My situation was a little different. My guy was born early, and they don't circ until right before discharge. I just felt like my body had failed and I had to have him early and he had already been poked and prodded way before he should have even been out of my belly. We were already leaning towards not, and then a doc told us that sometimes they regress with their eating for a few days because of the procedure, which meant he would have to stay for a few more days. That made the decision easy...I wanted my baby home!

My husband is circ'ed and when trying to decide he asked his mom why she decided to have him circ'ed and she didn't really have answers, so we decided to think a lot harder about it.

Also, I totally agree with the retracting thing...research shows that even some DOCTORS don't know any better and try to pull back the foreskin too early. Ugh.
