    Are these necessary for the hospital bag? The disposable ones I mean. I keep seeing them in asda, boots etc and wondered if anyone bothers with them or will normal knickers and pads be fine?

    I didn't use any of mine, but tbh it depends how much you bleed.

    I just bought cheap Asda/primary ones that could be thrown away if they got bloody.


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    Both my friends who have had 2 have said to me you do bleed heaps but big granny cotton bloomers from primark are better than the paper ones so thats what Ive gone for. The joke actually is I actually wear these pants anyway!! LOL

    They are useless smaller in size than you think and the elastic cuts like mad. I bought primark ones also 3 for £5.

    Granny knickers it is then :) I didn't think the paper maternity ones looked very comfy and the cheap primark ones probably cost the same anyway.

    I bought giant granny knickers. I'm ashamed to say that I still have some from my first pregnancy and I use them when I know I'm not leaving the house. They're so comfy and safe and warm :blush:


    Using Tapatalk can't see no tickers grrrrr.

    Just today I bought a pack of 5 'full briefs' from Marks & Spencer cos I had a 20% off voucher. I will take these into hospital with me along with a pack of disposals that my friend gave me (unused just to be clear lol). My only dilemma was the size to buy. I was a size 12 before I was pregnant so I just went with that, have no idea how much my bump will go down after birth. My mum said she'll be on hand to run out and buy me bigger pants if needs be lol, bless my mummy! At the mo I wear mothercare under bump ones and they are comfy x
