If this baby is a boy,  yes, he will be circumsized.

If I was going to have a boy I wasn't going to.

I didn't get my first son circumcised and I probably won't get my baby boy circumcised either. Bc even though it does take more to clean it the older they get I'd make sure they keep it clean then there won't be any problems. And to me the "fitting in with other boys" isn't importan enough to make that decision prematurely. I honestly believe that should be my son's decision.

My son is circumcised but if I was to have another, I probably won't have it done. I don't regret my son's circumcision but I see no point in risking anything if I don't have to.

Being circumsised isn't "fitting in" anymore anyways. It is pretty even the percentage of boys who have it done and who don't.

If DD were a boy, she would be uncircumcised. I just don't see the need for it.

I have a daughter, but If we ever have a son we will not have him circumcised. & I am pretty sure I'll never change my mind about it.

My DS is, but if I have a future boy, he will not be.

I have had a lot of reservations about getting it done but after a lot of research I am getting my son circumcised. If I were you, I'd research it and then make a decision. Also, my husband is circumcised and he made it clear that he definitely wanted our son to be as well.

 my husband is circumcised  and so is our son. He wants this boy to be also I've been really debating whether or not to have it done to this boy. I really dont want to after watching YouTube videos of it and hearing some debates how its completely un necessary and that health issues aren't even real. But Idk Ugh wish I was having a girl =/ lol

It depends on who you're talking about  fitting in with. In My family and community it's fitting in. I don't know many ppl who are not or have babies that are not circumcised. My friends a nd family think I'm crazy for not having my son/sons cut.  But I just don't feel like it's my choice to make. I already know there are millions of men who aren't cut but in my ethnicity  culture and background it's something that's fine from tradition and the men that aren't circumcised are seen as nasty or weird bc of all the unresearched rumors and wives tales which is what I was referring to.

Ahh ok. I think someone else on here mentioned something like that before too.
