    Default BellyBelly Babies Born 2009: Did You Circumcise Your Son?

    PLEASE ONLY VOTE IF YOU HAVE ACTUALLY GIVEN BIRTH TO A SON IN THE SPECIFIED YEAR.

    This is a poll to see any trends in the changes of circumcision over the years of BB members. This thread is not for debate - if you wish to post a comment, you may write about what led you to make that choice as long as it is not defamatory to those who choose opposite. For example, we did some reading and discovered xxx or my partner / I have a belief of xxx.

    Sorry, I can't add to the poll, I haven't had a son. If I was to have a boy:
    Yes, I would circumcise my son.
    Reason: To be the same as the father.

    I am a No voter. We decided not to simply as DH is against it and to us, as a couple didnt think it was necessary to go ahead with it. I believe he was born this way, so i didnt want to change him IYKWIM?

    ...am a 'no' voter as well. Found it hard to find information that made a compelling case 'for'. DH would have no problem having it done to DS if the compelling info presented.

    I am a Yes vote, for various reasons.

    I did find it very interesting that of the 5 boys in our new mums group, all 5 are actually circumcised.

    I voted No, we decided our son was perfect the way nature intended

    DH IS circumsized, but we felt that this was not a deciding factor

    I didn't have my baby yet, it's due in 2010. However, if it is a boy, we will circumcise for religious reasons.

    My son was not circumcised. I grew up in a country where circumcicions were only done for religious or medical reasons. Had never even heard of routine circumcisions before moving to Australia. The concept is still very strange to me and I just don't understand it. None of the common reasons given make any sense to me. DH is Aussie, but he was not circumcised either (although his father was). For us, circumcision was never an option. In fact, we would have had serious marital problems if DH had insisted on a circumcision. If DS wants it done later on, it is his choice to make. But judging by the results of this poll, he will not be the odd one out. I am really glad to see that.
    I don't judge people for doing it. I simply do not understand it.
