    Need to do my hospital bag and need maternity pads. Can you get specific ones for this? Or do I just get super absorbent plusplusplus or something? Had a look in asda and nothing was marked maternity. I haven't bought pads since I was about 15 so haven't a clue!

    Thanks

    You get specific maternity pads! I got mine from mothercare think you get about 48 for about £5, from what iv heard you should only use mat ones as they have no chemicals in (like always would to help absorb) as they could cause infection xx

    they are not usually with the sanitary towels for periods in the supermarkets - they are usually with baby stuff, like where bottles and nappy cream and stuff are! that's where breast pads, and all that maternity stuff is too!

    I only used maternity towels for the first few days as the padding helps when sitting down etc :) but after that moved on to the large sized thin towels like always with wings etc :)

    As others have said they are with the baby stuff, usually with the likes of breast pads etc. Tesco had them on 3 for 2. Not sure if they still are. Only a quid a pack of 10 though.

    I got the Kotex pads nighttime things (the black ones?) and they were a pound but they were so good! Like little mattresses for my vag. The bleeding in the first few days is absolutely horrific. I'd feed my baby and because my uterus contracted there was just blood dripping everywhere! Not nice

    I'm not used to heavy periods so not looking forward to it! Bf helps as,it contracts your uterus.
    Don't panic, better to expect it than be freaked out when you didn't expect it! Xx
