DDCC- I used those super thick ones with the mesh panties that they gave me at the birth center with my first for about 2 days and then switched over to Always with wings super absorbent for a few days, then downgraded to a less absorbent style until I was ready for liners.
With my second I used one package of the Always super absorbent with wings and then switched over to cloth pads. Soooooooo much nicer!!! I highly recommend them! They are more breathable, feel better on, and I don't feel so wasteful. They are easy to clean and I have enough to get through two days before needing to wash. Once AF returns I go back to the Diva Cup and use cloth liners overnight for any leaks.
