THINGS TO BE PREPARED FOR THE BRIS

  • 25 3” x 3” gauze pads
  • 2 tubes antibiotic ointment
  • Baby Tylenol
  • Firm sleeping pillow
  • 2 cloth diapers (or towels)
  • 2 Tallis (prayer shawls) – optional
  • Kosher sweet grape wine & kiddush cup

DAY OF BRIS — PRIOR TO BRIS

  • Do not soak or use ointments, creams or lotions on bris area; sponge bath is o.k.
  • Last feeding should be within the hour before the bris
  • Dress baby in clothing which maybe opened from the bottom and wrap baby in receiving blanket

DAY OF BRIS — AFTER BRIS

  • Apply antibiotic ointment on gauze and place on top of area at each diaper change
  • Baby may lay in any position that seems comfortable (even on stomach)
  • If baby is uncomfortable, you may give 1/2-dropperful (.4 ml) of liquid infant Tylenol

DAY AFTER THE BRIS

  • Use antibiotic ointment on gauze over entire bris area at each diaper change for the next 2-3 days.
  • The redness will subside in a few days; a soft, light-colored healing scab-tissue may form for several days. This is normal.
