    I asked my MCHN at 18 months check up too because I wasn't sure and she said just to leave it, it doesn't need to be touched and even them just fiddling with it in a bath cleans it.

    No, never EVER touch it!

    Boys fiddle with their penises and eventually retract it themselves. DS's retracted for the first time last year when he was 4.5, he was fiddling and all of a sudden...voila! Now that his retracts I have taught him that it's important to pull it back to clean with just water each day so he does that in the shower or bath every day.
