5 year old doing this thing with his uncut penis....Could it hurt him?

There are times in my life where I think to myself, Why did God give me boys?! Why?! Tonight was one of those times. So I caught my 5 year old peeing before the shower tonight. I was just going about my business turning on the shower, getting the 2 year old undressed, etc. and then I caught something out of the corner of my eye and was immediately like WTHeck?! Just to be clear, I don't care about him touching his penis. I just want to make sure this isn't going to hurt him.

So what he's doing is he's peeing, but holding the foreskin shut with his fingers. Then he watches it fill up with urine like a balloon (I guess stretching the foreskin out?) and then he lets it all out. He thinks it's hilarious. I'm thinking- urine backflow? Stretching out the foreskin? Infection? I don't know. Is that safe? Please tell me someone else's kid has done this before...

Well, urine is supposedly sterile... but I don't know.

Mine has done that before too. It was a phase and haven't noticed it in a long time, no infections or anything. So hopefully this phase shall pass without any problems

I would ignore it and hope it goes away. Bringing attention to it with my little guy would just make him do it more...

It's not going to hurt him and I've read a story online where a guy said he and his friends used to do this and have shooting contests, to see who could spray the farthest.

I've also heard that some guys prefer to do this when they pee because it "cleans" under the foreskin in between showering.

My DS is 7 and balloons when he pees, without even messing with it. It's normal.

My DS will be 5 next month and his balloons and fills with pee without him doing that and he is fine. It's been doing it for several months now and it has never bothered him or caused any problems. Like the pp said, telling him not to do it is probably just going to make him do it more .

You learn something every day... That's an impressive party trick. I had no idea little boys could do that. Now, watch, through telepathy my 4 yo will figure it out tomorrow.

Hahaha, totally normal! I remember hearing teenaged boys talking about doing this in school.

I'm sure it's not a problem if it's not hurting him.
