Poise Pads vs Regular Pads

I'm wondering about this for after the delivery. I had to use 2 long pads after DD. It was uncomfortable. So I'm thinking those poise pads come in huge sizes so maybe that would be better?? Anyone have any advice on this????

I know a lot of ladies actually use the Depends adult diapers because they provide more coverage and are more comfy. I'd purchased some for after DD was born but never needed to use them since I didn't bleed too much after the first 2 days at the hospital.

I think Depends would be much more comfortable so I say get those!

I used these... and actually I still use them overnight when my period is super heavy. They have an extra wide "bottom" for more coverage.

I've never seen these! Maybe it's a US thing...I'll check them out next time I'm over shopping!

If I have another kiddo, I will definitely be using some postpartem mama cloth. I recently switched to cloth pads a month ago and I don't know why on earth I never considered it before. They are so soft and comfy. You can even wash them with your regular laundry as long as you don't use fabric softener for that load.

Here is an example: http://www.etsy.com/listing/68953691/pink-plus-size-overnight-15-inch?ref=sr_gallery_7&ga_search_query=overnight+cloth+pad+&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade

I used Depends and they were a godsend.

I do use Momma cloth now but would still use Depends again.
