My First Pediatrician Confrontation *Update in Red*
After being with her for 4 years! OMG I got so pissed off at her. Apparently now that my son is 4 years old the body cant do its job at keeping his penis clean and we have to retract it and clean between the head and the foreskin. Although the look of shock on her face when I said no and got my son completely dressed and ready to leave was priceless and she sat on the floor next to me aguring with me and speaking practicially directly to my fiance like he was going to back her up lol She finally said it was our choice and that we could take the chance and change the subject lol ya Im really taking a chance trusting my sons body to naturally do what its meant to do *rolls my eyes*
Anyway I would like to send her and the entire office info and keep info in the diaper bag for if we decide to take our youngest there for his one year next month, Im really thinking of contacting the local family doctor here now and talking to him since he took care of me.
So can I get all the useful links that I can print off?
If you cant read that it says "After 4 years and two kids I will not be bringing either of my sons back to COPA. Im disgusted by how uneducated the pediatricians are on intact penile care of children and how they are telling parents to retract the foreskin which can and does cause damage, infection and pain to the child. You NEVER retract the foreskin, only the child is allowed to do that and it should not be retractable till after puberty. You only clean the outside of it, only clean what is seen. Im posting links in the comments and I hope that your doctors will take the time to educate themselves and stop telling parents lies and inaccurate and harmful info." Its my first step and this publically calls them out about it and I will also be sending them some of the Intact Care packets from The Whole Network. We made the spur of the moment decision today when I drove 20 minutes (COPA is two hours away) to meet up with my mom and decided to see if the clinis that my mom took me to as a child still had my old doctor there and if they took our insurance, yes on both and I know he will not fight me on anything which I love. Now I just have a stack of paperwork to fill out lol and dealing the the pedicatrician office to transfer records and getting a copy of the boy's NICU records incase they want to look at those too.
