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!
Www.luckystiff.org
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.

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)

Re: Circumcision info sheet?

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!
