The Basic Information - All You Need to Know Consolidated

I get many phone inquiries months in advance of births. Sometimes the baby is a boy, and sometimes the parents don’t know yet. (Obviously those who know they are having girls don’t call!)

I am always happy to discuss all matters in advance of the bris. But for ease of reference, here is all the information you need (some of these links are at the top of the page as well). Of course, any topic you'd like to research more can be found in the Topical Index.
                
Here are the supplies you need for the bris, and for the aftercare.

If you want to consider procuring a numbing agent for the bris (most people don't), here is information about analgesics that might be helpful to you - speak with your pediatrician if you need a prescription.
                
Here are the honors you need to think about and assign for the bris ceremony
                
Here is a summary of what a classic bris ceremony looks like.     
                         
                
                
Here is an explanation of how things will look like in the few days and weeks following the bris.
                
Here is a long term care reminder for some babies, and another for babies who gather much baby fat over the next several months. 

Here is a link to the Honorarium page - guide to figuring out what the bris costs. It is different for everyone (there is much flexibility), but costs and considerations are explained here

And finally, an important reminder to every husband!
