Why use the Bobbi Shield?

The moulded structure of the Bobbi Baby Shield which is “worn inside the diaper”, creates a physical barrier between the newborn boy’s genitals and the diaper.
Faecal contact is minimised from the surgical site and bandage reducing the risk of Infection.
The Bobbi Shield is lightweight ensuring maximum comfort for the baby. The material is also flexible allowing for body position and movement from the infant.
Using the BoBBi Baby Shield during the post surgical recovery period allows for the baby to be ‘burped’ or winded either over the shoulder or on the lap, without causing discomfort and physical pressure to his circumcised penis.
