  • I didn't need any while I was in the hospital because they gave me those little mesh disposable kind and they were awesome! I took like 3 pair, but only needed a pair to wear home.

  • Good question. I never thought of this, but I am glad I ran acrossed your question, because I have been wondering what I need to pack for the hospital. I would hate to have my hubby pack it for me at the last minute.

  • i brought 3 pair because we were only in there 2 days after having my daughter, but i only used one pair because the hospital provided special underwear that they recommend for after delivery, but i don't know if all hospitals do that.

  • I brought a lot too- lol. You bleed alot after baby is born and you don't know how many you'll go through while your there. Bring extra to be safe- they don't take up too much room : )

  • Are you having a planned cesarean? (Longer hospital stay = more days-- more pairs.) They give moms "netting" style undies for huge maxis, but you can wear your own over top. I think I'd plan to bring two or three pairs/day (just in case!). Can't hurt. And not your pretty favorite ones. You might even want to throw them out after, if stained.

  • If you have an episiotomy, and you don't want to wear the little net things they give you 5-6 becaus eyou bleed. If you have a c-section, idk

  • I did not use my undies because the hospital provided those mesh underwear. I loved them because they were comfortable and I did not bleed on mine.
