  • it usually is fully retractable afround 4-5years. But I assume it gradually loosens until that point. Sometimes it is retractable sooner though especially if you have a penis grabber like my son lol.

  • lol foreskins are attached to the penis head. lol... no ones is retractable at birth. thats why you cannot clean under it for a couple of years. i was just wondering when other mothers noticed there sons forskin retracting.

  • My son is 5 months and his retracts a tiny bit already. The doctor checked it at his 4 month appointment. I'm not sure when it fully does...
