Well, my opinion of circumcising has changed as well. My boys are all circ'ed, but if we have another, it's NOT likely.

However, none of my boys despise me - I'm very close to all of them. My third was a total mama's boy.

could it be because my third is breastfed and my other's wasn't?

Perhaps. All three of mine were. My second had lots of trouble because I had some major milk supply problems. We've had some rough patches in our relationship (early on) and I know that they were a result of the frustration on both our parts. We're slightly less 'connected' than I am with the other two. My third nursed until he was 19mo and he's still mommy's little boy.

i wasn't educated on bf'ing when i had my first 3 babies don't have the bond i do with my lo. i'm afraid if i go to work i'll loose that bond because i can't pump for nothing....

Re: info on circ for 1st time mamas of boys

so would you say your attatchment with your lo compared to your older onces are different now or compared age to age like when they were your lo's age? I haven't done a lot of reading on circ., but my little boy is circ. and I did bf and I think we have a good attachment.

Good for you OP Both my boys are intact (ages 8 atnd 2) and I have never once regretted my decision to leave them the way they were meant to be.

I circ'd and only bf for a short time (long story, but I do have a reason)...and my 2 boys are the biggest mama's boys ever. It's probably just their ages, but I'm sure they don't despise you

DS is not Circ, we choose to not do it after we took our Bradley method birthing class and saw the video ... My DH was hell no we are not doing that!!!

DS is very attached and very mommas boy.. Granted he is my first.. And is still nursing 6m old I suppose I am his world right now.
