Following the procedure, there will be a square white gauze with Vaseline placed over the head of your son’s penis. Leave the gauze in place and remove it after 24 hours. If it has fallen off, do not worry – simply replace it with a fresh 3×3 gauze with some Vaseline on it and put it over the penis, then close the nappy.
There will also be a long white and brown bandage wrapped around your son’s penis. Once again, leave it in place then remove it after 24 hours. If needed, you may use some warm water to wet the dressing to help remove it. If there is some bleeding, maintain firm pressure for 5 minutes.
In the first 24 hours after the procedure, it is important to keep your son snugly swaddled (especially his legs). The more he kicks his legs, the less comfortable he may be. After 24 hours, you no longer need to swaddle him unless he finds comfort in doing so.
