Re: Explain to me about cloth and circumcision

I think the idea of the vaseline or A&D is to prevent the penis from sticking to the diaper as it is healing. It also prevents helps make it easier to remove any fecal matter that might get stuck to it. For both of my boys I used vaseline and the gauze was only needed for the first day or two, after that just vaseline. I would think that a fleece linear would protect the diaper and then just follow your doctor's instructions for circ. care. I only started CD my 2nd DS at 4 months so I have never used cloth through the newborn phase.
WOHM Mama to my two boys DS#1 (12/30/2007) and DS#2 (10/7/2010). Married to my amazing DH since 7/23/2005.
