What is the "normal" age for a baby boy to discover his penis?

My son just found it and now its his favorite toy. He is 8 1/2 months. I know every boy finds it sooner or later, just wondering when.

  • 8 months seems just about right. :-)

  • I guess my son was a little late; he didn't realize he had one until recently, and he's a year old. But now it's his favorite toy. He pulls on it 'til it hurts, then cries, but won't stop pulling on it. And he slaps it too.

  • The find it fairly early on and the curiousity never slows down from then on. Most males even switch modes of thinking from the northbound brain to the southbound brain. Happens all the time. :)

  • My son was about 6 1/ 2 or 7 months old, he would leave it along for several weeks. Hes 9 1/2 months old now and doesnt mess with it that much.

  • before he was born. the 18 week ultrasound we knew he was a boy cause his hand was down there before we could see it.
