  • Until it heals over. IDK my boys weren't bothered by it at all. Change diapers frequently and put Neosporin or Vaseline on it at every change.

  • What she said. My son wasn't bothered either. May want to contact your ped to be sure it's not something else.

  • My son got whiny about an hour after they did it, when the pain meds wore off. They tole me to give one dose of tylenol and i did and he didnt whine again. Id check with your pedi.

  • Both of mine were that way for about one week. Just really goop it up with vaseline and only clean it by dripping water if absolutly necessary. I hated that part of having boys...poor thing!
