uncircum question??

Connor is NOT circumsized and I have a question about cleaning his area down there! Do you pull the skin back daily to clean around the head of the penis? I am so confused because I get conflicted answers from my pedi! She stated to start pulling it back when he was one and just to do it sometimes.... now she states that I don't need to worry "much" at all about it now....

Jesse is not circ'd either. I was told to just leave it alone and not worry about pulling it back to clean (his doesn't pull back anyways - sorry for the TMI). It's supposed to clean itself.

thanks for the reply! That makes me feel so much better have a ANSWER, not a guess suggestion.

I think I read somewhere that the skin will allow to be pulled back naturally eventually, but not for several years. That its fused in the meantime and could be painful if you try to push it back early. Tatum is circ'ed so I dont have advice, I just remember reading something about that in my readings when I was preggo.

Gabe is circ'ed too so I don't have any advice there. Just wanted to say that I share your frustration with vague advice from pediatricians. I get those "don't worry about it" answers all the time. It drives me crazy! Explanation, PLEASE?

I know Michelle, its so annoying. Connor walks a little funny (kinda rolls his ankle) and my doctor says, "oh, well, ummmm, hopefully it will correct itself!".

I wanted more of an educated "Doctor" answer then that! psssh.

Is this a nationwide pediatrician epidemic? I HATE HATE HATE the vague answers. Um hello, when you say "Do you have any questions or concerns?" and I give them to you I dont want to hear "Im sure its fine" or something of that nature as a response! Argh!!!
