You would not want to have a cosmetic procedure done to your newborn baby without understanding exactly what was going to happen to him. These videos are important to watch. (If it's hard for you to watch, imagine how hard it is for a newborn to go through.) No matter what kind of pain management is used during a circumcision, your baby will still feel pain. This is not a "little snip." It is a significant loss of purposeful skin.
Note: Stanford School of Medicine videos are helpful in seeing the procedure of circumcision, but the audio is a voice over so you do not hear the baby's screams or see his face.
