So, does your child's doctor check their private areas at each visit?

My sons doctor has not checked his stuff since he was less than a year old. I always thought it was pretty normal for doctors to stop after that if there are no problems. I honestly don't think I would be ok with him being checked constantly since there are no problems. Seems invasive.

My doc stopped once the diapers went away which for my oldest was right before her 2nd birthday.

My 2 yo had a yeast infection so she was checked them. But other than that no.
