This is not a debate and I know you ladies won't turn it into one. Just a curiosity question.

Will you circumcise?
At the hospital or wait a few days?
Why or why not?

Remember this is not for debate just people talking about what they are doing with their children .

Yes we will.

We will have it done at the hospital before leaving. He will most likey be two or three days old since I am having a C-section this time. We had DS done and feel it is what is best for our family. I have taken care of boys both ways and prefer circumcised.

At the hospital or wait a few days? I'll have to wait until after he's born a month or two, they changed it and it can't be done right away anymore? Weird.

We are not having a boy but our second child is a boy and we had him done. We did our research and felt that it was best for our family. We had it done at the hospital before we left.

We will have it done at the hospital before we leave. We just feel it is the best decision.

Will you circumcise? Nope. Didn't with Liam either.
At the hospital or wait a few days? N/A
Why or why not? I don't think it is my right to take away a part of his body that may or may not have value to him. The so-called "health benefits" have been debunked many times over, so I just see it as unnecessary.

I circumscribed my boys and would if this baby was a boy. I did it before they left the hospital. Up until I was on JM I thought all boys were, lol.

Why or why not? Just a personal choice

Don't know if it is a boy but we did with our son.

Will you circumcise? Yes
At the hospital or wait a few days? When he is 8 days old during his bris (jewish circumcision and baby naming ceremony)
Why or why not? We are Jewish. I've never even considered not doing it as I've never thought of it as optional based on our traditions.

At the hospital or wait a few days? They don't do it at the hospitals anymore here, it has to be done by a Urologist.
Why or why not? It was discussed between DH and I and we decided it was best for us (DH is too and that factored into the decision).

We had it done with our son. The main reason was because my husband was also, and I thought the majority of males were and didn't want him to feel "different". If I had another son, I would probably do it again because our son is.

If I had a time machine, I might make a different decision with the first son, but I don't know. This is one of those subjects where I waffle back and forth with no clear winner in my head.

I did it with my son, but they did not do them at the hospitals there anymore. He got it done at 2 weeks old at the doctor's office. My husband at the time was not circumsised and scolded me for it. In fact he, and his family, made my life a living h*ll about it.

Me personally, I prefer circumsised, as I did my research and from personal experience. My husband now is circumsised, and if we have a boy, then he will be too.

I did with my boys and if this Bean is a boy we will do it again. Our main reason was their Dad is and we didn't want them to feel different from Daddy. Also, DH made a lot of good reasons why he was glad his parents did it...so we went with it.

We have it done at the hospital before we go.

Will you circumcise? No I won't.
Why or why not? His father isn't (not like that crap matters since we aren't together). But it's just a personal preference, if there's no medical reason for it I don't see why it needs to be done. If my doctor suggests something at his appointments then I'll consider it, but only if he really needs it. I also don't like the fact (quick or not) I'm allowing someone to hurt him.
