I know some people said to just get Depends, but those things are diapers and I just wont be happy in them.
so what brand are you /did you buy? overnight relief is best?
and how many do you think you will go through?
I used to love Kotex and tried to buy the same kind I used 15 years ago (before I used tampons) but, surprise surprise - things have changed and they don't sell them any more.
I went with the same brand and most absorbant I could find. I only bought one package because I want to see if I like them before I buy more.
ok, TMI but here goes -
I'm not bleeding very heavily at 4 days PP, but I didn't really tear. My OB described what I have as 'road rash' that only required a few stitches.
I'm using Kotex overnights right now and have some other lighter pads as well. I did use the diaper sized pads for the first day or so in the hospital.
KrisM86: I have heard lots of recommendations for using Always Infinity post-partum. Most people also say that whatever brand you get, you should get the overnights especially for the first few days.
KrisM86:I'm overwhelmed with all the choices since I haven't really used pads for years...I always go with tampons. I have heard lots of recommendations for using Always Infinity post-partum. Most people also say that whatever brand you get, you should get the overnights especially for the first few days.
I picked up the Always Infinity pads as well.
