DS1 is circ'd as well our next son will be. Agreed with the lots of Vaseline, don't be afraid to glob it on there. I am packing my own tub of Vaseline actually, they provide it but its a small tube and I like to use gobs of it so I'll go through a lot. Our son's pediatrician did the procedure the day after birth, he comes and checks the baby out at the hospital within 24 hours of being born and does the circ if needed. Also, they put a numbing cream on it beforehand to help dull the sensation. It wasn't horrible and he was back in 15 or 20 minutes sleeping away. Took about a week to heal, pretty sure it was healed before the umbilical cord fell off.
