    This is great. So much helpful information here! I wanted to add, a few days after the birth of one of my kids, I had what I thought was a UTI. Burning while urinating, itching, etc. I happened to be talking to the maternity ward nurse and asked her about it. She asked what brand of pads I was using. (Always) She told me to switch to something without the plastic “dri weave” style top layer and see if it helped. (Not easy to find but they’re out there.) Sure enough, 2 days later it had cleared up completely.

      Thanks for sharing this, Risa. This is exactly the kinds of helpful tips I love hearing from experienced moms! So glad it was a simple fix and yes, natural, chemical-free pads are really important to proper postpartum healing.
