  • My sons Dr. recommended Children's Tylenol but I would check with your sons Dr. and find out exactly what he wants you to do.

  • Nothing honey. Keep the ointment on it, you can use Neosporin w/ Pain help if it makes you feel better - but just follow the hospital's instruction and he'll be just fine. I had two boys, both circumcised, they seemed fine when I cleaned it; which was every time I changed them. I was gentle and applied the salve the hospital sent home. Here ya go, sweetie...... this will help you out. http://pregnant.thebump.com/new-mom-new-dad/newborn-basics/qa/circumcision-care.aspx

  • I was told to use just the neosporin with pain and he never seemed uncomfortable.

  • Nothing - if he's fairly new, he's way too young for anything. I didn't use anything for my son and he never seemed to be in pain, didn't cry excessively or anything. Just love on him.
