1 year old circumcision

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

I have no choice my son's pediatrician told me not to push the foreskin back at around 7 months and being naive I listened and took her word now when I try to push his foreskin back he screams so hopefully a circumcision will help. i need advice on surgery and treatment afterwards will be greatly appreciated.Thanks

You shouldn't be retracting him at all... He doesn't need to be circumcised... he needs you to leave his penis alone (other than normal washing like you would any other body part).

I agree with the other ladies. The foreskin shouldn't be forced. Do some research on your own. Circumcision is a very painful event, and not necessarily necessary...

I agree with Little Miss. The foreskin shouldn't be forced back, it will retract on it's own.
There are also treatments available before circumcision is needed. My son had to have a cream applied for about 6 months and it worked.

Don't do it. Do your research. You are NOT suppose to pull the foreskin back. My son started doing it himself around 2-3 years old. He cleans himself in the shower, and pulls it back on his own. Really really reconsider circumcision. Why would you have to pull it back at all?
