I feel really bad for the babies that have their skin pulled back :-/

CleAning a circ'ed penis is often more easy then a vagina!

I have a Computer, a vibrator, & Chocolate..Why should I leave the house? ;-)

If shes talking about her sons penis, this anon has to be trousermouse. Shes obsessed with her sons junk.


Quoting renijazzysmom:

Why do you feel the need to share intimate details about your sons penis to a group of moms. You did this because you knows it's a hot topic--a never ending debate. But seriously I don't care about your kids body parts.

Well good luck. I have girls so thankfully haven't had to deal with this.

Quoting Jennyanne322:

Well that's how 3 doctors told me how to clean it. Sorry, but I'll believe the person that went to med school over someone I have never met before.

Quoting LoveMyBugz:

No you do not retract an intact penis to clean! Premature retraction causes all sorts of issues. You wipe like a finger. It would only be retracted to clean once it's naturally retractable. and by the time that is the case, the boy *should* be old enough to clean it himself.




Quoting Jennyanne322:

Nope. You have to slide the foreskin back and wipe the penis tip with a q-tip. I found it pretty gross to do. He would of ha his circomsized in the happiest, but we were only there for a little over 24 hours.





Quoting cherrywaves21:

I'm confused as to how you clean it? You wipe it off just like a circ'd penis.








Quoting Jennyanne322:

My son had to wait two months to have his done cause of the way the appointments and OR space fell. I was so excited and couldn't wait for it to happen also. I hated cleaning in. Wish him and you the best of luck.


Either you misunderstood, or you have stupid Drs-you do know that half of all Drs graduate at the bottom of their class right? Perhaps you need to seek out better ones-or research where they went to med school. My kids ped went to Yale and  Columbia.  And he never told me that-and neither did his female partner.

Oh and their practice doesn't DO circumcisions. So many of their patients would be intact.

I'm sorry you had to wait. I am not a circ nazi, but why even do it at this point?

Quoting Anonymous:

When he was born they were going to do it but his shaft was still attached to the scrotum. So we had to wait for it to grow and detach. He has been cleared for a few months but wanted to wait til he was closer to a year old because of anesthesia




Quoting jonellg:

why would he have to wait?

Quoting Jennyanne322:

Lol I live in NYC. We have probably some of the best hospitals and doctors in the world.
One of those doctors was a peds urologist, one being my sons doctor, and the other being the doctors and nurses that showed me how to clean it when he was born.


Quoting kiminsean:

Maybe in the backwoods somewhere. A REAL up-to-date, board certified Pediatrician told me and MANY other parents differently.

Quoting Mazie0723:

You are not suppose to retract the skin.. smh

Yeah like the Mohel that gave not one, but 2 kids herpes during a circumcision-THAT NYC?

She said why-his penis doesn't look right to her-it looks like a little old mans. She wants it to look different. It's called cosmetic genital surgery.

Never understood why people do this.....there really should be a class for people to take before they have a kid just so they can make an educated decision. But good luck hopefully he heals fast!
