You can find excellent resources here at the "case against circumcision" forum - but my5 mo old DS is intact - no special cleaning required at all. In fact, he's been easier to care for than any of my friends whose boys are circ'ed. (All of whom have had issues with having to push back skin and clean, make sure it doesn't re-attach, etc.)

 

Like PP said, I wipe it down like his fingers and toes. It's never a problem.  I found myself very emotional about keeping him intact ... perhaps something for another thread but I'm really happy he's whole.



Thanks for the tips. I have mixed feelings about not circumsizing. I have never really seen a boy/adult man (only very eldery men) without it done. I don't want my baby to be the only one that isn't in a group that is, or be the only one that is in a group that isn't.  I realize that most people feel that it is cosmetic, but I do feel it definitely has some hygenic reasons too, and I can't shake the feeling that being done is cleaner. That's the way I was brought up. 

 

I am hoping to learn more about it and hopefully feel better about it.

I think you will find that there is more folks these days not circ'in.  Our MW's practice is 2/3 non circ'd.  It will be the norm (hopefully) when our Son's are of age.  Keep reading on non-circ.  I have a few friends that did circ and deeply regret it. 

 

DH will one day have to talk about why his looks a little different that DS and we are not at all worried about that conversation. 

 

This video was one we showed family members that had a issue with it and it may help you too!
