View Full Version : When Can I Start Using Wipes?

My son, Ryan, is almost 2 weeks old. I've been using wet washclothes on his bottom since we came home from the hospital. His circumcision plastibell (sp?) ring fell off this weekend. When can I start using wipes?

You could probably start now, but use the ones without scent and alcohol. If you see any irritation, just go back to water for a little while.

With our first son we waited 3 or 4 weeks but with our second son we started using them right away. They never seemed to bother him until he started getting diaper rash when he got older. I usually buy the Luvs brand of wipes.

I used wipes from the get go, although Nathaniel was not circumsized.
