was changing my son's diaper and the penis head was blue in color. what's up with that? it was not a hard on. anyone else experience this with their son. he's only 10 weeks and doesn't seem to be in any pain

you should get that checked out just in case. blue usually means lack of blood flow.

Maybe it was the way it was positioned in the diaper. Did the blue color go away? If so, it was probably just a lack of blood flow and the penis was probably just bent or crooked in the diaper. If it didn't go away, get it checked out immediately!!!

it's embarrassing, but when my husband got home (20 minutes later) i took the diaper off to show him and it was fine. seems that it might have been cold when i took the diaper off...come to think of it, it was a little smaller than usual. lol.

Both my boys have kind of purple colored penis tips. It's strange but the doctor said it's normal. Hmmmmmm?

I would have to say Don't Worry about it!! It is normal! Sometimes my sons is blue or purple, maybe means that he's cold. Baby Boys can be so funny!!

My son is 10 weeks old and I just noticed the same thing. My dr. thinks he could have an infection...

amy------YOU need a NAP!

Amy, maybe you should attend a cultural studies class. After all, some religions REQUIRE circumcision. So, NO, it's NOT "only in the U.S."

Amy - November 18th, 2005 10:41 AM

Just because some religions require it doesn't mean that it's "normal". To achieve that bare glans look you have to cut something off the baby that is present with every baby boy and alter him radically. Normal is covered and flesh toned. Surgically altered is purple and rounded, as you are all finding out.

Jamie - November 18th, 2005 12:05 PM

Amy, wow, you really are stuck on yourself, aren't you? You do know that other people have opinions, too, right? And that yours isn't even the prevalent one? Okay, just checking.

Amy - November 18th, 2005 12:15 PM

Well it isn't prevalent here, there aren't that many people that still do it, it's an old fashioned, unnecessary procedure that most people wouldn't dream of inflicting on their kids. You really can't argue though that the "do nothing" option and therefore the one that results in a "normal" unaltered baby, also results in a baby with a foreskin.

I'm sure you are aware of the thread that was going on a while ago about circumcision. My advice to you is go find that thread, and post your thoughts there. This isn't the place for a circumcision debate. "Blue" was asking for advice, not personal opinions on an argument that will not end.

Hey, I've been thinking about having a circumcision, so I asked around.
It decreases the risk of giving and receiving sexually transmittable diseases, because stuff doesn't hide under the foreskin as much.
Also a doctor on the Oprah show said that sensitivity and pleasure during sex is increased (for the man.) I think it was because the sensitive part of the foreskin is a lot less covered.
So yeah. That's it. I'm getting my skin cut. Natural isn't by definition healthier. But you should think before doing anything to yourself. Millions of years of evolution (or... God?) must have done something right.
