circumcision?

we haven’t found out the gender of our baby yet, but me & my husband we’re talking & he wants to circumcise our baby if it’s a boy. i’ve read so many things about how awful it is for the baby & i just want to get an opinion from some moms that have & have not had it done. 😭😭😭 i’m conflicted.

We had the procedure. Only “bad”/scary for the first 24 hours but he healed great and fast! I seen more pros with the procedure than not. Good luck mama, neither choice is wrong

It's hard to make this sound like it's not an attack through text, so please know that it's not! Just curious what pros you saw. Are you comparing it to your other intact child? My son is intact and haven't really thought twice about it or had to do anything special for it.

My son is circumcised Because that’s what my hubby wanted. I was dead against it. But one of my close friends son had to have an emergency circumcision when he was older due to a complication and I was so very thankful we did it when he was a newborn. Because that poor little boy was in so much pain

My son was circumcised when he was 2 days old. Procedure took less than 5 minutes. He came back calm with no issues and healing was quick and he showed zero symptoms of being in any pain. 🤷🏻‍♀️. He was done at a military hospital and they said 98% of boy babies are circumcised there. If you are going to do it, earlier is better. To each their own.

We did it, and I cried when I saw it afterwards. It's just one of those things when you're under the hormones of giving birth and you see the way it looks right after surgery that just makes you cry. My aunt(who delivered my son and is a midwife) told me she saw the procedure dont so many times that it freaked her out and she decided not to circumcise her sons.

Please watch American circumcision on Netflix. It is a COSMETIC procedure that greatly reduces natural function and sexual pleasure for both partners.
