PP Bleeding...
 
So, I know this is an awesome subject, but what's everyone's plans to handle the pp bleeding??

Last time I just wore whatever the hossy gave me, but I will be on my own this go around.

Don't really want to do mama cloth, probably mostly because I wouldn't want to plunk down the cost. It would also have to have some sort of stay-dry top. I have some minky topped pads that I hate wearing because I feel gross and "wet."

Thoughts? What should I buy? What do you all normally do/prefer?

I dont wanna do mama cloth for the same reason. Im just gonna buy over night heavy pads. Its usually not too heavy after about 6 or so days.

Sorry for due date crashing, just saw this in current posts. I read on here once that a mama used depends for PP. I thought it was genius! At least better than the mesh panties and huge pads I got from the hospital.

I use flats or prefolds. I can not handle regular pads bc I get sore from them or dry. So I just use that.

I used the super thick scary overnight disposable pads....

Not sure what the mesh panty thing is... explain this, please. I don't want to ruin good undies obviously. Do I buy some cheap ones I don't mind getting ruined. TMI, but things were so MESSY last time. Pads slipped out, leaked, the bed was gross. I don't want that mess again.

I used depends for the first couple of days after DD2 was born...they weren't very comfy but they worked well and I plan on using the rest of the package this time. I then used premie prefolds around the house and for nights, and some mama cloth once the bleeding lightened.

Mesh panties are the ones they give out at hospitals, and you can buy them online. I don't think they are that great. Depends work great.

I also slept on a dark towel and bought cheapie undies.
