Or, out the diaper cream, or just dirtiness. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I just make sure his nails are clipped.

Yes, totally normal. I have things to hand him for when I am changing a poop diaper, so he does not get all messed up.

Yes, stretches is reeeeaaaallly far, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">. Make sure his nails are clipped so he doesn't scratch his peepee!

I love the look he gets on his face like "OH MY GOD! Did you guys know this was down here? Awesome!" Yes, it's his favorite toy. And it stretches almost to his chest!<br><br>
Yesterday, i was computering and I hear dh & ds in the bedroom. Apparently after a particularly poopie diaper, dh put ds in the crib to contain him while spraying the poo. DH came back in and ds was standing playing w/ his bipper, and then proceeded to pee a little puddle on the floor. A minute later after cleaning the pee up, I hear that he is now sitting w/ his legs hanging out between the bars playing with it some more.<br><br>
The funniest was the day he stripped his diaper off and was standing up against his big mirror pulling on it and looking at it. I couldn't stop thinking of that scene from Boogie Nights! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/biglaugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="laugh">:

Yep, add my DS to the list <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> He pulls on it sometimes, and sometimes just likes to hold it. Like PPs have suggested, just keep his nails trimmed. Only once or twice has my DS pulled so hard that it obviously hurt him, so I guess he figured out not to pull so hard anymore.<br><br>
The only problem I have with it is that he inevitably gets his penis pointing up in the diaper instead of down, and he ends up with a wet waistband and/or shirt.

Yep, our boy does this as well<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Like others have mentioned I try to keep a toy or something else close on hand when changing diapers to keep him otherwise occupied<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Yep, mine actually grabs the whole package in his fist sometimes. He has never pulled so hard that he cries though, fortunately.<br><br>
He's nakeybutt a lot too, as we are partially ECing.

Yep he will pull that think to his knees or up to his bellybutton. When he pulls it up he goes 'SHUTTLE!! TAKEOFF!' Priceless. I think it helps with retraction.

My baby girl does this... only not to her penis. :p She grabs the skin down there, or just feels around. She always does it with a super concentrated look on her face, like she is trying to figure out what is going on down there. It is definitely problematic when trying to change a poopy diaper.

I wonderd if this was what the thread was about<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Yes, DS grabs his penis and pulls onit and grins... I've asked DH what he thinks, and he says DS's crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> Doesn't remeber it ever NOT hurting... so... who knows. Little boys are crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

My son does this, but so far hasn't hurt himself (to my knowledge). I'm always impressed how far it stretches! He loves his penis . . . since he was about a year or so, he's giggled every time I've said the word!

my ds1 did this and i'm sure ds2 will too. ds1 always yells "i point my penis down to pee" very gleefully in public places<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

My son does it every time we change a diaper. Personally, the way he pulls on it, I may never have grandkids <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Another vote for totally normal. I think all boys do this. It's self-limiting - they aren't likely to hurt themselves, and as a PP mentioned, it can help with the natural separation of foreskin from glans to aid retraction.<br><br>
(just as a reminder to newbies, only the owner of the penis should even attempt retraction!)

Same here! He will learn soon enough that when he pulls TOO hard it hurts. Probably will never learn to stop playing with it though! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
