What kind of pads did you use after baby? Like in the hospital and when you got home? I just went out and got a pack of Always Maxi Leakguard plus, long & super. I guess I should have asked before hand. Hopefully those will hold up. Im just trying to get my bag together.

Massive ones. Like the ones that are an inch thick and you feel like you have a towel shoved in between your legs. I bled really heavily and they were the only things that kept it in.
I had bought some of the always maxi ones and they just didn't cut it, the nurse at the hospital gave me a pack of the thicker ones.

This. We stocked up big time. Every time they would bring more in my DH would put them away so they'd bring more in. When I eventually ran out at home, I got the super absorbent from Always. No wings. Eck.

Oh and definitely grab extra mesh/fishnet panties from the hospital...I think they are so comfy and you aren't ruining your own undies.

I got a bunch of those too. My kid is almost 2 and I think I still have a pair or 2 in my bathroom cabinet that I ended up not using. :lol: But, they were definitely more comfy, especially since I had a c section and didn't want anything around my incision, I could pull those suckers wayyyy up! :P

i grabbed the stash in the hospital. those were nice cause they were long and they didnt have the annoying wings.

I basically used the ones the hospital gave, since they were so big and held a lot. Then I used Always Infinity, so much drier!

I used the ones at the hospital while I was there, and i took some home with me when i got sent home but i went and got some Kotex Overnight pads, the maxi size ones. They worked just fine for me.

The bigger the better. And my midwife suggested putting one on top of the other just in case. It felt like a nappy but I would often have blood on both pads so I'm glad I did it.
