Thank you asha chaudhry
For a newborn, just gently clean with cotton dipped in warm water. Later u can splash or sponge the penis while bathing baby.
Pat dry without rubbing the area.
It's important to note that no attempt to push the foreskin must be made. The skin is normally attached when babies are born, and will gradually separate by itself. Forceful pushing may cause tearing or worse.
Once my son was 4-5 months, his maalishwali would apply a little coconut oil to the tip, while giving him his oil massage and just move the skin a bit.no force was applied at all.
Let me know if u have any further query!
Just as doc said even my mom just apply coconut oil on tip on penis and push the skin without applying force, then she clean it water and pat dry.
