Yes babies can sleep through circumcision

My DS did. 

They came in and gave him the shot of the anesthesia. He cried a little bit like with all of his other shots but as they were waiting for it to "kick in" he fell asleep. He was asleep before, during, and after his circumcision

People say that this is not possible but he is not the only one who has done it.

I have had exactly the same experience with my son. He played with my hair while we waited for the anesthetic to kick in, then fell asleep and didn't wake up until well after the procedure was finished.

I've heard of that happening before. My mom videod her friend's kids' bris(es? Whatever the plural for Jewish circ ceremonies is) and both of her boys slept through theirs.

He was still drugged to where he had no feeling. Of course he slept through it. So whether it was local or not you still let them drug your son for an unnecessary procedure.

I mean you can feel that way all you want
You dont know the reasons we had it done. Either way people say it is not possible to sleep through and that they are in so much pain both are not always true.

You'd shut down if someone sliced off a part of your genitals too. Babies shut down to protect themselves in any kind of traumatic situation. Take a young baby in to a bowling alley or rock concert and they fall asleep to escape the stimulation. We had a fire alarm go off when one of my kids was about a month old and he looked startled for a couple of seconds then fell asleep.
