I never made any padsicles, just used the ones in the hospital. I definitely didn't feel like I needed them when I got home from the hospital, even with my 2nd degree tear. So I personally wouldn't recommend spending a ton of time making a lot!
Question for those of you who purchased the witch hazel with aloe in it...if you're making the padcicles, do you still need to add extra aloe or since its together that's all you'd need? I think it was @sweaterboots and @nda_roxybabe but I could be wrong!
