Newborns & Infants
Swaddle your baby for the first 24 -48 hrs to avoid kicks which can be uncomfortable for him and provoke bleeding
Replace the gauze and Vaseline every 2 hours for the first 48 hrs, thereafter just apply Vaseline generously, feel free to use the Vaseline and gauze as long as you feel comfortable. Each time you change the gauze check for bleeding, your nurse will show you how to do this during your visit.
Do not worry about urine contamination of the gauze, however if there is stool contamination, please change the gauze, your nurse will demonstrate how to clean up following stool contamination.
