    Ok, Might sound a bit dim here but......

    I didn't buy maternity towels I bought sanitry towels (but the thicker ones) and some normal & normal Plus...........Will I be ok??

    Is there really a diff between Maternity & thick S.towels??:blush:

    i was also told to get the thickest pads going as they are really soft and provide a little cushion to your bits when there sore

    I wouldn't know ... I'd imagine theres no diff but maybe a reason why they are called MAT pads lol I was told I needed both not just the thin ones ... but advice may vary between hospitals as we all know so well :lol: You have time to pop out anyway or your OH for you?

    id recomend the thickest ones you can get, i will be getting mat ones to start off with for the first few days, my blood loss after Coby was very heavy, normal san pads didnt hold it.

    After about 2 or 3 days it should ease off a bit then you can wear san pads :)

    Well, I checked my s.towels lastnight and they have a top sheet with little teeny holes in.....OH thought I was going mental "inspecting" them!

    I'm going to nip to boots in a bit and buy some mat towels.....was thinking if I need stiches I wouldn't like the top sheet rubbing me....eeek!!

    Would rather be safe and have them and I'll defo use them anyway so off I go to buy some!!

    Most hospitals like you to use heres as sometimes if you loss is alot they weight the towels to see how much your losing ....

    thick towels are great for the first couple of days depending on your loss BUT like i say most hospitals like you to use there's.
