Uncircumcised versus Circumcised Baby Care(ie still has foreskin or lacking foreskin)

Pediatrician answers: How do I clean my baby’s genitalia? Should I retract it myself? We Americans have been indoctrinated with the belief that whole babies require inordinate amounts of cleaning. Is this really true? How to properly care for your uncut baby(It’s easy!): www.cirp.org Protecting your Uncut Son from Medical Personnel: www.mothering.com Reversing the epidemic of forcible retractions: www.kindredmedia.com.au FAQs About Foreskin Care: www.doctorsopposingcircumcision.org How do I care for my young son’s intact penis? The intact penis needs no special care. The foreskin should never be retracted by force. During the first few years of a male’s life, the inside fold of his foreskin is attached to his glans, very much the way the eyelids of a newborn kitten are sealed closed. The tissue that connects these two surfaces dissolves naturally over time – a process that should never be hurried. The foreskin can be retracted when its inside fold separates from the glans and its opening widens. This usually happens by age 18. Even if the glans and foreskin separate by themselves in infancy, the foreskin still may not be retractable then because the opening of a baby’s foreskin may be just large enough to allow for the passage of urine. The first person to retract a child’s foreskin should be the child himself. A very young boy usually pulls his foreskin outward. This is normal and natural and no cause for concern; he won’t hurt himself. Once a boy discovers that his

    Fetus’ have been recorded playing with their penises and even getting erections. It’s completely normal and not sexual in any way. It just feels good, that’s all.

  • stillrightorwrong:

    what do you think “playing with themselves” means? you think they’re talking about playing with his toes maybe? No, he’s talking about playing with his penis, also known as masturbation.

  • stillrightorwrong:

    I never knew that about the in utero playing with the penis. That is interesting. It sugguests more of the instinctual aspect and not sexual. And if retraction of the foreskin is a delecate and slow process then I supposed it makes sense that the boy should do it. After all he knows best how much it can be moved without pain or damage. Thanks for that info.

  • Tavereen:

    It’s my pleasure.

  • Paradoxical003:

    no encouragement necessary:
    even fetuses masturbate, its a natural bodily function.
    no encouragement recommended either pervs.

  • stillrightorwrong:

    paradox, yeah i get it now, see my comment/response to tavereen. i misunderstood, didn’t know, sorry, so no need to send me messages on the issue. its all nautral. got it

  • ilikeoptter:

    There is nothing wrong with masturbation. It is a perfectly normal, natural and healthy activity. Those of you who put so much energy into fearing it is one of the reasons why so many infant boys are permanently mutilated in America through circumcision. We all have the inalienable right to the wholeness of our bodies from the moment we are born to the moment we die. Put your energy into recognizing the human rights violations of infant boys in America. Help stop MALE GENITAL MUTILATION.

  • Bazylewiczkuban:

    Your absolutley right. Its a shame how many people are embarrased by the topic of masturbation.

    Cicumcision is absolutley useless and should be banned except as an absolutley last resort option to cure a foreskin problem.

    My parents were misinformed when I was a baby and they thought you had to forcefully retract the foreskin or else it won’t come down and get infected. Because of this I have had problems with my penis my whole life, and I still have phimosis and frenelum breve.

  • Gripen1974:

    you dont need to encourage them to do it, they do it by themself.

  • Gripen1974:

    My son had an erected penis on the ultrasound,

  • stillrightorwrong:

    ok already, people read my other more recent comments. and stop sending me yours. i already said it- i get it. i only thought it was strange to read that babies play with themselves in the womb since newborns have so little control over their limbs and hands. they have to work at simply taking hold of a toy that’s right in front of them. i didn’t think they had the dexterity for playing with themselves. just my thoughts but whatever, i dont want to start an argument

  • Ryan18181:

    If you are suffering from phimosis i have a great tip that could see your problem gone in 3 or 4 months. You know them flesh tunnels that are fashionable at the moment? If not google it. Basically they are stretching devices generally worn in the ear. Use only silicone tunnels as they will not cause irritation avoid solid or rubber tunnels and increase in a maximum 2mm every two weeks. Wear the tunnel constantly even during urination.

  • Ryan18181:

    Take it out about twice a day to clean it, but never leave it out for more than 15 mins as skin retracts quickly. once you reach a size where your foreskin can retract comfortably keep the flesh tunnel in place for at least 6 weeks to allow the skin to fully adjust and to avoid the skin shrinking again once you take it out. PM me for any more info.

  • sweet4u420:

    I didnt circumsize my son, and when i saw a baby who was at a baby group.. i was shocked.!!! i thought he had no penis.!!! it looked like a belly button. :/

  • drealgrin:

    thanks for that info! rofl “sarcasm”

  • TheWhiteRabbit1990:


    Good idea, lets put our infants through immense pain and mutilate their dick to conform to a social norm.

    No. Would you chop of your daughters labia if you lived in Africa because all the other women will make fun of her? Move to europe, canada, or anywhere else in the world except america if you want a normal intact penis to be accepted.

  • TheWhiteRabbit1990:


    Very well I pose a few questions to you based on your response.

    1) Do you believe that because the child does not remember the experience that it justifies the action?

    2)If you believe that it is ok, because the child does not remember it, then what other actions towards a newborn infant are you ok with, or not ok with, based on it not remembering. (ie hitting a baby, piercing a babies lip, giving a baby a tattoo? What if those things were for a religious purpose?

  • kingkool875:

    Very true, never forcibly retract. Circumcision is worse than forcible retraction. Because the first step to a circumcision is forcible retraction, with a knife! Circumcision removes 75% of penile shaft skin and is the reason why many men simply say “sex is overrated.” The truth is, it was not supposed to be that way, but it is because you were circumcised. Boycott circumcision, there is no medical need for it. Don’t force it upon him, instead teach him to wash and use condoms.

  • TheWhiteRabbit1990:


    I hope you never have a child.

    and I’m not an extremist. being against circumcision is no more extreme than being against child rape, or people who are against beating children up for spilling milk.

    I have a life btw working with children.

  • helookalikaman79:

    How could you be ashamed of being loved so much that you were left whole? U gave them the power over U!, you let them “teasers” make you feel ashamed of being whole when it was them that were ashamed of not being loved enough, you allowed the power of a silly female to overcome you to the extent that you had your body altered not because you wanted it but due to there shame. and ignorance. ANY parent that LOVES their son, will have them left INTACT when they are born ! HIS BODY HIS CHOICE !

  • MrRob1967:

    @JayZeelz Google the American Cancer Society’s statement on circumcision and penis cancer. You’re simply wrong. It’s another circumcision legend and nothing more.

  • MrRob1967:

    It also says that they don’t recommend routine infant circumcision. Circumcised men do get penis cancer. Dimwit.

  • MrRob1967:

    @helookalikaman79 Good point.

  • DaManCallahan:

    I’m glad my dad decided not to cicumcise me. Hygene is not the huge deal some make it out to be, and uncircumcised men retain greater sensation in the head of their penis.
