My LO was 3 days old when he got his done, he was a little fussy. I think they gave him some sugar water(not sure) and they had me feed him right after they were done because usually they will go into a deep sleep. They said that nursing would comfort him.
I just had my 3rd son, and all of them are circumcised. I never had issues with the first two. DS1 was a day old and he had no issue. DS2 was 6 days old, and didn't have an issue. DS3..... he was 5 days old, and they did it in the room next door!!! I heard my little guy crying. I am assuming it was when they were numbing him, because of the needle. I asked if they had a numbing cream first, before the needle and they didn't. He stopped crying, then cried again very briefly...then 20 min later he was in my arms again. That day he seemed pretty cranky. It broke my heart!! But the next day he seemed fine...and his little plastic ring fell off on day 5 after his procedure.
His Dr. said I didn't need to put anything on it...however; we put Vaseline on the tip of it, as the diaper would stick to the tip of his penis and he showed discomfort.
Ask your Dr. about the numbing cream first...then the local anesthetic, and try the sugar water. The clinic I went to was out of the sugar water!!
Your LO will be fine! It's harder on us mama's then on them.
MeghanKG:He was only a day old so I can't say he was more sleepy than usual, but he seemed fine.

Our son was not quite 48 hours old when he had it done. They said he didn't even cry for more than 10 seconds. He slept most of the next day, but he was 2 days old... they all do that. :)
We had his done at one week. He wasnt super fussy or any more fussy than normal. I think it was harder on me than him. He just slept a lot which was normal.
He's my fairytale, a dream when I'm not sleeping.

notquiteblushing:Well he was only two days old so he pretty much just slept all day. Good luck! I'm sure it will be fine.
this he slept and wasn't very hungry
