What were your favorite pads after you gave birth? How long did you need super absorbant pads?

I had bought a bunch of Always supersized ones because that's my regular brand, but my midwives said that that brand seems to delay healing (too plasticky), so I bought what they suggested, which was Kotex. Sorry, I don't remember how long I needed the enormous ones, I think it was about a week. I bled for 4 weeks, but it wasn't really gushing after the first few days.

It depends a little-like every woman and pregnancy, its a bit different. I would get some overnight pads, and some maxi ultra thins, all with wings. and some pantiliners. You could need them for a week or two, you could only need them a few days.
