As everyone else has said - I got 3 packs but 2 would have been enough, switched to libra good nights after that, thin but nice and long. Still bleeding 4 weeks later. I got black granny knickers from target. 5 in a pack for $10 and got them a few sizes bigger to ensure they covered c section cut. I also took a box of nursing pads to hospital but since my milk didn't come in til after I was home I really didn't need them.
good luck !
