Re: Circ'ing a 4 month old - pros/cons?

I'd say a drawback would be his age. I'd wait until he is like 1 year old. I don't think anesthesia is that safe for a 4 month old. Obviously, it's used in emergency situations, but it's not ideal. Usually, from what I've heard from friends, is that the youngest doctors want to do it post-neonatal period, is 9 months. And they recommend waiting until 12 months. Both anesthesia and pain management medications are safer with age.
