see im just the opposite, i think a penis with the foreskin removed looks really gross. i know all the women that i know who have intact partners say the same

My boys are not circumcised but my friends DS is. She cut up little strips of fleece and used coconut oil on the tip for a few days untill it healed. She didn't have any problems with it sticking or ruining her cloth. Hope that helps

We did not circ but my nephew is. I gave SIL some CJ's BUTTer rash cream (unscented) and she put it on there every day, with every change. She said it worked fabulously.

You could get a couple of tubes of CJ's since it doubles as rash cream anyway.

He healed up in a few days. Even our intactivist midwife was impressed by how it looked at 1 day. He had a little extra bleeding the afternoon of the procedure but as the doctor had told us, if you see blood trickling, just apply pressure for 60 secs. It was all good after that.

I really didnt want to, but I'm Jewish and thought it was an unfair burden to put on him when he's older, just because I didnt have the guts to do it now. I researched the variations of the procedure, chose the doctor carefully, and his Dad and I were present for the whole thing. I held his hands, while he sucked sugar water off his Dads finger. The most discomfort he showed was with the first lidocaine injection and with the cleaning after, but even those were minor compared to the heel prick for PKU testing. He was also 16 days old, so the doc said he reacted more than most.

I think the intactivist post above is rude because it has so much false info. Interferes with breastfeeding 75% of the time is plain bull. Even my midwife, who tried to talk me out of it, didn't make that claim. My son was underweight the day of his procedure, an ounce away from not being able to do it... Afterward he nursed so well he started gaining more than an ounce a day.

Honestly the risks of circ vs not are higher than having a baby in a hospital instead of at home. And nobody's out telling everyone to run away from hospitals.

There was also a study just published that circumcised men have lower rates of prostate cancer. Makes no sense but there you go

Since when is "drmomma.org" or "circumstitions.com" a reputable source of scientific information? I laugh every time I see biased sites like that cited as a reliable source of information. That is not research. They will tell you precisely what you want to hear, just as a pro-circ website would! It is nonsense. Sure, they all post studies but only ones that favor their point of view.

Medical journals are reliable sources of unbiased information. Medical organizations like the WHO, AAP, AUA, and the CDC are reliable and unbiased. That is where people need to do their "research," not on bogus "save the foreskin" sites.

ETA: I can't say that I'm surprised considering how many people would heed the advice of their peers on a public forum before they'd listen to their own pediatricians and other medical professionals. And no one knows better than Dr. Google, right?
