Circumcison is usually only done for definite medical or religious reasons. You can speak to your paediatrician who will refer your to an expert, usually a peadiatric urologist.

Go to a urologist. Our son had to have it doen and we have not had one day''s trouble ever since!! Never mind the anti-circ brigade - this is what you feel is right (and it is much more hygienic)....
Don''t know if they''ll do it so young, perhaps at 6mnths?

Speak to the urologist..

So by the way... Does a uroligist do it or a paedi?
