When should my baby be circumcised?

ANSWER

The sooner you schedule your baby's circumcision, the better. Make sure an experienced professional does the procedure. In some states, an obstetrician does it in the hospital. In other states, pediatricians do it. A religious leader who is trained in circumcision is another option.
