    I always wear two pads but that not even enough. Last time I had to get change my clothes and sheets three times on that first night.

    As for the disposable knicker I have never tried them. Sorry.

    I am really no help at all. Just wanted to say your not alone with the leaking.

    Sometimes when I was younger and had heavier periods I used to wear 2 pads (not right on top of each other, one a little more to the front and one a little more to the back if that makes sense) plus 2 pairs of undies.

    I used mens briefs last time, they sit a little higher so they don't irritate a ceaser scar and they are roomier, I'm thinking about trying out mens boxer briefs next time though after reading one of the previous posts.

    I agree that those big disposable pants are meant for urine and faeces but they will still absorb some of the bleeding. If you are worried about leaking you could use the disposable pants and put one or two maternity pad inside. That way if you have a huge loss you wont have to change clothes and sheets.

    I went best and less and brought 20 pairs of their $1 crappy undies and used maternity pads and overnight ones. I also laid a surgical sheet (one side plastic and the other side absorbent) down every night so as to get any over night leaks.

    I third the mens boxer briefs! Lol. The pouchy bit at the front is excellent for the maternity pad & oh so comfy

    I used teena pads with DS, they are an incontinent pad so much bigger than a maternity pad but still shapes and much more absorbent. They also gave extra padding which was great when sitting (for a natural birth, ouch!). I used them for the first week or so, and then went onto maternity pads when things started to ease off. They were recommended by the midwife.

    I leaked last pregnancy too until I changed to the maternity pads with wings. It saved my undies getting stained! But I also like to men's boxer brief idea. Will try that this time around.

    I must confess to stealing a few of the disposable Kylie pads from the hospital to sleep on at night, saved changing sheets and extra washing!
