I'm sure they use some kind of pain medicine. I didn't get a chance to ask anything or talk to the doctor. They came in & asked me if I wanted him circumcised & when I said yes they came back that night & took him while I was sleeping. His doctor came back in when they were done, told me everything went well, and that he was down in the nursery & a nurse would bring him in to me soon. They never did bring him back to me I had to walk down the hall to get him myself.

Pain relief for infant circumcision ranges from nothing to sugar water, to a numbing cream, to a shot, or a combination. Stronger pain relief is generally too dangerous for a baby. I have done a few years of research on the matter, and I feel that none of the pain relief measures for infant circumcision are adequate enough. There are also very few safe pain management options for after the surgery, and again, I do not feel that the pain relief is strong enough. We opted against circumcising our son for this and many other reasons.
