Yes it prevents infections

yes do it!!

it'll hurt less right now rather than when hes older

& it also prevents him from getting diseases.

do it. you wont be disapointed. it'll fall off in like 7-14 days

I had my mind made up until a couple of hours ago. I read that it makes baby very fussy and that it interferes with their sleep. Also that it rubs against their diaper making it irritated. So now its a tough decision, I don't want my baby to be in pain.

I Hv a lil boy and was very confused to you as to whether or not to have it done. However, after talking to his pediatrician a few days after his birth...I'm glad i made the right decision to NOT Hv it done. He's now four yrs old n has never had a problem in that area. In not doing so I saved him from pain he didnt need to experience. This is only my opinion and I'm sure other mothers who had it done on their lil boys, will of course Hv a different opinion. It's up to you tho, no one can tell u what is best for your child, but you. If u Hv questions, ask his pediatrician, if you hvnt picked one yet...do so, I'm sure they'd b happy to offer advice, whether or not your child has been born. Good luck in whatever u decide...ur bby will b fine. :)

Weather you do it or not not having it done mean better taking care of it and cleaning the area right....a baby will get fussy regardless such as he can get colic or something and he's gonna be fussy. My son had it done by a doctor in corpus very good he came back and didn't even cry for 10min but every babies different. Its not a bad thing to do and as for a diaper you just don't put its so tight take it they don't move alot when their little and alot easier to keep him clean then if you didn't do it you would have to be pulling his skin back and making sure he stays clean. because if you don't he can get infections or as I've seen in my line of work a child skin getting stuck and us having to clean it and pull the skin back which sometimes causes bleeding and lots of pain which I hate to see kids go through just some moms think their cleaning it right and the go to a doctor and the child is dirty and has infection. So the choice is yours because they both have pros and cons

Would you circumcise a girl? There's really no need for it. Very traumatic for baby. But talk to your doc. He can give you pros n cons for both. My brothers weren't and they are adults now and they didn't have problems not being circumcised. Js

sthu! it doesnt even hurt them! yes for the first minute or two. it doesnt rub. u put vaseline on the diaper so it doesnt irritate it. hes gonna be embaressed in the long run when he starts having intamacy. it not bad at all. idk why ppl think twice about doing it

I have never had problems and I am a 26 year old and very sexually active man. I am uncircumcised and have never had a complaint from women. We are born that way for a reason. Why modify a human body as soon as they are born....there is no reason too.

Well u do know that he can have problems as a man right ? Can u imagine him having to do it when he's in his 30s. Yes..... It's possible. Now that's something he won't forget. If it ever comes down to it.(Painful shit) it's all in ur hands.

My mom never got my brother circumcised and he is just fine ... My mother in law didn't with just one of her sons and tried to scare me into circumcising my son she told me how when he was little he always had to go to the docs to have his skin pulled back and cleaned from infection and he cried all the time but it never happened to my brother so in all reality it depends on how clean and careful you are ... My son is NOT circumcised and I don't regret not doing it ..

In the end its all up to you .. your decision and I'm sure whatever you choose you will be happy because its what you want.

Yes do have your baby circumsized...it's the best
and if you have insurance that covers it why not?

He might be fuzzy at first but do not worry about it; he is not going to remember about the situation.

It is something ... You will not regret.

Okay and how would you know it doesn't hurt them? Not trying to start an argument, its just a question? And about him getting embarassed when he's older really is the last thing on my mind. The reason for circumcising my son is for health reasons, not because it looks prettty. His father is not circumcised and we have no problem.

I have been a registered nurse for 15 yrs and have been an OR nurse for 10 of those years, I have to insert catheters on all ages of men and young boys on a daily basis and many are not circumsized and do complain a lot about painful sex, urination at times, and experience pain when catheters are put in. I have 2 sons and they are circumsized they are both married and have children and never have had any problems even as they were growing up. I have learned in my profession it's a form of good hygiene and can prevent many type of infections and more so DISEASES!!! Good luck with your decision, thought some educated help would help your decision.

I didn't circumsize my son for the reason that my husband isn't either. My son is 4 now and I teach him to b very clean with himself and he has never had any problems. I wouldn't circumsize ur baby. The way God sent him to u is the way he should stay.
