For 7 days following the bris, apply a 3"x3" gauze square that is coated with Vaseline or an antibiotic cream. This prevents the penis from sticking to the diaper which can cause bleeding. Wait 1 day to give the baby a bath.
It is normal to see:
If you see active bleeding, please apply pressure on the gauze for 5 minutes. Call me if the bleeding doesn’t stop.
The baby may be mildly fussy for the first 24 hours; however, Tylenol is usually not necessary.
Feel free to call me with any questions. (952) 838-5042
