Hello Mommies! I haven't gotten to our little one's birth story yet but just had to suggest the following for those of you preparing for delivery of your sweet babies. Make sure the sanitary pads you have for postpartum DO NOY HAVE WINGS in case you have episiotomy or tear stitches. You don't want the wing to unstick and flip up and stick to you! Take my word on that. Also make sure they are long ones... I found myself leaking out over the front of the regular pads. I had a hard time finding the long wingless at some stores and ended up with long bladder control pads. When you leave the hospital make sure to ask for extra pads that have the built in ice packs. I was more sore in the lady bits after i was home as the swelling went down and the stitches started to pull a bit. The cooling pads feel so good! When you get home don't feel bad about turning visitors away for the first week. i finally feel up for company this week. When your breasts leak like faucets and bras and breast pads make your hair stand up all you want to wear is a loose t shirt and hold burp clothes on the to catch the overflow. This DOES get better after the first week. Above all Snuggle Snuggle and Snuggle you newborns Best wishes to all of you and thanks so much for helping me through this exciting time!
