We did have Christian circumcised. Like Dawn I let DH make that decision. The doctor asked us and DH just said yes so that was that for us.
Our doctor did give Christian pain medicine and Christian never fussed at all about it when we changed his diapers.
The AAP does recommend that the baby have pain medicine now. But it is your job to check with your dr. to make sure that they are going to use pain medicine. If the dr. says no they aren't using meds. you can request another dr. that will use them.
There is an article about this in the new BabyTalk magazine. Which is where I pulled some of the info from.
The dr. gave us stuff kind of like Neosporin but for babies to put on it. If you decide on it, your doctor should sit down with you and discuss it. I know that ours did and after she talked to us she made us sign the consent paper. I feel that we were well informed by our doctor about the whole procedure.
Hope you decide what is best for you and your child
