Minishower vs peri bottle

I have a diaper minishower that hooks into the cold water from the toilet tank. Has anyone used this ppd instead of the peri bottle? Will I still want a peri bottle or should I just use the minishower?

Personally I loved having a WARM peri bottle. I don't think I could do a COLD minishower.

I used warm, warm water in a peri bottle ... can't imagine having used cold water. I really found comfort using the warm peri bottle so that's what I would suggest!

Re: Minishower vs peri bottle

That's so funny! It never even occurred to me to use warm water after my last birth. I guess I thought the cold was supposed to be good for swelling,etc, so I always used it really cold. I do remember it being a shock but then feeling good after. Maybe I'll try the warm peri bottle this time around!

ok.. dumb question... I've never given birth, so what's the deal with a peri bottle? what does it look like and why do you need it?
