  • Both of mine were done in the hospital by my OB (they are 9 and 6 months now). My older one was done the day after he was born and was healed before the 1 week apt. The 2nd was done right before we left. We were actually weren't released until really late that night because my OB had an emergency delivery right when she was prepping to do his circ that afternoon (she apologized profusely, lol). He was seen 5 days later by his ped and was just about healed. They were both fully healed by 1 week.

  • He was circumcized in the hospital. It was pretty quick, maybe 2-3 days?

  • my nephew was done in the hospital the next day after he was born. and i belive it took about a week or two to completely heal. about the same time as it take the umbilical cord to fall off.
