The devil is in the details:

MYTH: Circumcision makes a baby boy easier to clean.

Fact: It takes considerable care and effort to clean and care for a circumcision wound; much more effort than it takes to clean and care for an intact baby. Intact care: a simple wipe or rinse of the outside of the penis, like you would a finger. The child is not retractable until age range of 2-13.

MYTH: Healing from a circumcision is painless.

Fact: The circumcision wound is extremely tender and sore 

and the baby will experience burning pain with every urination.
