I've been going back and forth with deciding to have Newbie circumcised or not. Ever since I saw pictures of a sweet baby boy being circumcised, I can't imagine putting Newbie through it, but I know hubby wants it done. I have questions for both sides of the argument & am hoping I can get some answers from real life experiences. Googling it doesn't seem to help us make our decision any easier--lots of shock factor articles our there, but doesn't help us gain perspective for either side really.
What are some of the cons I can share? Are there any pros aside from appearance (ie: "he looks like me" mentality)? How does one know they're properly cleaning an uncircumcised penis? How does one deal with a healing circumcision after baby has it done?
Did you have your son circumcised? What did they do for comfort for him? Was it hard to clean while healing? Would you change your mind if you could do it again? What were your reasons for having it done?
Is your son still intact? Have you had any complications because of it? Is it hard to clean/teach him how to clean? Would you change your mind if you could do it again? What were your reasons for keeping him intact?
If you could help me understand pros/cons to circumcision better, I'd really appreciate it. I want to present hubby with a logical argument for both sides if possible since this really is a big deal for Newbie & we've only got a few more weeks until he arrives. Thank you!!
