Quoting Ry's Mom ♥:" You could change if you want, but if I was you i would express how much you are against doing that, will not be doing it and that she has absolutely no permission to."The only thing i am worried about is her forgetting and just going and doing it again.
Quoting Zoe&Harper's Mom (Em):" Yes I would recommend changing b/c she will more than likely do it with each checkup b/c to her that might be routine I hope she didn't cause any problems for your little one by doing that."I checked him out after we left and it didn't look like there was any damage done. He didn't bleed and his foreskin is still fused, thank goodness.
Quoting Blythe.:" are you not supposed to pull it back and clean it?"There are conflicting views. I do not want to risk tearing his foreskin and hurting him. Once his foreskin is retracted, it will need to be cleaned but it should retract on it's own not by force. He is still in diapers and if his foreskin is retracted than feces will start getting in there and he will be MORE susceptible to infection. The opening isn't even big enough to fit his glans through, I would HAVE to tear him to retract it to clean it.
Quoting ♕ˇRedHauté!♕:" I would, she sounds like a quack."She is actually the nurse practitioner...which I also don't like. No offense to nurse practitioners but I prefer my son see the same person every visit, I didn't even get to meet the Pediatrician.
Quoting Blythe.:" are you not supposed to pull it back and clean it?"
Quoting God:" Yes, I'd change. That's not a small issue, ignorance on intact penis care is a scary thing in a pediatrician. C."It leaves me to question much more of the practice.
Quoting God:" No because it is fused to the glans at birth until it retracts naturally after a few years (though in ... [snip!] ... whole thing off. That's what leads to so many infections, ignorance of how to deal with an intact penis in a young boy. C."I agree, non circ'ed boys are more susceptible to infection due to misinformed parents IMO.
