planning to get those adhesive ones as i understand that hospitals usually provide those string type.. anyone used mothercare pads before? or any other brands to recommend which is gentle on e wound? i actually bought e normal whisper overnight one but worried that it might not be gentle.. TIA!
I use Kotex Maternity pad. Its cheaper to buy in Malaysia.
i used pureen maternity pads. Longer than Kotex thus prevent the messiness
Recently delivered in Eastshore, they used Kotex string type for the 1st day. After finish that packet, i used the one i brought - Pureen adhesive type, long and soft which is good for me cause i had a episiotomy.
only used the kotex maternity pads hospital provided for 2days and use normal nite sanitary pads..
find maternity pads a hassle cos no wings
i saw e pureen one too but scared too long might feel uncomfortable..
I used my normal overnight pads as maternity pads. Normal pads are cheaper and more easily available so I can just get the hubs to grab it from anywhere when I run out of it. If I bought too much of it, I can still use it when my period returns so there's minimal wastage.
I used normal heavy flow overnight adhesive-backed pads. But as a precaution, I laid blue plastic sheets (like what they use in hospital) on my bed. Can get from Guardian pharmacy.
im using poise heavy flow. the one hospital gave with string, kotex, its too thick. Makes me feel really uncomfortable..
I just delivered beginning of Feb at KK. They provide Kotex maternity pads. I also bought a big pack of pads from mothercare. Both are quite thick, but I didn't mind, cos they act as 'cushions' when I sit down so the perineal stitches dont't hurt.
althought the hospital letter said no need to bring pad but i still pack one big pack. cos i see hospital gg to give kotex maternity pad. no wings one. sure will leak out esp i always have heavy menses one.
I delivered in KL and for the first few days, my obgyn recommended me this amazing pad:
- it has a tubing inside, fold a new pad into 2 to break the tubing, shake the pad
The compound in the pad produces an icy-cold effect, luxurious on my stitches!!!
I think these pads are available in Gleneagles. Not sure if other hospitals stock them.
After the pads were finished and my wounds were fine , I used ultra-thin Whisper pads with wings, my regular pads.
For my next baby, I am going to try cloth pads. Lunapads Pantiliners |
what brand is it?
I didnt buy maternity pads. I just use the normal overnight/heavy flow pads.
Sitting down is quite painful if you have stitches so I bought a swimming trunk to sit on.
I used those provided by the hospital and sofy overnight pad thereafter.
