    I needed about 3 or 4 packs of pads in hospital as my hospital didn't supply any. Get lots of grannies undies (6?) to save having to wash too frequently.

    Gosh I don't remember, but I do know as soon as I could (once my bleeding) became light enough I switched to regular pads-so much more comfy.

    Don't know if anyone else did but when I was changing pads I put in 2 at once (midwife suggestion) so that when I changed if underneath one was clean I only had to get rid of one but if both were dirty I'd change both (and apply 2 new ones).

    Also bought the cheap granny undies that could be thrown away if needed

    Think everyone is different I used around 2 packs it was good for the extra padding. Once I got home (was in hospital for a week) I switched to normal thin ones. I bled for about 2.5 weeks but after 1 week it was on and off. I expected it to be much worse!
