Hi, how do you claim for the medisave at dr sidek clinic?
I Have done my 2 mThs old baby at dr sidek. The amount is $350 deductible by medisave and you just need to pay $25 cash for medicine. Bring along the baby's birth cert, and if you are using your medisave will b your IC and your CPF statement
Isn't a few weeks old too young? Hubby wants to wait till he's 6 but I'm thinking baby is better cos he'll only be drinking milk so no need to pantang on food. KK does it well right?
Ps. Besides religion purpose, for me personally I think it's sooo much cleaner. If with foreskin, cleaning has to be really thorough. If not when you pull the skin back, OMG.... STINKS!
No worries on the food part since baby will only be drinking milk and faster recovery+ lesser hassle on the wound since he doesnt move about much. Furthermore they won't remember going through such pain when they grow up hehee!
is it a MUST to circumcise boys??
Hi Mai Chiang...It a personal choise of course, but for me it is now a must.
I have two boys. Im chinese and our family did not practice it or talk about it. Our first I did not get circumicised, but he kept getting infections. This was really serious in some cases and we opted for circumcision. After the proceedure he never has another infection. The second we had done after birth and he has not had one infection. My friends and family who opted for circumcision at birth never have problems with infection, of those that did not circumcise almost all have had problem with infections (despite tring to keep it clean, use creams, etc). To date almost half of my friends and family who did not have their sons circumcise after birth have opted to do it. In my view better to do it and do as young as possible as the proceedure is very simple early in life.
How old your son? you doing it for religious reasons?

mi boi is 6 mnth old..we dont do for our boi in our religion or race..and i've never heard of boiz havin infection..hmmmm..shall ponder ova diz,thks!=D
I'm a first time mom. Never knew much about circumcision, my family is Chinese and did not do it or talk about it. Hubby did not do it. I am expecting a boy and the topic came up at work. Once of my friends mentioned she did her boy coz cleaner etc. She said a lot of Chinese do now days for hygiene not religion. Hard decision.... Anyone do or thinking to do for hygiene not religion? and when/where should I do?

Is it really pain free for your baby? Does he cry when doing the doc are doing it or when he pees, or when you changing diaper or during bath?
Is it hard to take care of it?
Sorry first child and my mother also no experience dunnoe what to expect.
My boy is 3 weeks old this week
On the first day cannot bath so better bath him first before going there to do the procedure.
Only given paracetemol and no local anaesthesia, clean with water from 2nd day onwards.
The ring will drop off after about 5 days. Was told to give paracetemol for 3 days incase baby is in pain and since he cannot tell.
I just brought my boy to circumcise. Does everyone give the painkiller to their boy?
Did your boy cry every time he urinate?
