I AM HAVING A BOY AND I ASKED MY NURSE A FEW QUESTIONS ABOUT CIRCUMSISING.

ONE WAS WOULD THEY GIVE MY SON LOCAL ANESTHETIC SO HE DIDNT FEEL ANYTHING? AND SHE SAID NO!!!!!!

MY HOSPITAL DOES NOT ALLOW LOCAL ANESTHETIC FOR THAT!!! EVEN IF YOU ASK!!!

THIS IS HORRIBLE!

MY CHILD IS NOT AN ANIMAL!  :(   SO SAD.

Babies scream until you can't hear them anymore. I hated assisting. I think it's everyone's right to decide, I just couldn't do it to my son.

No, they feel pain. I've been there for all 3 of my boys. People who say they don't are mistaken.



Quoting babynurse244:

I've worked at a few different hospitals Some give anesthesia, some don't. Supposedly the baby doesn't "feel" pain. Yeah, right. I've helped on circs, that's the closest I've come to passing out during a procedure. We didn't circ my son.
