Dr. against cding..questions

DS is 21 months old, and I have been CDing for about 9 months now. His pediatrician is telling me that I need to not CD him anymore because his foreskin is very red. He is circumsized, and I never thought anything of it being as red as it is. I'm a single first time mom, and I could use some insight on this. I am determined to stick with the CD, because he lived with a staff and yeast infection the whole year + he was in sposies. I just can't help but be worried about the redness now that dr. brought it up. Is this ok or is there something wrong??

Do you use liners at all? That really helped my ds when his circ'd 'fore'skin got irritated. I used fleece liners.

Re: Dr. against cding..questions

My uncirced 6 month old gets a little red at too sometimes. What you can also try is leaving your son out of a diaper for a little bit, but I'm not sure how well that will work since yours is old enough to be very mobile! I just put Asher down on a few towels for tummy time, heh.

And using fleece liners help keep his skin a little dryer!

Ummm how is your son's foreskin red if he's circ.?

All that aside, your ped is a idiot, get a new one. DS might be irritated by the baby wash you use to bathe him if he's always been red.

She's referring to what's left of the foreskin. Just the loose skin that bunches just behind the glans.

Use fleece liners if you aren't already, and make sure it stays dry, it should heal quickly

Re: Dr. against cding..questions

What detergent are you using? My DS who is not circumcized always had horrible red burn like marks on him from the detergent I was using that had enzymes in it. We do not have that problem anymore since I switched detergents. We also use fleece liners to keep him dry with every fitted, prefold, and AIO diaper.
