    But do you hand her over to the nurse or does another relative stay with her? I couldn't be with DD1 when she had her first needles so DH took her while I waited at the door. I think what many anti ric people feel odd about is that parents can hand over a tiny baby to a nurse and a doctor without any family member present while their so pn is circ'd. Just makes me sad.

    I have the balls and I do stand up for my son. I debate circumcision regularly, with my DH and the many other members or my family who are pro circ. However, my DS is just as much DH's son as he is mine.As you all know pro circers are just as passionate about the subject as anti circers. All believe they are right. It is a really difficult situation to be in. If I post in this section I get told to grow some balls (ironic!!) if I post in the pro circ section I get bombarded with biased information. So I think I'll just stick with google!!
    Why is your DH so in favour of it?

    Sometimes some of the anti circ threads/POV's can feel like bullying.
    I'm not pro circ and ds is intact so I don't necessarily agree with it, just putting it out there as an outsider of how comments/threads can look.

    Had this been posted 4 times now or is my phone playing silly buggers?

    He honestly believes it is cleaner, less chance of infection etc. He has also seen some if his friends needing it done later in life and apparently it's worse then (not that anyone would know cause babies can't talk). So he'd prefer to get it done now then it possibly happening to DS later on.

    Ok. I was dreading your response being that he wants his son to look like him.

    My DH is intact. I know heaps of guys who are in their 30s and 40s and are intact, and who've never had an issue. Guess it's just one of those things. I wouldn't have my appendix removed even though one of my bf's daughter has just been through an horrendous time because hers burst and it went undiagnosed.

    I hope you can find some answers. I can honestly say it's no cleaner one way or the other.

    I use the appendix scenario all the time!!
    Edited to add: I honestly don't know what the outcome will be but I know I really don't want to hand my son over to have a procedure that's not necessary. No matter how much DH and MIL try and convince me, you can't tell me they aren't in pain. Just cause they don't remember it doesn't mean if didn't hurt them. Hopefully DH will forget about it!!!

    Is he sure it's not a little bit because he wants his son to be the same as him? I really think it's hard for guys who aren't to separate their own feelings about it from having a son who isn't. I respect that. My oldest daughter is nothing like me phyisically. Nothing at all. She's every bit her father. It seems trivial but it's not.

    He says he'd like his son to look like him but that is not the main reason. He never says that when we are discussing it, it's always the hygiene and less chances if infections etc.
