Q.

3 Yr old son - Penis

My Son is 3year and 3 months. I want to know if it is reccommemded for him to pull his foreskin back and forward at times, so as to make sure it does not get "  sort of tight "  when he grows bigger. Should he not pull the foreskin back and forwards. Your comment. Thank you.

You do not need to do this. Just wash your son's penis using a soft washcloth when he is in the bath.Do not try to pull the foreskin back.
