To circumcise or not to circumcise
I just quickly read an article about why the author and his wife chose not to circumcise but I didn't really find a set answer except this:
"...in parenting as in life, gather data, but ultimately stay grounded and follow our own hearts and intuition."
This is the basis of all our parenting isn't it? Each one of us is going to decide what we think and feel is best for our children and most of us do thorough research in this age of technology.
The author raised a few eyebrow raising tidbits of information that made sense.
We chose to circumcise three of our sons based on the belief it was the right thing to do, my husband is and for religious reasons. Our last son, we missed the opportunity to circumcise him in our doctor's office and did not feel comfortable (my gut screamed NOOOOOO!) putting our newborn under anesthetic in a hospital with an unknown urologist. We didn't even know a urologist! So the timing was not right for our youngest son and he is in tact.
So what do you think of circumcision?
We decided to do it with haiden a month before he was born.
Then with logan we didnt want haiden asking questions about why his brother penis was different.
With vince we figured with both other boys are done lets just do his.
