On another forum I frequent a few weeks back one of the moms with an older boy was asking a foreskin question. Her son is intact and he was having some pain. It sounded as if he was going through the seperation process. She was going to take him to the pedi but was worried because her ped was pro-circ. I explained seperation to her and she cancelled the appt.<br><br>
Well today the thread suddenly popped back up. One of the other moms who is pregnant and due with a little boy at the end of July. She said she had been planning hands down to circ her boy but after reading my info and reading through the links I had provided (noharmm and mother's against circ) that she was now on the fence.<br><br>
She wanted to know how you care for an intact boy. I told her he would have an essentially maintenance free penis that would need only to be wiped down like a finger. I also told her my story about circing my own son and my deep regret.<br><br>
I also included links to the mothering articles on Circ.<br><br>
Is there anything else I should pass on?

Just thought I would add that she must have a fabulous DH. She posted again this morning that she brought up the subject with him last night. She asked him if he wanted to watch the video and told him that they tie the baby boy's down etc.<br><br>
She said he turned green and said "No" that he didn't want to watch the video. She asked him if the decision not to circ was ok with him and he had NO problem with leaving their son intact! Yay Dad!!

Kudos to you!!!! That stuff makes me so happy. I've saved a few foreskins myself. There were some that I was unable to save, but every time I do save one I feel like there is hope and it makes me so happy. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We can't change the world overnight, but every victory is one step closer to the abolition of this horrible practice. Congrats on a job well done. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
