Do you have a recipe or directions for the above? THat does sound heavenly. I don't think I did anything last time to speed healing but it appeals to me this time around.

I'm a faithful keeper fan- but wont go there PP.
I am doing disposable pads for these reasons 1. I don't have $$$ to buy a bunch of cloth and 2. I'm taking sitz bath herbs, brewing it all and dipping the pad in it and freezing it for PP.

Just the thought of using a keeper/diva right after birth makes me shiver. I only had a few minor abrasions down there, nothing that required stitches, but I couldn't even get myself to wipe after using the toilet for at least a week.

: I use a peribottle to rinse and then blot lightly with TP for weeks after birth. My kids have big heads.

Totally cool to do whatever works for you, but you can also do this with wash clothes and such for the same money as disposables if you would rather use cloth. I bought some 4 for $1 wash clothes after my friend said she just used those for PP. I have a few of these (and made some zero $ scrap pads at home).

with my previous pregnancies I've also made the ice packs. i'll take the pp disposable pads and mix up some witch hazel, cypress oil and lavendar oil and pour it on the pads and stick them in the freezer. really makes everything feel sooooo good *and* helps the swelling go down a lot faster!

the cypress is good for 'roids, too.

I highly recommend a trim down in those parts. It keeps things tidy.
