Ok so this is the second time this week that I have seen a thread about this on different forums. Before this week I had never heard of using depends. Where has this been for the last 3 pregnancies?!?!?!?!
I am definatly going to get some. I spill so easily, and I hate that pads twist and shift. I didn't even think about depends.
Ok yesterday while at walmart I looked into the depends more. I ended up buying the walmart brand of adult diapers (as embarrassing as it was...hehe).
I paid 9 or 10 bucks for a 30 pack. I do not plan on using them all but I have several other friends that are pregnant and some are doing homebirths, so I figured I would share since buying a pack half that size was the same price! *scratches head*
I got the belted underwear things. It says one size fits all.....but I am a little leary of that statement.
Anyone have any experience with "Assurrance" brand and/or belted adult diapers? What about one size fits all?
I just want to make sure that I have bought the thing that will work best for me. If not, I can always take them back and get the right ones (providing they are not opened). I only plan on using a few of them....maybe a couple a day for the first 2-3 days. I bleed more than a regular or extra strength pad can hold (atleast for the first few days). The thought of people actually being able to use normal pads for the first day or so without having to change them a million times in one day..is a baffling thought to me. I have used the gigantic hospital pads and I still have soaked them pretty good and have to change them more than I like to. Even with the huge pads, I would always have a chuck under me while sitting/laying for the first few days. And in many instances, I would still notice leaking.
So I hope these depend "want a be things" work well too. They were just a little cheaper than actual depends brand.....but I have found that many times off brands are just as good and sometimes even better than the higher priced name brands.
