Does anyone else's DH/SO cringe when he touches your child's privates? As in cleaning

My DH absolutely freaked out the other night, because his hand accidentally touched our DS's testicles while clothing him after a bath. It not like he was being a perverted. Anybody else's DH do this?

    Maybe its because your dh knows how sensitive that area can be and he gets worried he will hurt him.
    Mine just likes to powder our baby boys diaper area up and says" there whos get fresh balls? you got fresh balls..yes he does..hes got fresh balls" LMBO!!!

  • Ok, I had 3 kids when I met my DH. He had one, but only has her every other weekend. So, he was so not used to all these body parts floating around our house lol. When we had our sons together, he said he felt like a perv touching them in private areas in any way. I told him just because he grew up with freaks, and abuse, did not make him that way. He now is over it, I "gave him permission" to give himself permission to be a normal dad and do normal things with his kid, such as cleaning a bottom be it a diapered one or a little tushie needing assistance in the tub or potty. Let's face it baby tushies are soft, and squishy and cute, and tempting to touch lol...I am not going to allow society to make a loving mothers pinch on the tushie into some form of perversion. I am glad DH got over himself, he seems to enjoy parenting more now that he realises he is not a perv, just a daddy.

  • Yes! My hubby refuses to change or bath the kids for this very reason.

  • My husband used to be hysterical about it with our daughters! And he never ever would bathe them at all. He isn't like that with our son...but I'm a little weirded out when he has babywood...

  • My DH was fine helping with our daughters' diapers and bathing until they got to be about 2 or so...then he didn't want to help with it anymore, and he stopped being okay with them seeing him getting out of the shower and stuff then too.

  • He'll change diapers, but he makes sure that he does not directly touch anything. Like a wipe has to stay between his hands and our DS's balls. This is our first child, so maybe he'll grow out of it.
