Does it matter that I can't pull my baby's foreskin back all the way when bathing him?

Does it matter that I can't pull my baby's foreskin back all the way when bathing him?

No: The care of uncircumcised penis in a baby is easy. You leave it alone. Bathe your baby frequently and cleanse the penis on the outside. No other manipulation is needed as the foreskin will retract on its own over time. The entire process takes many years. If you forcefully try to retract the foreskin you may cause pain, tears and adhesions latter on. ...Read more

Is bathing safe for twelve to fifteen month old babies?

Yes: Baby may enjoy bath time now, splashing, cooing, and playing. Never leave your baby alone in the tub for even a minute. Genital care is often overlooked. Girls need the folds opened to clean away any buildup of creams or debris. Circumcised boys need the foreskin drawn back to expose similar buildups of body secretions or debris that can be gently washed away. ...Read more
