Just wondering what people have decided to do when it comes to the issue of circumcisions their baby boys? We have two beautiful girls so have never had to contemplate the idea. We decided not to find out the sex of this bub so it has really got me thinking. Any experiences would be great thanks!
(please no judgements as I do understand that this can be a controversial topic)

After lots of research I am anti routine circumcision. I understand there can be medical reasons to do it but this is not very common. There is no real reason to do it otherwise. Just my view.

I feel it's similar to removing tonsils or appendix "routinely". Yes they may need to be removed later on, but they do serve a purpose, recocery time for an adult may be longer but the risks for a baby would be higher (infection, complications with surgery)
If my son needs surgery at a later date on his foreskin for a medical reason I'll still stand by my decision not to routinely circumcise.

The thought never even popped into my head. His body his choice.

It is a very personal decision. Do your research, talk to your dh and go from there. If you want to know more about the procedure or about people experience with getting done. I would suggest that you post in the pro circ section.

We are not going to. Hubs isn't and he has never had any issues. It's a personal choice and for us we do not think it's necessary and we think it's mean (sorry just how I feel).

We didn't even consider it for a second. As PP said. His body, His choice.
Never crossed my mind for a second that it might be my decision to make...because it isn't.

We have 2 sons, and never even thought about it. My husband is still intact, and has taught our sons how to keep themselves clean there while going pee and to make sure they properly clean themselves during bath/shower time. It is a personal decision, but I believe its for them to make when they are older or if medically necessary. Completely up to you, but I'm against.

My DH isn't and never had any issues. Having said this my SIL's ds needed it done at 12 months of age due to ongoing infections. She feels as though she made the wrong decision allowing him to have it done, she has said the recovery was awful (needed 12 stitches).
