I am a peds nurse who takes care of a lot of babies on up to near-adults. Well we are in full respiratory season now -- we are getting flu and RSV and bronchiolitis babies-- and by far the majority of the baby and toddler boys I have cared for are intact!! :-) It's actually rare to find a circed patient under the age of 4-5 years old.

I also think it depends on where you live. San Francisco I believe has the highest intact males. Also Oregon is pretty high too( where I live) I would say all my friends boys are intact!
But I would guess that still the majority is circ but the message is getting out there and many parents are considering and keeping their boys intact!
Best!
