So I've been thinking about what to do post-baby for menstrual products. I have some mama pads but not that many, definitely not enough for the postpartum period. I like them. I'd like to buy more, but OMG are they expensive, even the cheap ones! I know they're worth it in the long run, but I just hate to put out the money if there are alternatives.
I have a friend who used premium prefolds (cloth diapers, in case you're not familiar with them) as postpartum pads just folded over her underwear, and I do have a bunch of those, but holy freaking crap would those be bulky! I don't even think I'd be able to get pants on over those things. LMAO! I read in Cunt about pinning washcloths to your underwear, which would be less bulky, but the idea of having safety pins in my underwear scares the hell out of me. And I've also heard of just folding washcloths on, but that would suck pretty badly if they slipped, eh?
Maybe I should just suck it up and buy some more. Maybe there are super cheap ones out there that I don't know about?
What do you guys do?
