@Karla this is very true! I wish ppl would do more research.
both my boys as well as my soon to be third boy will be circumcised. i heard too many horror stories from people who weren’t circumcised as a baby
Yea like these other ladies spoke to my husband since he’s more equipped then me haha and he felt it was best ! It was a lot of the similar reasons to what Aja said we felt it was a good idea for hygienic reasons and have heard of stories where people had to take their toddler in which is just terrible . But each to their own I don’t judge other parents for deciding otherwise . It was a very quick procedure and he was just a little uncomfortable for a few days then was fine .
The US is one of the few countries in the world where circumcision is the norm. Throughout places like Europe and Australia it is not commonly done, and is largely considered unnecessary with no medical reason to do it, and those places have very strong public health. At the end of the day, it is a surgical intervention for aesthetic purposes done on a baby who isn't making the decision for himself. Parents in the US owe it to their kids to examine this cultural norm and make an actual informed decision. Anecdotes shouldn't be enough.
We will be I left the choice to his father. I also have family who have had problems with not being circumcised (infection and things like that. I don't know all the details just that they ended up needing it done) so we plan to based off that as well.
We plan on not doing it. My husband isn’t circumcised and I consider it genital mutilation that should be consented to. Like other hygiene skills, I hope to prepare my son to take care of himself when he is too old to need my help.
My 2 older boys were from my first marriage. They were circumcised. My youngest, 1 1/2 years old is with my husband. He is not circumcised and wanted out son to be since he knows first hand what it’s like not to be. So, all 3 of my boys are
@Aja 😂 my husband said the same he’s like idk how to clean that
I left that up to my husband tbh. He says it's better to have it done so that it's easier to keep clean rather than someday having dickcheese is what he says 😂 there are always going to be pros and cons of anything and it's better they go through it freshly born than having to worry about how to pay for it later and go through the pain (because it's worse when older) . Regardless there are no rights or wrongs about it it's really up to you so whatever you decide don't feel bad or question it ‼️
Husband and I decided not to because there are no medical benefits. I don't think there is a right or wrong way to go here. It's up to each individual.
We aren’t just because to us there doesn’t seem to be any medical benefit. But you do what you feel is best for your baby!❤️
Left it up to my husband he says yes
I thought it was an obvious yes for us, but after talking to my boyfriend more about it we decided not to. He’s a nurse and has said the same thing, that it’s basically genital mutilation which after researching about it more I’m comfortable with not circumcising. My boyfriend isn’t circumcised and it’s never been an issue for him.
I never thought of not doing it. 🤷♀️

I was on the fence too, until I watched this YouTube video. Now it’s a hell no. It’s really only for esthetic purposes, so I’m planning on teaching him how to clean himself properly and hope for the best. https://youtu.be/Ceht-3xu84I
We’re not! My husband is a doctor and feels very strongly that there is no reason to do it outside of aesthetics. He refers to it as male genital mutilation which I kind of agree. Plus it decreases sexual pleasure
Me and my bf have decided that once our baby is born we will be taking him to get circumcised. I mostly relied on my bf for this due to the fact that I don’t have a male part obviously, but whatever you choose is up to you. Don’t let no one tell you what you “HAVE” to do.
Yes my husband wants to circumcise. I left the decision up to him
We’re not. For some of the same reasons above. I have three step sons and none of them are. But as this is my first, I thought about it… that is until I got information on my godson who had a botched circumcision at birth. He’s 8 now and he has so many issues. They cut too much skin so they damaged more nerves than usual, he will be in so much pain when it gets hard and it won’t go down for days, so many children’s hospital visits and honestly not much that can be done aside from surgery and skin grafting. Put my friend into so much debt behind a hospital mistake. I know this is a one off, but this was enough to scare me off whatever fence ideas I had.
