My husband and I can't agree on circumcision

I don't want it done, he does. 

We're at a completely stalemate here. Our son is due in a month, and we can't agree.

Realistically, I think that because NOT doing it can always be reversed (he can get in done later in life if he wants), but doing it can NEVER be reversed, we should err on the side of caution and not do it. 

Any advice?

I got my DH on board by showing him how much blood loss can kill an infant vs amount of blood loss to kill an adult. I can't remember the numbers.but I googled it. Good luck!

That is a decision I let my DH make.

I let my DH decide, but if i felt as strongly as you do, he would probably listen to my mother's instinct, as he calls it.

Tell your dh when he can find any real info supporting circumcision, you'll consider it.

If you can't agree, I think it's best to hold off.

We did not have it done. I would not "leave it up to my husband" as many woman put it just because he has one. Thankfully we agreed on the issue. If we didn't agree I would refuse to sign any paperwork to have it done and make it known that if they even thought about cutting my son without my permission they would have one hell of a law suit on their hands.

 Don't do it. Let your son decide for himself, it's his body.

my husband got trumped on this one.. told him that if we had a boy it would be our sons penis and our son could make the choice about what was done to his penis.

Are you Jewish?

Because other than cultural/ religious absolutes on the matter, I can't see why itd be important or why you'd have any less say than your DH does. Just my opinion.
