  • my son had to wait until he was 9 months...just let him lay without a diaper for a lil bit and keep vasiline on it or whatever your doc says to use

  • Just lots of love. Use tons of goop on his penis for extra protection.

  • The best cure for baby is to breastfeed. This is yet another reason breastfeeding is best. Breastmilk releases a pain reliever for baby and helps more then anything else you can do or give. Of course you must also follow the proper care that doctor gave you for healing the area.

  • I wont bash you but I hate this type of question....why did you circ in teh first place? No, I said I would not bash..................Are you nursing? You can put breastmilk on it. He might cry when he pees etc. keep him dry as possible. Let him air out without diaper.

  • Anon at 9:14, she circed because she wanted to. It's none of your business. Anyway, he's going to be miserable and cranky today. I have 2 boys and they were both miserable the day they were circumcized and for about 12 hours afterwards, everytime they peed it hurt and they screamed. After that, they were fine. I put A&D ointment on their winky to keep the diaper from sticking to it. Let him nurse as much as he wants to for comfort and he'll be okay.

    A friend of mine gave birth at a birthing center and got her boys circumsized a few days later.

  • i did different things to take his mind off the pain by letting him suckle on a piece of ice, or just giving them lotsa love and attention.
