Changes

I have a friend who's due to have a baby in September. Thanks to ultrasound, she already knows it's a boy (where's the fun in that?) and is now busy planning his circumcision. She's also decided not to breastfeed but to bottle feed from the start.
Only twenty years ago the movement NOT to circumcise except for medical/religious reasons was just getting off the ground, and breastfeeding was considered the only 'proper' alternative. Has thinking changed that much in such a short time?
