My son is almost 6 weeks and I have noticed that his little penis helmet is always covered by the skin around it. Is this normal? Will he grow into it? I am going to talk to the ped tomorrow just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this before.Answer Question

Our son was the same way. I think it's different for every boy. My son had penile issues. They couldn't perform the surgery until after his first birthday. It's hard to explain, but his penis or foreskin was twisted in a weird angle and the urologist just didn't want to take any chances.

matthewscandi, i wish you were there during the procedure to tell me that. the doctor just sent me home saying "he'll be ok" and gave very basic instructions & emphasized the "don't touch it!" i wish i knew to pull it back & apply vaseline to prevent the fusing. too late now though =(
They told me the same shit. My son had to have the skin pulled back at 6months old. I was in tears while they did that. It was horrible.
