HOW TO DRESS AND FEED BEFORE SURGERY

  • Do not feed your baby for 60 minutes before your scheduled appointment. You may feed him immediately afterward.
  • Please dress him in a two-piece outfit with separate pants and shirt. This shirt remains on during the procedure. Please try to avoid snaps and zippers

Please bring the following items:

  1. Ten disposable diapers and a stack of wipes.
  2. Four cloth diapers—the type you place over your shoulder when burping the baby.
  3. Two large tubes of Vaseline petroleum jelly.
  4. A box of 50 of the 4-inch by 4-inch gauze pads. A good brand is Mirasorb or the CVS store brand. However, any brand is fine as long as it is 4”x4”.
  5. A small bottle of grape juice (4 ounces is plenty). Any brand is fine (e.g. Welch’s Grape Juice).

Plan on being in the office for approximately 90 minutes.
