My first DS had plastibell, it took about 12 days to fall off. My other two boys had it done freehand, no plastic or metal ring. I had to use vaseline and gauze for about a week.
I didn't know there was more then one way to do it! The bill that I just got for it says, "Circumcision with clamp and block". I also didn't know that some OB's preform circumcisions! Was I the only one that didn't know that? I am glad that J didn't have something that had to fall off, I would have been a nervous wreck. I hate the umbilical stump, I can't imagine waiting for something to fall off of his boy parts!
