DO NOT SHOW IT TO YOUR DH!! It's for "your eyes only."

i'd hold firm and tow the line. protect your baby. your dh will come around eventually. it can't be done without your consent.

i don't know if it's been mentioned already, but with MRSA on the rise everywhere, it's even more dangerous, creating an open wound on a newborn for it to enter thru.

Be an Empowered woman Cat !

Cat, sometimes women can't change men's minds regarding the circumcisin issue and get them to understand why it is unnecessary and why the ambutation of little boys' healthy, normal prepuces is harmful in many ways.
Here is wonderful essay written by a woman in 2003. It is entiteld:
"Why empowered women choose Not to circumcise"

http://www.wnc-woman.com/0405circumcise.html

Please read it and realize YOU CAN and WILL have the POWER to PROTECT your son from an unnecessary and harmful circumcision.

I am a male who is looking forward to the day when the U.S. Federal law that protects female children from unnecessay genital cutting and ambutations will be amended to protect all little boys too.

I told my DH; do the research when you come up with real reasons to circ let's have a debate until then the baby stays intact. the baby is now 3 and intact
There is nothing out there stating circumcsion is better or good the best your DH will find is; "It's the parent's choice"
Let him find real stats..they don't exist. Tell him the baby will look like him, he might have his eyes or hair or face. Tell him you want to the baby to look like you too and you are intact
