The purpose of this gauze is to prevent the head of the penis from getting irritated by or sticking to the diaper. If it falls off in the first 2 hours, please replace it with a fresh gauze with Vaseline. After the first 2 hours there is no need to replace the gauze.
Keeping your son in motion as much as possible following a circumcision can distract him from the pain. Walking, talking, rocking, and singing and dancing together can take his mind off his pain, as can using a bottle or pacifier to stimulate the sucking reflex when you aren't breastfeeding.
Place a quarter-sized amount of ointment, Aquaphor, petroleum jelly, A&D, or antibiotic (bacitracin, Neosporin, or generic), on the penis or in the diaper to keep the raw surface from sticking to the underpants or diaper. It is important to use this for 5 to 7 days.
A yellowish-white film will appear on the tip of the penis until the healing is complete. This is normal. Do not use baby wipes on the penis until the circumcision has healed.
Proper healing can take several weeks. In the initial days after circumcision, the skin around the penis may appear red and swollen. As healing takes place, redness will fade and swelling will subside. Likewise, any scar tissue that's raised or bumpy in the first days and weeks after the surgery should shrink.
