To save parents extra jobs in the hectic period after birth, almost all the necessary materials are provided – all you need is nappies, wipes, and a large (250ml) tub of Vaseline.
The technique used is the incision method – the tried & tested way for over 3000 years. A new single-use disposable blade is used for each baby. We do not recommend the “plastibell”/ring & ligature method at all. That way the baby has to have a ring and a ligature crushing the remainder of his foreskin often for a week or more, until it eventually falls off! In addition, the ring doesn’t always fall off on its own and further surgery could be required to remove it. (This method also requires the foreskin to be cut longitudinally to allow it to be retracted.) With the incision method, the dressing is removed only a few minutes after the procedure and the penis is left free and unrestricted.
