Hi there! I am the mommy to an adorable 4.5 month old (born 5/5/12)
He is chubby and has a chubby fat pad around his penis. His a little pillsbury dough boy! lol. Anyways, the fat pad around his penis causes it to pull his penis inward a little bit. The head is completely visable (he is circ'd) but his shaft is "in" his chubby pad. You can see a little bit of the shaft, but I have to press down on his fat to get the rest of it to pop out! LOL Our pediatrician says this is completely normal. We have a friend who is a pediatric urologist, and he also said this is very very normal for chubby boys and he sees it happen all of the time.
Apparently, as he gets bigger (walking and crawling) he will thin out, and his fat pad will slim down, making the shaft more visable.
I wanted to post here because some of you may have experienced this when your toddlers/kids were babies..so I'd like to see if when they thinned out, if it all came out?...lol
Has anyone heard of this? Experienced this? any mothers of little boys have experienced this with their little ones? As they got older did it "appear" more??? I'm not worried about it, but I have a couple mama friends with boys and their boys don't have this. However, their boys are longer and leaner. My man is chubby/stocky...like a linebacker! hehe.
I appreciate ANY advice/support/feedback....etc. Thanks so much!!!
