  • If it's your first child probably 2 or 3. The hospital will send you home with one big pack.

  • I guess I lost more than I thought at birth. I only needed one.

  • I'd buy 2 to start and keep the receipts. You won't have any idea how long it might last til you're there.

    I bled 6 weeks with my first, and less than 24 hours with my second.

  • I guess it depends on the person and the delivery. I didn't bleed that much because I had a C-section. I had one big bleeding incident at the end of the first week that almost sent me on a middle-of-the-night trip to the emergency room, but then It stopped and the bleeding was pretty much over with.
