It is just fine to use a bandaid. But wait until bath time to take it off, after soaking for a few minutes. Then it won't hurt.

it'll be fine to use a bandaid. Just use a little baby oil on the adhesive at his next bath to help remove it more painlessly. Thankfully at his age, he doesn't have to worry about wearing shoes.

sure it is ok. They put bandaids on my babies when they got their first shots at 1 week old, Use the cloth kind not the plastic kind, I think the cloth is better.

It should be just fine. If he's allergic to adhesive it'll turn a bit red and rashy, but that's uncommon.
