  • We just put Vaseline on the diaper to keep it from sticking to his penis. That is the primary reason for needing ointment.

  • The method my doctor used didn't require me to use anything, but I heard from my cousin when his son was done not to use A&D. Not sure the reasoning behind it, though. I'd stick with Vaseline, personally.

  • they just had us use vasiline. Just a dab on the tip with every diaper change.

  • I used neosporin and then vaseline on top (to keep it from sticking to his diaper)

  • My son wasn't circumsized, but my nephew was. I think they use A&D gel. I'd use whatever his pedi recommends. GL!

  • I use A&D because it doesn't stick like any other ointment. It worked great for me on my boys.

  • the hospital gave us little pre-cut gauze squares with vaseline already in them and told us to change them out every diaper change for the first couple days then after it had healed more we just kept putting vaseline on it.
