  • I loved the mesh underwear that I wore in the hospital. They were seriously comfortable.

  • Agreed with anon, I had the same thought with my second birth, and depends are definitely designed to handle liquids only not more viscous fluids like lochia. Messy and gross. Stick with the thick menstrual pads.

  • I was watching "The Tyra Show" .. And there's a girl who was talking about how she wears depends during her period when she sleeps or goes on long road trips.

  • I preferred the baby's diapers ;) More absorbent than a pad, way more coverage, and definitely more comfortable than a pad! I wore my own granny panties that were a couple sizes too big too, not the mesh.
