For those ladies who use cups - both my sister and I want to give it a go. We both used cloth naps, so feel a bit hypocritical about using disposables ourselves. My sister hadn't heard of them before, but I first heard about cups when I was in Canada a few years ago and a friend of mine was using a Keeper.
I have a six month old bub and my sis has 3 kids, all natural deliveries. Her youngest is 8 now, but I'm just wondering how I'll go with a cup having only recently had a baby.
AF has been back for two cycles and I'm hating it now, it never bothered me before. It seems heavier (probably just the fact its been gone a year and I'm outta touch!), but I also have the feeling that tampons are slipping, especially close to time they need changing (sorry if TMI). I know this will improve with time/Kegels, but I am just finding tampons so scratchy and uncomfortable now. I'm so CONSCIOUS of them and using pads overnight is awful - I have really interrupted sleep because I'm getting up for bub, so because I'm getting up, its heavier than it used to be at night when I just slept for 8 hrs.
How soon after a baby have you been able to use a cup?
I've read some testimonials on a few sites - how true are they really?
I know there is a size for women who've had babies, but is there anything else I should know?
