My 8 month old son is circumsized, and his penis retracts, is this a problem, or will it correct itself?

he is a little chubby, and the doctor says this is why, but I wasnt sure if they didnt want to admit a mistake.

  • It is normal...all three of my boys were so fat and had the same issues. As long as it is kept clean you'll have no issues...don't worry!
