Re: Considering not circumcising. No judgments please.
Momma, you need to do what is best for you and your family! I would not worry about what others think at the end of the day no matter what you choose! I completely understand you not wanting to, especially since he will already need surgery to repair his cleft. No one wants to put their baby through more than they think is necessary. If you choose not to, that's your choice to make. If you do, that is too and you shouldn't feel guilty for it. I totally get that sometimes it is hard not to feel obligated to stick to our religious beliefs even though we sometimes question them at the same time.
If you do choose to, do you think it could be done while he is under anesthesia for his other surgery, that way you know he doesn't feel any of it? Just a thought, I have no idea if that is even possible.
