    I did after my first c-section. Though I have to agree it was a lot heavier than I had before. My mum got me a huge box of the mixed ones so I had some heavy some medium etc etc. xx

    I have had 3 c sections and after all of them there is no way a tampon would stay in! The flow is super heavy, like mine was at least twice as heavy as the heaviest period I'd ever had. I had to double up maternity pads and it actually stopped me goin out as a couple of times I bled through to my clothes whilst out shopping!! Horrendous!

    Oh Jesus!! My post birth blessings stopped now and that was never very heavy but I do still have a pack of mat pads and normal pads so I guess I'll use them!

    I'm so sick of big pants!!!
