Can I join in? When I had my first son we had never given any thought to it so we just had it done. Ignorance was bliss? I don't know why we did that. It was before we headed down the natural path. Anyway- the night he was circ'ed the nurse came in to check it and immediately called the ped who came in from bed and freaked because apparently the skin had not "clamped" properly? So it started a month and half long freak out time of going to a urologist to keep having HIS PENIS superglued back together! Why did we do that to our poor sweet baby? Why? We were ignorant.
We now have 2 other sons which are quite obviously not circ'ed and all is well. Aside from the healing of the circ- cleaning has been a non issue in all 3 cases. My sister is a nurse and SHE gets on my case about my youngest 2 not being done because apparently old men she treats don't clean theirs.... I told her that will not be my problem- I take no responsibility for them when they are old men.
That is funny about the finger... My youngest calls his his finger lol. He did have one bout of swelling and redness and I just kept putting melaleuca oil on it and it went away in a couple of days.
