I am trying to get my stuff together for after I give birth and I am clueless on what type of pads to use. I have heard and read mixed things on here and I would love to hear what worked best for you. I did stock up one some depends for the first few days, and I have read that even with depends some women bleed so much they need a liner in it. So what should I go with? I also got tucks pads for after birth as that was reccomended to me. Anything else I need to know?
They give you pads at the hospital but right when you get home I would use Always Overnight w/ wings. That's what I used and they worked fine.Depends on how much you're bleeding.
POISE! Depends gave me a really bad rash on my thighs, my skin was coming off in chunks.
Poise pads are really cheap and incredibly absorbent. I bled forever after I had the bebe & had basically NO bladder control, I never leaked with those bad boys.
I used hospital pads and then always overnights with wings
I like my pads super absorbent lol
i didn't bleed bad at all....I used the extra long always pads....they worked fine except sometimes I would have to put two longways in my panties because if I would bend over or something I would bleed out the end of the pad. But those worked great for me...hope this helps
I didn't bleed to bad just for a really long time. I used the nighttime maxi pads. they are really long and thick. I liked the always brand they worked best for me. I also just changed them often as i could helped to not bleed through.
i used always over nights with wings too.... they are the best!
They give you some super maxi's at the hospital. After I got home I was good with the regular with wings and the regular overnight pads. I didn't bleed too heavily after the 4th day but it did last a while.
i used the hospital ones when i was in the hospital and when i got home all i used were pantie liners thats all i needed stopped bleeding 3 days afer i got home
over night with wings
Quoting the drunk pregNOT.:
I was curious about this topic, as well... and....
Should I invest in great big white granny panties... for bleaching purposes?
The ones that they give you at the hospital are AWESOME!!! Just ask them for a bunch to take home they are usually very generous
