    Sorry if its TMI, I had my little girl a week ago and have been wearing pads since. I am now quite sore from wearing them.

    I am still bleeding a little bit so need the pads. Is there anything I can use to soothe it?

    I am seeing Dr on Friday but would love to soothe it before then.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not a hundred percent but isn't tea tree oil good for that sort of thing? Maybe in a bath? Sorry I'd probably Google it and change sanitary towel make maybe? X

    Boots maternity pads are smooth and quite gentle.

    I would recommend buying some teatree oil and lavender oil. Mix 8 drops of each with a tablespoon of milk - and add that to a nice warm bath - no bubbles though, just use the oil.

    Hope you feel much better soon xxx

    I used tea tree oil in the bath! Not sure it helped, it was for stitches mainly but I had the soreness for a couple of weeks and have been fine the last few days, hopefully it wont last long for you xx

    My mw suggested I have some pad free time and just use an old towel to lie on at night? Also you could use an ice block wrapped in a tea towel and put it on your sore bits to take the pain away a bit xx
