What brands of pads for the post-partum?

I'm going to have a c-section and I would like to use the very big ones, but I don't know the brands. Thank you

  • Always has the over nights, which are the longest of their brands. Kotex have been the thickest I've used. The hospital also gives you a pack of really thick and long ones which work great! For me, once those were gone, I was back to using the Always regulars.

  • You will not have as much bleeding if you have a c-section. From what I've heard, a normal period-like heaviness is normal after c-section.

  • I used the new infiniti pads by always.. the overnight ones. If you go the always website (could be kotex im not sure) you can compare products and they give suggestions for postpartum.
