Thank you all for all the info here! My three older boys are all circ'd (8, 4, and 4). The oldest I never even questioned, then the twins I was hesitant and we didn't do it until 5 months. DH is circ'd and wanted his boys done. Then for our now 11mo old everything changed. We started going crunchy with the twins due to allergies (cloth, milk sharing, organic, no vax) and survival (baby wearing). So of course hanging around these boards had me researching things I never gave much thought to. Hubby wasn't on board with leaving E intact for the first half of my pregnancy. Then a local little boy died at 4 or 5 days old due to circ complications and dh changed his mind. Now E is whole and left the way God created him.
I have heard "But your other boys are circumcised..." Over and over from family, and I don't think they'll ever lay off! Funny part is, the boys don't even care so far! It's just my crazy side of the family who thinks its gross and will be stinky :/

I someone use quotes for "surgery" regarding circumcision. Not sure why but it really pissed me off. Maybe if the had part of their genitalia removed with a scalpel they wouldn't make light of the procedure
