Okay, I'm a tampon user. so I need to buy pads for after the birth.

I'll use the hosp ones at first, and then switch, so what ones so I get? (yes this is #3 but I forget!)

Umm... I used the hospital ones and then just went and got the longest ones I could find. By the time I got through the hospital ones, regular long pads worked fine.

I couldn't use tampons anymore after Dalton was born. I also discovered that disposable pads give me major skin irritation issues in the vajayjay zone, so I started using cloth pads. I dunno what I will do this time, but thank you for reminding me to ask if the birth center gives us pads!

That's something I have not thought of yet! I guess I'll probably just get whatever they have for the heaviest flow. Probably with wings, I'm always afraid pads will fall out or shift and I'll mess up my skivvies

The pads that the hospital gave me did NOT have wings, but they were so giant it didn't matter. But for sure, when buying from a store, wings are a necessity!

I am thinking maybe the disposable diaper is the way to go instead! (Kidding but only sorta)

I havent even thought about it. I have never worn a pad in my life. I didnt even think about not being able to use one for awhile post delivery.

I haven't been able to wear tampons at all since I had Dalton, but that's probably just me being weird more than anything!
