Moms w/circumsized toddlers

Okay I am not here to be bashed.

I have a 16 month old son that was circumsized at a month and a half.

His "pee pee" doesnt look normal in my eyes. I will try to describe the best I can.

Okay well it doesn't go back far and even when i pull the skin back to clean it no head is visible!

Is this a problem because i am worried about my son.

Does anyone have any information?

Can't help. My boys were 2 and 4 when I got them and they were circ'd at birth and looked very normal when I got them. Sorry

It doesn't sound right to me, but I am no doctor.  I would call your doctor and tell them what is going on and ask if it is normal.  By the way it sounds is they didn't cut all of the foreskin off and they may need to do it again.  I would definately ask your doctor though.

That started to happen to my son.. since I have never had to take care of a penis before I thought it was normal. Well the doctor pointed it out to me at his 6 month check up (hes 19 months now). He told me that dry pieces of skin will make the foreskin"stick" to the head of his penis. What he did was pull the skin off of the head, it was raw and bleed for a second. He told me that I need to continue to pull the skin off if I see it sticking. And not to worry because there is no way I could tear his skin doing this so don't be scared. I would have his ped. do it to show you. And if you decide to do it on your own put a dab of antibacterial ointment on it for a day or so following.

Sometimes the doctors don't get all the skin


They paid me TWO $75.00 checks :)

I agree.  I would ask his pediatrician about it.

It's just not retracted yet....completely normal.    It will be fine.

I'd say that is weird... that you can't see the head even with pulling the skin back. Has his pediatrician said anything about it?
