Hi Ladies,<br><br>
I hope you can help me out! I am already dreading wearing pads for post partum bleeding. I absolutely HATE/ABHOR/DETEST the pads that you can purchase at the grocery store. I remember having to wear them for six weeks after my last pregnancy and they were so hot and plasticy and uncomfortable. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"> *sigh* I was wondering what you mamas use and if you have any good recommendations. I have seen the luna pads and other products but do they work well? Would you use them post partum? I showed them to dh and he freaked out about washing them in the machine. I told him he could have an opinion when he started to do any of the laundry. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I use cloth pads..<br><br>
I have a few different ones but, my fav are hemp fleece ones.<br><br>
I would recommend to get the LONGEST ones you can for PP esp for the first few weeks. I found if I used short day pads I would leak. But, if I used night time/long ones I did not leak.<br><br>
HTH,<br>

I used old, soft prefold diapers. Just folded them into thirds and layed them in my undies. I also made myself some fleece pads. I bought half a yard of dark green fleece, cut and folded, then hand stiched the sides. Very soft. They stayed put quite nicely too. I made some fleece liners for Kai too so the meconium wouldn't stain his new cute fitted cloth diapers.<br><br>
I recently bought some cloth Glad Rags but I haven't had a chance to use them yet. I've heard good things though.<br><br>
Oh, and washing them is a breeze. I just put them in the lined diaper pail and washed all together. Cold wash, then hot. Actually the first week my husband did all the washing. He thought he'd be grossed out but he said it really wasn't a big deal.
