God told Abraham to circumcise kids on the 8th day, the body starts to utilize Vitamin K on the 8th day which helps with clotting that helps with healing
When should the procedure be performed? Most doctors recommend that circumcision be done within a few days from the delivery of the baby. Some doctors recommend waiting two or three weeks. When the birth occurs in a hospital, circumcision is usually done within 48 hours.
Why babies die from circumcision is easy to answer: we do it before the babies can fully heal it.
God didn’t say it just because of a law or anything, he did it because he knows how the bodies of babies work and how vulnerable they are.
I can understand why parents wouldn’t look up why, but our doctors look up these things all the time, they do the circumcision! Why haven’t they looked up why we should do it and when?
This is crucial, the Jewish doctors don’t do this for law and only law! Our doctors should know!
Here is what happens if you have a Vitamin k deficiency: https://www.timeslifestyle.net/20180423/signs-symptoms-and-effects-of-vitamin-k-deficiency/
It’s not a good idea to do it right now.
It’s best to wait for when the body DOES produce it, and let the body do it. Think about it: Why doesn’t the body do it sooner? It must be crucial to wait for it.
I wouldn’t suggest eating anything with vitamin k while breastfeeding for 8 days until then.
In this article, it says that: " In Genesis 17:12, God specifically directed Abraham to circumcise newborn males on the eighth day. Why the eighth day? In 1935, professor H. Dam proposed the name “vitamin K” for the factor in foods that helped prevent hemorrhaging in baby chicks. We now know vitamin K is responsible for the production (by the liver) of the element known as prothrombin. If vitamin K is deficient, there will be a prothrombin deficiency and hemorrhaging may occur. Oddly, it is only on the fifth through the seventh days of the newborn male’s life that vitamin K (produced by bacteria in the intestinal tract) is present in adequate quantities. Vitamin K, coupled with prothrombin, causes blood coagulation, which is important in any surgical procedure."
So, why aren’t doctors following this science with our babies? It may be the removing of the skin, but these are babies! Newborns! They need gentle care, if you shake a baby they could have problems!
Why do we allow them? Answer: TOO MUCH TRUST.
We trust them to know everything about health and that isn’t healthy, we are discouraged from looking up things online but don’t let it discourage you too much! When it comes to a matter like circumcision, which is seen as a small only-for-religion thing, they may not do as much research or put in as much care for our babies as we want them to.
So, it’s best to look up when is the best time, don’t just do it as soon as possible, when you see something happen in the bible, think it through. “Why does God want this?” “Should I do it, too?” “What if it’s good for my baby?”
This is the best option, look things up! Don’t just blindly believe what the doctors tell you, let them be the second to know.
Ask for a circumcision when it is TIME, not when the baby can’t protect himself! It is important for your baby’s health!
“Robert Baker estimated 229 deaths per year from circumcision in the United States. Bollinger estimated that approximately 119 infant boys die from circumcision-related each year in the U.S. (1.3% of all male neonatal deaths from all causes). There are several case reports of death in the medical literature.”
Wait for when your babies can’t bleed out by circumcision as much to circumcise them!
This is common in the U.S. to circumcise too soon, don’t! Take time, your baby can wait!
HE won’t die!
(BTW, girls don’t need circumcisions. That’s a myth by jealous husband and pervs.)
