having a good tp was suggested on CT's castor oil thread...and i decided this topic was so important it needed its own thread.<br><br>
already know my vote - cottonelle aloe & e!!!!<br><br>
we normally buy scotts or the stuff from the co-op...but at the end of pregnancy and post-partum, i MUST have my cottonelle. i know another mom who couldn't give it up after using it post-partum! hee hee.<br><br>

I couldn't have lived without a water bottle that I kept filled with warm water to squirt on myself while peeing. Helped get the worst of the mess off, too. I also liked the "personal cleansing cloths" - the unscented kind. Next time, I'll probably use cloth diaper wipes for drying off.

I used the peri bottle at every potty use and then made sure I was dry. That's one of the keys to healing, keeping the area dry. Since I was at home when I used the restroom, many times I would use a hair dryer to dry AND heat the area. The heat helps bring blood to the area which speeds healing as well.

Charmin.....I think they make an extra extra soft. I switched when I was pp. I even used a numbing spray for a day or two I was so sore from pushing for 8hours! Yes, 8 hours!

I second the vote for cottonelle with aloe and e!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I started using this stuff and couldn't believe it was tp. If you haven't tried it you should give it a whirl, it feels like silk!! I hoard it and keep it from my kiddies!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

You just cant but not to ya know<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I also use the Cits bath they gave me with dd#2 it was the best. if you dont knwo what it is It is this thing that has a tube that hooks onto the water facet you sit the other on the tolit and you sit there and it sprays warm water on you there. IT IS WONDERFUL and very relaxing after you just have a baby.

I bought a Mini Shower for my dd's dipes but I'm looking forward to using it for a postpartum bidet too!<br><br>
Here's a cheaper version called Mrs. Bidet. lol! If I need one for our other bathroom I'll probably buy this instead.<br><br><a href="http://shop.store.yahoo.com/mrsbidet/" target="_blank">http://shop.store.yahoo.com/mrsbidet/</a><br><br>
