I would say that I am a pretty attached parent to our 2 year old daughter. I ebf her until she was 14 months old, and would have gone till 2 if she hadnt of weaned herself, coslept with her until she was almost 2, dont believe in the cry it out method (as it never seemed to work for us), and love baby wearing, though I discovered the concept after my daughter was already 1. The issue I am having is that my husband and I do not see eye to eye. He hated having our daughter in bed with us, thinks I carry her around too much, and was completely weirded out that I wanted to delay introducing cows milk and bf her as long as I could. None of this has been an issue. All of this seemed pretty minute and insignificant to me. As I have done research and become more aware of different parenting techniques and just become more educated as far as our options as parents goes, we have hit a road block. We definitely want to have more children. No doubt, but I am really worried that we will not be able to come to an agreement on one topic. Circumsion. I absolutely hands down, DO NOT want to have it done to any of my future sons. My husband is dead set all for it. So much so that he actually told me if I didnt consent to it,that he would take our son and have it done. His arguments were the typical, he would look different from me, I dont want him made fun of at school, its not clean. No amount of arguing would change his mind, so I dropped it, because I know it would turn into a huge fight, plus we arent even pregnant, so I didnt see the point at the time. I need help! How can I gently make my husband see that times are changing, and it isnt consider necessary anymore? That people are much more educated now, and the research shows that it isnt unhealthy? Suggestions please! I want this to be my (future) sons choice, not ours!
**Update:** My husband brought up us having more kids, last night. And in talking about it, he did finally agree to at least do some research on the topic before us making any kind of decisions! THIS IS HUGE! Total weight lifted off my shoulders, just in the fact that he is WILLING to look into it and reconsider. We will come to some kind of compromise, because we do want more kids sometime in the future, but I feel so much better knowing that he is at least willing to do some more research. :)
