Hi there! I am the mommy to an adorable 4.5 month old (born 5/5/12)

He is SUPER chubby and has a chubby fat pad around his penis. His a little pillsbury dough boy! lol.

Anyways, the fat pad around his penis causes it to pull his penis inward a little bit. The head is completely visable (he is circ'd) but his shaft is "in" his chubby pad. You can see a little bit of the shaft, but I have to press down on his fat to get the rest of it to pop out! LOL

Our pediatrician says this is completely normal. We have a friend who is a pediatric urologist, and he also said this is very very normal for chubby boys and he sees it happen all of the time.

Apparently, as he gets bigger (walking and crawling) he will thin out, and his fat pad will slim down, making the shaft more visable.

Has anyone heard of this? Experienced this? any mothers of little boys have experienced this with their little ones? As they got older did it "appear" more???

I'm not worried about it, but I have a couple mama friends with boys and their boys don't have this. However, their boys are longer and leaner. My man is chubby/stocky...like a linebacker! hehe.

I appreciate ANY advice/support/feedback....etc. Thanks so much!!!

I am posting this on a couple boards (just to hopefully get several opinions...)

Thanks Kiliki for the siggie!

My son is intact as in not circumcised so not experienced in that department but have heard from other Mom's who have experienced what doctors call buried penis it's a wait and see thing . Sometimes it resolves and sometimes it doesn't .
