Congratulations! You certainly seem to be doing everything exactly the way it should be done. Great for your son!
Now, about the tip of the foreskin, I noticed my grandson's foreskin being red at the very tip and was concerned. But since it never bothered him, we never applied anything and simply left it alone. We thought it might be a little irritation (or diaper rash) but as it turned out, it remained that way even to today.
He is very fair, blond, blue eyes, and I now suspect that it is just his natural coloring.
The very tip of the foreskin is definitely red. But he is already 6 yrs. old and has never had any problems with it.
That might be the case with your son. Or he might have a little diaper rash in which case the A&D ointment should help. Although I really think fresh air works even better.
By the way, are you nursing? Mother's milk right on the affected area several times a day is the best by far.
