Re: experience with UTI's in young children? (long)

bubble baths could be another possible culprit...and congenital urinary tract defects....I found this link which seems informative:

Isn't it strange that UTI's are so much more common in girls, yet we don't suggest cutting off any of their genitalia as a solution? Girls are also far more likely to develop breast cancer, than men would develop penile cancer, yet circ is commonly suggested as a preventative measure for avoiding penile cancer. Why not cut off the breasts?

Anyhoo...sorry to ramble. I hope it stops happening to him. Be firm with docs, and esp. urologists, circ is NOT the answer.

His body, his choice.
