jaq i think the argument is that when newborns have it done, there is much less bleeding generally than in an older baby or adult. i know newborns have complications, but generally it is a quick procedure but where if you wait until the baby is much older or a grown man, its full out surgery. i know when sam had it done he was over a week old and bled a lot more than he would have had he had it done right after birth. not advocating for circ, just explaining.
