I am due with #3 in Jan, but I can't remember how long I used ice packs down there after birth. Both times before I have used the "frozen maxi pad shaped to a bowl" routine. This time I was considering these, but they are more pricey.
If they aren't used for very many days then it might be nice to have them and worth it because they wouldn't start leaking water everywhere and such. But it could start to add up if it's a lot of days or if you have to change them really often.
So, does anyone remember? How many days with ice?
