We got the same reaction from my Mom when I told her we wouldn't be circing. But I knew it was the right choice for us. In the beginning the foreskin completely covers the penis even when it is erect (which happens a lot even for a baby) so you clean the outside like a finger. Like the pp said, once the child is older and the foreskin retracts it needs to be retracted and cleaned when bathing. Just remember that most if the world doesn't do routine circumcising and life goes on for them. For me I felt like if my girls didn't need surgery right after birth then why would I do it to my son?
