Circumcision info sheet?
If we have a boy we have decided not to circumsize. I know there are threads on here for those who choose not to, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a simple, unbiased, factual, one-page list somewhere that discusses why people don't circumsize and how to care for (or not mess with) an uncircumcised kiddo? I want to have something I can just hand over and not have to engage in discussion to family who will have an opinion, and didnt want to recreate the wheel if something already exists.

I just found a website the other day that had this really great article!
A little ways down there was a sections called "Full Length Articles". In there, there is an article from Mothering Magazine that was really well written.

Amanda :). Blaming my phone for typos and crap.

Don't retract, only clean what is seen :) (I know not what you're looking for, but you really don't have to do anything extra with an intact penis)

here's a good list of fifty reasons to leave it alone....reason # 6 is that it is easier to care for and will link you to an article about intact care...which is basically leave it alone, clean what is seen, as mentioned above:)

I have never done anything else with DS intact penis. We've had a few issues here and there but it's because HE did something to it...had nothing to do with being intact AT ALL!
