Green sanitary product for postpartum bleeding
After you give birth, your body sort of goes through a period, called lochia. This normal postpartum bleeding can be heavy at first, and should taper off each day.
The hospital provides heavy-duty sanitary pads, but you may consider buying an alternative while you’re in your third trimester.
Cloth sanitary pads can absorb better than disposable, and are more comfortable. And you’ll be helping the environment too. When your regular periods return, you can use cloth pads over and over again.
The brand I prefer is made by Mother of Eden. But shop around to see which brands work well for postpartum bleeding. I have pretty heavy periods, and I used to deal with the occasional leaks from disposable pads.
I love the feel of these modern cloth pads, I love saving money, and I love doing my share to help the environment.
If you’ve used cloth pads for normal postpartum bleeding, share with us how it worked for you.
