My husband and our first son are circumcised. Our sons from our previous marriages are circumcised. Our Dec. 2008 baby was not able to get circumcised immediately after birth because he was a preemie and they determined him to be too small(they actually measured his penis with a measuring tape). The insurance would only cover it if it was done within the first two weeks of life and then not again until twelve months of age. We have an appointment set for his circumcision in January. Since he is going to be twelve months old, they are going to have to use general anesthesia. I think the uncircumcised penis looks kind of funny. I'm just not sure if the benefits of circumcision(including him looking just like dad and brothers) are worth the risk of general anesthesia. What do you think?
