Yeah, I think too that even after the initial really painful period, when it becomes just mild pain or discomfort, it may be difficult for a parent to recognize it for what it is. Even though they arnt in acute pain anymore, they still are uncomfortable and therefore are fussy. I honestly never could figure out why everyone seemed to complain about their babies crying all the time. I mean yeah, soemtimes a baby is just like that, girl or boy, but I noticed that most of the people complaining were parents of boys. Like when I had my own first, I was still in high school and in a teen pregnancy class with other pregnant teens. All of us but 1 had boys (must've been something in the school water, lol) and almost everyone complained. We never really discussed circumcision at all though, so I am not sure who circ'd and who didnt, but I didnt, I know my one friend didnt (she was so cool hippy type), and obviously the mom with the girl didnt and IIRC, we were the only ones who were like um, our babies arnt crying all the time?
Also, my friends boys were circ'd later (the twins when they were 8 weeks old, the new one at a week) and they all had dramatic changes in their personalities. They went from calm, happy babies for the most part, to constantly crying, to still crying a lot and being extremely clingy. They never went back to that happy baby state....while my kids have all kept that for the most part (yeah, they are still babies and have thier moments, but I am constantly getting compliments on how happy my babies are)
