Below I will outline the procedure that I use for all circumcisions. I will explain them in detail when you call to schedule appointment:
To save parents extra jobs in the hectic period after birth, almost all the necessary materials are provided – all you need is nappies, wipes, and two large (250ml) tubs of Vaseline (best for the baby to use only the Vaseline brand).
The whole appointment usually lasts an hour but the actual procedure only takes a few minutes.
First the baby is weighed to make sure that he is healthy and gaining weight. The baby is then given orally, a measured dose of painkiller. An anaesthetic (spray – not injection!) is then applied to numb the area. As a result of all this the baby usually stays quiet right the way through!
