I think you first need to do plenty of research on the topic and decide for yourself. This isn't something we can really help you with.

I think its a personal decision that should be made solely by the child's parents. I also recommend doing as much research as possible so you can be positive you are making an informed choice.

It's medically unnecessary. It is a cosmetic procedure and there are no scientific facts stating it is cleaner or healthier, just opinions. A circumcised penis of a newborn is more up-keep than that of an intact one. An intact one will retract one it's own anywhere from 4-6 years of age and that's when you teach them to wash it themselves. A dirty penis is an unwashed one, not an uncut one.
Do lots of research for yourself, then decide.

You need to decide for yourself sweet after plenty of research



You'll get a lot of people who'll say it's not needed. You'll get a lot of people saying it's cleaner.



Tbh Imo if my son wasn't meant to have a foreskin he'd be born without one, that's just me though.

My boys aren't circumcised. There is no medical reason to have it done. They can have their body modified however they would like when they get older.

There is a 0.010% risk of dying from circumcision complications vs 0.25% of needing a circumcision as an adult, both very, very low risks, which are you more comfortable taking?



For me those are the two key stats to consider.

My MIL is a nurse and said the amount of men and teen boys that come in too be done is unreal, because not being done causes 10 times the amount of infections, and they are cleaner when done...I researched and talked to local nurses and doctors and came to my own decision that it's by far better to be done...
