So I'm having a little boy in about 3 weeks. I already have one little boy and he was circumcised in the traditional manner with no problems or complications at all. My sister in law just had a little boy and the method they used on him - the PlastiBell method - is supposed to be a more "humane" method. They put a plastic ring around the tip of the little boy's penis and tie it off with a string then you just wait for the skin to fall off... Does anyone else think this is far from humane or is it just me?!
My first son healed up in a matter of days (I think like 4 to be exact) and it didn't even bother him at all. I just can't imagine waiting almost 2 weeks for the skin to just fall off... It seems to me like that would hurt a lot more than a traditional circ procedure. I also know that there are a lot of risks and complications for the little boy if you don't have him circumcised, but I just could not do that to my poor baby
Any thoughts or suggestions ? TOTALLY FLIPPING OUT ABOUT THIS
