When you will circumsizing your LO? Immediately after he's born or waiting a few weeks? Or are you no going to at all?
We are doing it at the hospital. I feel better knowing he is already at the hospital, just in case. At our newborn care class we had a pediatrician come in and explain in detail about the circumcision, healing, and how to care for it. And from what I understand the pain does not last weeks, just a day or two.
If you are going to do it does it really matter when he experiences the pain? Before he heads home or after he is already home?
I'm not having a boy, but if I was I would do it within the first few days, probably before leaving the hospital.
It's usually recommend to do it between 24hrs to 72 hrs after birth. After that there is more chance of bleeding or complications. After a couple of weeks they remember pain better and it can be more traumatic.
Idani:With our first son the pedi did it the morning after he was born when he came in to meet the LO. We will do it the same way this time.

This will be our first son, but I asked my OB at my last appt who does it and when- and this is what she said as well. The day after birth, in the hospital
Our little man will not be circ'd.
sroszc:In the hospital, just like DS1.
This I think it was the second and last day we were there, I went home a day early.
Not circumcising. It's a harmful, outdated procedure and not necessary for my sons health.
