I was told Vaseline on a piece of gauze, and make a 'tent' over his penis... I have had 3 sons, and circumcisions always went well for us :)

I put loads of vaseline on, changed diapers very often, and let the gauze fall off by itself. I think I did vaseline for a week and a half just to be safe.

Vaseline every diaper change.

My youngest was born in Japan, and they have a small piece of gauze around the penis, then a larger piece of gauze over that. They also tape the penis up to minimize touching the diaper. They do not use Vaseline, but they do have a special liquid that they squirt on the penis to clean it every diaper change. We didn't do all that though. It seemed a bit much.

This is what I did too.

Our two sons had a plastibell. We didn't do anything other than make sure they stayed clean.

This! I think for the first two days we used neosporin, too, but after that just vaseline.
