"Oh, he slept right through it." MYTH

Reality check: Not possible without total anesthesia, which is not available. Even the dorsal penile nerve block leaves the underside of the penis receptive to pain. Babies go into shock, which though it looks like a quiet state, is actually the body’s reaction to profound pain and distress.  Nurses often tell the parents ”He slept right through it” so as  not to upset them. Who would want to hear that his or her baby was screaming in agony and then went into shock?

He either passed out or went into shock, but your a fool if you believe he slept through it. A doctor would NEVER tell you that he passed our or went into shock. "He slept through it"  is the best way around the ugly truth.
