i understand what she meant, but the thing is infants can't speak or express how much pain they are in...they don't even understand why they are in pain. adults make their own conscious decision to remove a piece a healthy tissue from their genitals, they are aware of the procedure, expect it to be painful, and can take things like vicodin and pain meds when they feel uncomfortable. we can't just assume that the healing process is easier for babies because they can't verbalize what they are going through.
