If your LO is a boy will you or wont you?
All 3 of my lil guys are intact but I think both sides of the argument are pretty persuasive.We decided there was no real medical reason to have it done and the rates of cicumcision over here are rapidly declining hence even though my dh is, our boys are not.
I heard all the comments about it being cleaner if they are snipped (lol) but this has never been an issue for us.

WDYT ?

I didn't snip my first and would do the same again.

my first son is circumcised, i left this decision up to my DH. He has lived both worlds and i thought he was more experienced then me to make this decision.

Most men prefer their sons to be done if they are :)

My boys are for religous reasons. They both had it done in our home on their eigth day of life, surrounded by family and friends. If we have another boy, he will be circumcised as well.

I left my son intact when he was born seven years ago...and actually I was so sorry I did.

I'm so sorry your son has gone through this..I wish there was a way they could have diagnosed that at birth to prevent such difficulties at 7.
