girls, never thought it would come to this, where I am spending some much time agonising over this purchase ! But I am wondering which are the best mat sanitary towels to get.
I know someone had mentined Dr. Whites to me, but when I saw them in the chemist I got a bit of a shock... they are looped!
So I ended up going to boots and buying their brand... now I am wondering if they are any good...
... please forgive my pregnancy hormones for forcing me to give this matter so much thought!!
The midwives at our ante natal class recommended the big green ones you see in the chemists. I bought two packs, they're v nappy like, am dreading the thought of wearing them! Have granny like knicks to go with them - o bliss!
Yeah the midwives recommend those ones that are green and they are good because nothing can escape!!!!
However after my DS was born, I found the mothercare ones the best as I had stitches and they added a bit of padding when sitting down!!! To the berst of my knowledge teh boots ones are similar to these.
I didn't like the green ones. Had to use them in the hospital cos who knew that the waters would only trickle out over a couple of hours (sorry TMI). I use the mothercare ones and I second that they gave me great support. I had stitches so used them for about two weeks after. (again sorry TMI)
i found the green ones the best of all but a few days later when i came home i switched to my always ultra allnights. i had bought the tesco ones but was using 3 at a time.
my friend told me to get the boots ones as they are what she found the best
The big green ones are by far the best!! You won't believe the amount of bleeding you will do so you need something VERY absorbent. I used lots of these and also for a few weeks after coming home.
Sprinkle them with distilled witch hazel to help healing for the few days after the birth too = found this fantastic and its my top tip for all my friends having babies!
Yeah I found the big green ones great for the heavy bleeding. I used the mothercare ones then and found them really comfy. Had a lot of stitches
The green ones are by far the best they can be got in chemists shops. After giving birth the midwife got me to use two of them.
I had bought 5-6 packs of the boots ones and they didnt go to waste - what i did is use the green ones then down to the boots ones then to always towels and then down to panty liners .
Would recommended to bought about 4 packs of the green ones to start off with. The secret is to shower "the area" a couple of times a day and to change the pad on a regular basic.
Hope this helps[/b]
Go with the big green one's. Like mrsmrs, I used 2 pads in the hosp, you will need it with the amount of bleeding.
I am going to get a good few packs. I did use the boots mat pads as I had a show 1/2 days before hand and I was glad I had these. As things got heavier in the hosp tho, they gave me the green one's.
