I will be having my son circumcised, my friend had her boy and I noticed she puts Vaseline on his penis. How does that work with cloth diapering? Thanks!

My assumption would be unless you are using a cloth safe ointment that you would need to use disposable diapers... or a disposable liner just like any other time you may need to use a non cloth friendly cream. I don't know anything about healing time from this, but I would talk to your dr. and find out what they recommend for care/treatment. I'd imagine your boy would be in a lot of discomfort, having the wound rub against anything would be excruciating, so find out what they say.

^ yep, thats right

you would either need to wait until he is healed to start using cloth, or use a liner to protect the diaper. My kids are not circumcised but im positive that the cream(s) you use are not safe for diapers

We used sposies when we had our son circumcised, he still hadn't lost his umblical stump and the cloth diapers went up to high and would have rubbed. The doctor had us use neosporin (so not cloth safe).

We used a combo of cloth and sposies the first few weeks. Mostly because he was smaller than we expected and most of his diapers were too big. When he was in cloth, we put a fabric liner in. I wasn't an issue at all.
