*If you start to notice any signs of infection, such as yellow pus-filled bumps, if the wound continues to bleed, or if you notice a spot of blood larger than a quarter in your baby’s diaper, contact your physician immediately.
During the first 24 hours post procedure, wrap a fresh gauze around the penis after each diaper change.
Following the surgery, do not immerse your baby in water. Instead, opt for a sponge bath.
Dried crust is normal after a circumcision. However, if you notice a green or yellow film that smells bad or remains wet, this could be a sign of infection and you should contact your physician immediately.
After 4-5 days, it is safe for you to give your baby a full bath.
If there is significant bleeding, such as a quarter size spot of blood in your baby’s diaper, contact your physician immediately.
During the first 24 hours after the procedure, you can administer baby Tylenol or Tempra to calm a fussy baby. The dosage will vary according to age and weight – make sure you check the bottle for requirements.
It isn’t always necessary, but a checkup following a circumcision can go a long way at putting your mind at ease that the wound is healing properly and the procedure was a success. Contact us to schedule a follow-up appointment.
