feeling conflicted

i know there are plenty of opinions about this topic, and i’m unsure what to do. my boyfriend wants to get our son circumcised and i personally want to cry thinking about it! i can’t imagine putting him through that pain and the healing process. we haven’t came to an agreement on it but his appointment is set for this month. i really want to cancel it because i’m not certain it’s the right thing to do just yet. im afraid i will spend forever hating myself and regretting putting my baby through that kind of pain. what would you do if you were faced with an elective surgery? would you put it off until you’re 100% certain this is what you should do? or just do it and hope you don’t hate yourself for not waiting until you were positive about doing it?

My son was totally unbothered by it. I’m not a fan, but my husband wanted him and the boys to all be the same. It went fine

We had our son circumcised before we left the hospital and when they brought him back he was fine, calm & collected. Didn’t take long either.

I did it. My baby showed no pain when I cleaned him, when he peed or when the gauze fell off (he had a gauze around it and it fell by the 2nd day) No blood or anything after that. They also put a cream on it so he didn’t feel any pain. They still feel some discomfort (that’s what the doctor said)It’s your decision, so many parents don’t do it and so many do. You’ll make the right decision for YOU. ❤️😊

The medical benefits are minimal, countries are starting to ban the practice completely, it is painful for the infant, it is becoming increasingly common for Americans to opt out. Most European countries don’t do it, and I opted out for my little one. No regrets
