My other two are intact, and this baby will be as well. At least I consoled myself that it was done under general anesthesia by a ped uro surgeon .
There are real medical reasons for circumcision and no one should feel bad about that when it happens. You made a decision for your child that will improve his quality of life. You made an informed decision for your child and found a skilled doctor to care for him. Be proud of that!
