what age do boys get circumsized?

My SO and I will definetly be having our boy circumsized, however I'm just wondering what age your boys were when the dr did it AND did your baby really freak out when they did it?

  • Usually the day after they are born they have it done, and they don't cry because they go into shock from the pain. Imagine having hundreds of sensitive nerve endings cut off, and you'd go into shock too.

  • I'm sure being pushed down the birth canal hurt too, should we leave them in forever?

  • My son wasnt even 12 hrs old. If its done in the hospital you can ask for emla creme or theres a type of shot they can give them to help with pain.
    However RABI's circumsize baby boys @ home with no meds, some babies dont even cry..

  • Nope, because our bodies naturally expell the baby. And it may be uncomfortable for them, but its not painful. Birth is natural. The foreskin being chopped off is not. If it was, the foreskin would just fall off.
