    Default 2 year old playing with himself

    DS is 2 and he just loves his pen!s which i know is normal. However, he is uncircumcised and all the boys in my family are circumcised so I'm not sure if it's normal that when he does play with his pen!s, the whole head comes out of the foreskin. I thought you weren't meant to retract it so I'm wondering if he has done damage to it, or if it's normal. It certainly doesn't seem to bother him but I find it a little disconcerting, not being well acquainted with many pen!ses!

    TIA.

    Its normal. The foreskin will retract only when it is able to. Now that it does, get him to wash it in the bath or shower. As in just run it under the water.

    I would also say normal, my ds is nearly 5, while it does retract, it's not quite all the way.
    Our pead said it was fine, she says its not the same as if you force it, him playing won't cause any harm because he won't hurt himself- especially in that area.
    However with washing, DS used to wash while sitting in the bath, he ended up twice getting a lump in there which was apparently some sort of infection as a result of build up from the soap/dirt that got in there while bathing, we were told to do it while he showers not while he is actually sitting in the water.

    We only have a shower so that's not a problem for now. Glad to hear it's normal. I guess it was inevitable given how much he just loves playing with it!

    My boys are uncut and I was just told that them playing with it and pulling it back is actually good. They will only do it til it hurts so are unlikely to damage it, but it helps with it all developing and stuff.

    It was certainly disconcerting when my DS1 started doing it - I was sure he was going to do some sort of damage!
    But as PP have said, it's normal.
