---Jessica---Livin' my life from A (1/05 ) to Z (4/08 ).....and z (3/11)
Right after he was born, I felt so intensely that we were doing the right thing by keeping him intact, though all of our families and friends traditionally circ their sons. I still remember that first big nasty poo he had, where it went squishing all up the front of his diaper, and how relieved I was that his foreskin was there to protect him from all the funk. That moment reaffirmed for me that it serves a true, valid purpose and was well worth keeping.
....I discovered that intact boys don't pee all over you during diaper changes!
BUT they don't have all the "issues" mainstream would have you believe. My son is 8 months and hasn't even had a diaper rash. He's doing great.
Ds is 18 months and has never had problems.

Oh yes they do. And they pee over their own heads. : At least my kid did--he was a baby and could somehow arc his pee over his body and his head to the wall behind his head during diaper changes. I still don't know how he did it.

Problem was minor, and FAR FAR less painful that he would have gone through being circ'ed. And def not a problem with being intact, more a problem of a dumb butt doctor
So other than that, problem free!
