For most babies this is completely normal as they are learning where their boy parts are. It is something new to explore. I would not make a big hubaloo about it but simply re-diaper baby and go on with your day. A big hubaloo will draw more attention to it and could cause your son to do it more.

Very rarely, this type of behavior may be an indication of skin irritation, infection or some other medical problem. If you suspect it is, consult with your doctor.

Totally normal and nothing to worry about. The penis is just another body part, just like and arm or foot. Babies are naturally curious and always learning new things. To a baby it is just something new to play with.
