Changing Your Son's Diaper

If your son is circumcised, gently rinse the area at each diaper change. It is important to keep the area as clean as possible. The gauze wrap on the penis will usually fall off within 24 hours following circumcision. Until the circumcision is healed, we recommend applying petroleum jelly or an antibiotic ointment to prevent the penis from sticking to the diaper.
