Newborns are usually circumcised at about 1-3 weeks of age.
Bath him on the morning of the procedure and don't put on any creams or ointments.
It is a good idea to feed him about an hour or so before the circ, so that he is not starving hungry but no so full that he vomits.
I put a dressing onto the wound which can be removed after 1-2 days.
Important. Call me if one of three things happen.
1. If there is bleeding.What I mean is a significant ooze, not a tiny streak of blood.
2. If the dressing comes off on the first day.
These can indicate that the dressing may be too loose.
3. He must pass urine within 6 hours or so .
If he doesn't the dressing may be too tight .
Whatever happens don't panic. Just call me and things usually are easily sorted out.
Call me any time you are worried
