    i found that mothercare pads were crappy. and the blood seemd to just stay on the surface instead of soaking up..

    ive got incontinence pads this time..lol.. nice wide.. long pads

    just remember that your post natal bleed is very different for most people compared to their usual periods.. i personally cant say what pads were good.. coz i found them all crap.. i used 2 mothercare ones..at a time.. and then switched to bodyform night pads... and had to change them often.

    I got Boots own brand and my mum bought me 4 packs and I already had one pack. That was sufficient - I threw some out.

    I just used kotex ultra night time pads, or whatever they're called.. blue packet. Also, nick as many of the hospital ones as they let you - they're much better!!

    I went through absolutely loads of mothercare towels but was more bothered about being comfy with a tear, than having super absorbant towels.

    I always thought you shouldn't use normal sanitary towels cos the ingrediant in them that draws the moisture into the centre can sting if you've got a tear or stitches? :think:

    This thread is bringing it all back! I can remember the feeling of rawness after delivery :shock:

    I found Tesco's ones to be the best ones. Stock up on loads of packets I had my little princess on the 28th of November and I am still using them so get well stocked up. xxxxxxxxxxxx

    I used the mothercare slim ones and they were fab, the hospital ones were so think and hard they were agony on my bruised bits. I would think you would need about 5-6 a day in hospital. :puke:

    these were great. You can also cut them in haf and use them as breastpads.
