My good friend since high school had her baby boy yesterday, and has been listening to me talk about circ for the past 9 years. This is her first boy and although she told me two years ago that she wouldn't ever circ, I wondered if she would really be able to not cave to the inevitable pressure. She got no grief from her dh, lots from her mom and sister. Well, little Grady Ryan is here and will remain intact. My friend ha eclectic views in that she is very natural in many ways (eats all organic), yet is very anti-breastfeeding (thinks it's gross), yet she didn't circ her son. She's totally comfortable with the pressure and has done her own research. I'm so proud of her- I wish I could have worked on the BF thing, but the circ thing was far easier than what getting her to bf would have been.

YAY!!!
However her view on breastfeeding is rather juvenile. Wonder if there are deeper issues there, anyway good for her for keeping her ds intact!!

That's great news - congrats!

You know, I've thought about this in the past - if I had a choice between leaving my son intact and breast-feeding him...I would formula feed without hesitation (glad I don't have to make that choice, but if I did...).

So if you are going to pick your battles - I definitely think you picked the right one.

Sad about the breast-feeding, though. YOu do wonder if there are other issues that need to be dealt with.

I am so Happy for you and for him




"is very anti-breastfeeding (thinks it's gross),"

I have known women who were sexually abused as children who cannot bring themselves to nurse their babes at the breast... understandably. One even had tons of therapy and knew where the disgust was coming from, but just said that it felt too much like she was being sexual with her own baby. How very sad
