Soooooooo I had a thought after someone suggesting disposable knickers for after birth...and I was wondering about those big adult sized diapers you see in woolies and the like? Has anyone used these? They would work right? So shamed out now.....

Adult diapers are for urine/faecal material and won't work as well for post natal bleeding due to the different consistency of fluids.
You are best of using a maternity pad and then granny knickers over them to hold them in place. The high briefs help hold up your belly and provide a bit of support. They also don't irritate a cs scar if you have one.

Why would you need disposable knickers?
Get a few pairs of cheap black undies to hide any stains caused by leaking. Use maternity pads. Change them often. Do that, and I don't think you should have any issues tbh.

Haha oh the shame, I just thought they would be really good to stop leaks, with my first to I bled alot and leaked ALL THE TME! It was horrible, especially at night of when laying down

no need for disposable knickers. like sassy said dark knickers just in case and keep an eye on your pads and change often.
ive had 2 DD's and havent ruined any knickers yet

I had dark Knickers with my first two and changed all the time but if I was laying down or sleeping I would always always leak!

It may be uncomfortable but can you use 2 pads at all so you wont keep leaking? Have you tried different brands to see what works better?

Wear men's boxer briefs!!!! Best advice I ever received!!
Because it has the bit at the front for boy bits, maternity pads fit in nicely and I had zero leaks
