I think that if were to write them: http://www.doctorsopposingcircumcision.org/ or even Intact America (intactamerica.org) either one of those groups could give you a referral to a foreskin friendly pedi for another opinion. The previous poster was correct though that the average age for being able to fully retract their foreskin is like 10.5 years. My opinion would be that if he is not having any problems urinating, then it's fine. If you wish to read some info try cirp.org they have a collection of circumcision research papers. You're looking for info on 'normal development'.

Also Docs opposing circ will send info to the doc to read so they understand the function and "life cycle" of the foreskin. They are amazing! I have worked with them before. That way they do not continue to spread bad info.

Yes, let them do this. It's very effective.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

what do I do? My spouse will not hear a word I say about my desire to not circumcise our son. He is blatantly for doing it. And he has no good reason either. I can't say a word against it without him talking about being dirty and the like. He is over 40 years old and so is from this mindset. He is a very stubborn man and will not open his mind or do any research. What do I do?

You can always refuse. Both parents need to sign for it. In that case I would put my foot down but thats just me. If he doesnt want to do the research then I would demand it me my way but thats just me.
