Ladies, ladies. I have 7, 9, and 11-year-olds, and the privates pulling/playing never stops. I don't think they're necessarily doing it out of any kind of pleasure, but it is almost an absent-minded gesture. Moms of their peers also have this issue. Two years ago, I watched my then 7-year-old stand in the outfield for his baseball team for the entire season while he played with himself. We just try to stress that they're called privates for a reason, and some actions aren't appropriate for public. (Public also meaning my living room.) I also stress that they should make reasonable attempts to keep their hands clean if they're planning on doing it. (We had an incident with the oldest a few years ago where he had glue on his hands and then scratched his butt. He then got a major rash from where the glue got left on his butt for too long.)With boys, it's always an adventure. Surrender to dealing with stuff you never wanted to deal with!
I have a serious question. Yesterday D turned 9 months and we had an appointment- the pedi always undoes his diaper and checks his little penis. She then told me that I should be pulling back his skin once a day at diaper changes or his skin will grow together ... it's been 9 months and NO ONE told me o was supposed to be doing this. But, my question is, he is circumcised so why am I needing to pull back skin?
