Boy stuff

Not sure whether to post here or if there's a better place? I just wanted to know about little boys and their willies. DS has just started getting erections (age 5), is this normal? He seems fascinated by them. Also, he's started to occasionally pull his foreskin back but still hates for anyone to touch his willy and rarely touches it himself. Is this normal?

Yes erections are normal. Why would anyone else be touching his penis?

and yes it is ok for him to pull the foreskin back and it should be left for him to do rather than anyone else

Thanks. He's never had any erections that I've been aware of until last week.

He still wears nappies at night so I wipe his bottom and willy every morning and my husband sometimes helps him to aim when he wees standing up. As it can get messy otherwise. I don't see a problem with that?
