Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

if they truly felt the benefits outweighed the risks, then the AAP should recommend it for all boys, no? they still don't recommend it....not that I really give a hoot what the AAP recommends.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

Need guidance...how to care for uncircumcised penis
1) during infancy/diapering
2) potty training hygiene/wiping?
3) toddler on up

I'm naive and want to be sure to train my LO correctly on proper hygiene. I'm assuming that there isn't much to it: during diapering, just wipe clean, no pulling foreskin. Once older, wipe clean, pull forskin back and wash with soap/water, rinse well. Do uncir. guys dab it dry after each urnination? Can't realistically see that happening, but am curious...my hubby is circ'd so he wants to know how to teach our son too since he's not sure.

I'm curious too. And any websites that state WHY you don't retract foreskin and such? DH is insisting you retract if poop gets in there....

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

^ mama, tell your hubby that poop CAN'T get in there because the foreskin is fused to the glans. Trying to retract it before it is ready causes tears (and pain) in the foreskin and glans making infection more likely. If you leave it alone it really is self cleaning (the stream of urine flushes it out each time)

Your son won't need to retract to clean it until he is older. Some won't retract until 10, or even closer to puberty, ours was fully retractable at 3.5 or so but I didn't discover that, he did We have never done anything besides wipe it like a finger during diaper changes and now we use a little toilet paper to dab with when he is done on the toilet but we never messed with him at all. It's not necessary and creates the problems you hear of

Just adding on to the above:
It doesnt need to be retracted and cleaned until it loosen on its own. So it is a ways away.

As for peeing. They can pee however they want to obviously but DH is in the middle of his restoration and we learned on his foreskin restortation forum that most intact men do retract to pee then replace. DH gives his a shake and that is what we teach DS. So he doesnt dab with TP when hes done peeing.

Its super super easy to keep clean and, I promise, no poop can get in there.

Amanda . Blaming my phone for typos and crap.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

My husband does not dab clean every time he urinates.

Im really praying for a son this time, that way the next generation of women will have the amazing healthy male anatomy of an intact penis, like I have been so lucky to have with Shawn.
I truly believe that by not circing our sons, we will stop the cycle.

Re: Top ten reasons not to circumcise your son

I would not advise a ton of soap under a retractable foreskin - it is irritating in the same way that I cannot use soap on my inner labia without stinging and burning. Rinsing is fine.
