How many are you ordering? Our birth kits that are designed by my midwives only have 2 pairs of these but I remember that I went through a ton of these when I had Gigi at a hospital. I am wondering if it would be wise to order extra?

I'm not a home birth mama. For my hospital birth with my first I took home like 12 pairs of the panties because i knew I wouldn't be having another hospital birth with any of my other children and I figured I could use them the next time.
I didn't end up using them after my birth center birth, I used Depends for the first two days and then just regular undies with pads after that. That's what the birth center recommended. I thought it would be really weird, but it really wasn't and it kept leaks to nonexistant during the heavy bleeding period. I will do the same after this birth (birth center again).
I have never worn the mesh panties. I wore Depends the first couple of days after Lily was born and had a freezer stocked with pads that had witch hazel on them and wore them in the Depends.
preppymama:probably a stupid question, but where can you order them?!
That is where I am ordering most of my birth supplies.
