How do I Care for my Baby After his Circumcision?

Right after your baby is circumcised, lubricated gauze will be wrapped around the head of the penis, which should fall of after the first day. After that, you can clean your baby gently with warm, soapy water, then apply a dollop of petroleum jelly on gauze and place it over your baby’s penis to prevent the head of the penis from sticking to the diaper. It takes 7-10 days for the site to heal, so your baby’s penis may look raw with a yellowish coating for several days.
