Re: Non-circ'ing mamas - question
I have an almost 5 year old and a 2 1/2 year old who are both intact. Never had any problems. You don't have to retract and you don't have to clean inside anything. They will be old enough to wash inside themselves in the shower by the time it's completely retractable (which usually happens around the time that puberty hits). When changing a diaper you just wipe off the outside like a finger. Everything will be attached inside, provided nobody forces them to retract so nothing will get inside. Very, very easy to care for and we've never had an issue.
ETA: I think a lot of issues with intact boys/men occur because of forced retraction when they were too young. I hear a lot of horror stories about grown men having problems, but in most of the cases I've heard about, they were retracted as babies (which was common practice back then).
