Regarding The Penis Size Of An 8 Month Old Baby?
I want to ask, from birth until now my child’s genitals are only round and short, is that normal for a baby boy, now he’s 8 months old
Hello, Rini Camelia, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
To find out whether the size and condition of your son's penis is normal or not, measurements and examinations are required. Normally, the penis size in a newborn is between 2.8 and 4.2 cm with a diameter of 0.9 to 1.3 cm. There is a disorder where the size of the penis is smaller than normal which is called a micropenis, that is, if the baby is between 0-1 years old, the length is smaller than 1.9 cm. The measurement is done by stretching the penis and measuring from the base to the tip of the penis. You can try measuring it first using a measuring tape. Or, if you are not sure, you can go to the doctor for measurements and a general examination of his condition.
Check this especially if you also find other symptoms such as: the penis swells when urinating, there is redness or swelling of the penis, fever, flatulence, vomiting, crooked urination (not straight), the urinary hole is above or below, until can't pee.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
