    We're having Austin on 6/17 and we've decided to not have him circumcised...DH is done so neither one of us knows how to take care of it. I'm sure the pedi and such will let us know, but are there any tips/hints anyone has to help out some? Thanks!!!

    We don't do anythign special. I think you are not supposed to pull the skin down to clean underneath. Daily bath should do all the job.

    Same as above. I think majority of British boys are uncircumised. Infact ive never met or heard of anyone that is and they dont give special advice on washing it :) xxxX

    nothing special just make sure the skin area stays some what dry, you may need to press on the area softly after a bath to dry it a bit.. never force the skin back as you know... it will do it on itself in time :)

    I was told that your not to pull back the forskin till they are at laest 6 years old to teach them to clean it but pulling it back can rip or tear it becasue its early just a bath and keep the area clean good hygine i guess s all

    Yep nothing special. You couldn't pull the skin down if you tried though because it doesn't separate for a while. Byron is almost 5 months and I can't see a separate foreskin yet but I can't remember when it does separate.

    Thanks everyone! :) I would've totally messed that up, cause I thought you were SUPPOSED to pull it back to clean under it! YIKES!
