Do you recommend using Depends rather than OB pads?
Use whatever you want. :)
I ordered most of my supplies from http://www.inhishands.com
I've got a few diaper looking things that seriously look like chux pads with fasteners for after the birth - maybe those are kind of like depends?
I also got a few extra long OB (overnight) pads for just after that and then I'm switching to my long cloth pads.
I used depends for the first day or two -- not only for lochia, but I had next to zero bladder control in the first 24 hours or so. If I stood up or coughed or whatever on the way to the bathroom, yeah, I pretty much peed myself After around the first day, that got a lot better but I ♥ Depends for that first day or two.
