Oh yeah, full on post partum, you want the biggest, thickest pads you can find. For me, nothing scented, and nothing with a plastic top, I ended up really liking Stayfree, the kind I pictured my old maiden aunt wearing. Anything else irritated the lady bits.
The whole gun conversation fascinates me. It's not something that needs consideration here, unless someone is in the police force or a farmer & even then there are extremely strict controls in place. We really only hear about the bad side of the guns in the States when theres a tragedy involved & it makes the news here so its a little difficult to comprehend any other argument as we simply arent given that side of things.
