If you have the advice of a doctor, then it's probably best to still wait and see. If it seems to be bothering the baby, then you can ask a nurse or pharmacist or your doctor what he would recommend to reduce the discomfort.

If it stays around for a long time, I would have him re-checked to make sure what your baby is experiencing is just a normal case of hemorrhoids.
