CafeMom Team will be posting Baby Encyclopedia questions in the Babies Category from Tuesday till Friday of this week. For every question you answer, you'll be entered to win one of the $25 Gap Gift Cards that we're giving away each day!
But there's a catch... only "real" answers will be entered to win the $25 Gap Gift Card. If you do not have tested advice or an informed opinion on the topic, please wait to answer the next question. There will be plenty of opportunities to enter the contest.
We are using these questions to create a mom-tested resource for new and expecting parents, so try to use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling when writing your answers.
Read Official Rules.

I think Circumcision is largely about preference. In most of the families I know the decision is based on Dad's situation. I personally will prefer to have my son circumcized. I had an adult friend who at the age of 36 decided he needed to have a circumcision and he was in pain for weeks. He told me I had absolutely better have it done for my son at birth. Although there is a lot of debate about what an infant feels when he is circumcized I have never actually seen one show any pain afterwards.

I recently read a very interesting study.. More baby boys die a year because of complications during circumcision than in car crashes!!
