    Default Boy Bits...

    What's the go with boy bits? My DS is nearly 18 months and when we last saw the CHN (about 10 months ago) she said that his foreskin was tight and that it needed to be checked by the doctor. So I took him to the doctor and at which point DS had a lump under the foreskin near the end, it was white in colour, doctor said it was normal and would go away on its own, no issues at all. The lump is gone now and I don't like to check but his foreskin does still seem quite tight? He is my one and only boy so I'm not sure what is considered normal. Does it take a few years for it to loosen?

    I'm def no expert (my boy is 2.5yrs) but I was under the impression that it is tight in the early years and they will play with / tug on / stretch it out themselves.

    Hi my step son is 2 1/2 and about a year ago we noticed when he urinated his foreskin would balloon I had never seen this with my older son so we took him to the doctor to have it checked and he was diagnosed with phimosis (tightening of the foreskin) it is really common is boys and sometimes will fix itself there are mild and severe cases my step sons case was severe but he needed treatment of elastin cream which we had to apply to the tight foreskin to help it loosen a bit. I would get it checked but I would not worry to much as I said if is really common and easily fixed most boys foreskin don't develop until school age or older but better to be safe and get it checked for piece of mind

    Thanks ladies! That puts my mind at ease, no trapping of the urine at this stage so I'd say he is all normal.

    Good to hear boys are so hard lol I have just had the opposite with my ds 2 he is 14 months and when he has no nappy on he is constantly playing with his penis he made it bleed the other day was very scary he just have pulled the skin back to far, I thought he was urinating blood but luckily not! The joys of raising boys lol
