If your baby was born with both parts of the female and male anatomy, what would you do???T

This condition is actually somewhat more common than spina bifida.

I know most doctors say to correct it ASAP after birth

But I would let my child wait until he or she  is old enough to decide if he or she wants to be a boy or a girl...

But I would have to choose one to decide how to dress him/her

Leave it. Let them decide. They might even decide to keep both. I would dress the unisex and get the hair cut unisex.

not sure there is anything that needs doing. i would do the same as if it only had one set of parts. give it loving care. you did not say that there were any major health issues that are life threatening. so i would be glad my child has arrived and is healthy.

I'd let my child choose! I'd give him/her a gender neutral name and try to dress them in non-gender specific clothes until they were old enough to choose what they wanted to wear and who they wanted to be.
