Maternity pads or adult diapers pp?

I used adult diapers! Nvr regretted at all.. nt even once leakage.. when the lochia has lessen i chged to normal pads
A lot mummies recommend the Kotex overnight panties. You can buy a few and try it ^^
There’s one under Kotex . It’s a pants kind. It’s really highly recommended!
Hi Fionn! I used kotex overnight panties. I love it. It was comfy and no leakage at all.
Yup i used this too. Abit costly, but so convenient!
Maternity pads initially, sanitary pads are sufficient thereafter
