What do I do if the Gauze is Stuck on my Baby’s Penis After his Circumcision?

To remove gauze that has adhered to the penis, apply a large amount of petroleum jelly over the penis and the bandage, allowing it to soak in for 15-20 minutes. Then, gently peel away the gauze from the areas that are no longer stuck. Continue to apply petroleum jelly until the gauze is removed. Alternately, you can gently sit your baby in a shallow tub of warm water and soak the penis until the gauze loosens, taking care to keep his umbilical cord area dry.
