The mohel will guide the parents with respect to continued care of the baby.  



An examination is done on the day after the Brit:

The mohel will remove the bandage and check the recuperation of the cut. Occasionally he will put on a second loose bandage, which the parents can carefully remove while bathing the baby the next day, and the mohel will guide the parents concerning further care over the coming days.

The most important and fundamental thing for the parents to do after the brit is to maintain strict cleanliness to avoid any inflammation and to expedite the healing process.

 

Babies vary greatly in their reactions; some are more calm and quiet than usual and some are more restless.  Bloodstains will appear on the babyís diapers as a result of the bandage absorbing the blood, and when wet by the babyís urinating; this is usual. (Of course, care should be taken that the bleeding is not excessive, as will be explained hereunder.)  

 

Vithamerfen ointment or liquid Polidine, or special powder for a brit available in pharmacies.

 

  • To maintain strict cleanliness of the baby and to diaper him frequently.

  • To make sure that he urinates regularly (check that the diaper is wet).

  • Donít try to remove the bandage or to open it; this should be done only by the mohel. If the bandage has fallen off, inform the mohel immediately.

  • To make sure there is no excessive bleeding after the brit.  For the sake of good order, bleeding which requires attention can be determined in two instances: 1) when the blood

  • The baby can be placed in his crib to rest and be fed as usual; he may be placed on his stomach to rest; this may release gases from which he may be suffering.

  • Donít hesitate to approach the mohel about any apprehensions which you may have, at any time of day or night.

The most important and fundamental thing for the parents to do after the brit is to maintain strict cleanliness to avoid any inflammation and to expedite the healing process.

 

  • To diaper the baby frequently

  • To bathe the baby at least once a day (warm, soothing water; soap can be used too), preferably with liquid baby soap

  • To cleanse the area with ointment or fluid as directed by the mohel.

REMEMBER, the more careful you are about cleanliness, the quicker the wound will heal.  

 

About three days after the brit a whitish/yellowish scab may appear which is a natural and proper secretion; its own biological bandage. Donít try to remove it or touch it; it will disappear on its own when the healing process is completed.  As long as it is there, keep putting on ointment (using Q-tips).

This scab will lessen each day by patching the two ends of the skin and bringing them together.  Even about a week and a half later, on average, the skin may still be swollen and red, and this can take up to a month to clear up.

Sometimes, after a few days, there are bloodstains around the area of the Brit.  Do not be alarmed, all is well! The reason for this is that sometimes the diaper sticks to the place of the brit and this might cause a drop of blood. This will stop by itself.  In unusual cases where the staining does not top, contact the Mohel.

If you are in doubt concerning any of the above matters please contact us immediately.
