Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

we just had our little boy in december and they did the circumcision the day after he was born.. I believe that that is the normal time.. hope that helps =)
my son was born in november 2009 and he was circumcized the same day he was born. it was literally a couple of hours
Maybe it depends on when they are born during the day? Or on the hospital, Dominic was born at 6:04 pm so maybe the dr was out for the day already lol.. weird I thought it was the same for everyone
If the baby has a vitamin K injection then circumcision can take place shortly after birth. However, if you opt to not have a vitamin K shot wait until the baby is at least 8 days old.
