I'm going to visit my sister and newborn nephew this weekend. He was just born yesterday, and when I'll be there he will be status post a circumcision. I had a great experience with EC and my 3 children, but my boys were all intact so I really question if EC and a newly circumcised newborn is the right thing to do?
If you had to aim or position the freshly wounded penis, wouldn't that have some pain associated with it that could create negative communication? I am trying to convince her to wait until it is healed. Not to mention (I posted this on the circumcision forum) I am reluctant to help because the sight of the wound really bothers me. I'm pregnant right now, so in that emotional,queasy stage and I believe in newborns being intact so I kind of want to stay out of it. But just wondering if circumcisions and EC are compatible in the newborn stage..
