Can I wear my baby right after a circumcision?

Does anyone know? He was circumcised on Monday and he is fine and doesn't appear to be in any pain, but I am wondering if I shouldn't wear him for a bit b/c in both the Baby Bjorn and the way I carry him in the Moby Wrap, the bottom support goes between his legs. Should I wait until after the follow up with the doctor and check with her?

  • I think he should be fine he has a padded diaper on and everything, but do what you feel is best, my son was cut at 4 and a half months cause I wanted to make sure they numbed it, anyways he never showed signs of uncomfort and was his happy go lucky self from day 1

  • give it about a week and a half to heal then you'll be fine

  • Maybe you should try a Moby wrap, you can wear the baby but you can put him in it so his legs aren't spread apart. Just a suggestion :)
