Does/Did anyone have a BIG boy... and notice his... penis went away?

So, he did have a visible penis at one point... and at his four month visit the doctor had to kind of push back his..I don't know.... "Area fat" to check it out and said it was fine. It since has crawled even FURTHER in... and looks like there's just a set of... you know... hangin' there. Lol! No penis what so ever. He pees fine... and doesn't complain at all. Is it just cuz he's a chubby guy?!

  • It's because of him being a chubby guy. Grown men who are obese actually have the same problem. I am not saying your baby is obese. Just that the extra fat in that area is "hiding" his little man. It's okay though, he will grow out of it and it's totally normal.

  • I think we had a problem too but with being fat and he might have small penis as he gets older it will grow and peek more don't worry it will show up espiaccle when he can crawl then he will loose some baby fat as long as he can pee YOUr good

  • Thank you ladies! I didn't think anything was wrong... until it COMPLETELY disappeared for his bath the other day!

  • yes, it's a fat pocket. my boy's not even big, but he has a fat pocket there and his penis hides. just make sure you push back the fat to clean the penis with every diaper change and during baths. if he is circumsized, the skin can grow back together if you don't gently pull it back often.
