You will need to change your underwear regularly

You will need to change your underwear regularly. You should change it after each bowel movement, menstrual period, and when you wet or soil the underwear.

To remove your postpartum pants:

  • Hold onto the sides of the waistband with both hands and pull gently down until they slide past your butt cheeks.
  • Put one foot at a time into the leg holes and gently pull up until they’re right below your hips.

You should try to wash your underwear before you wear it for the first time

Washing your underwear before wearing it for the first time will help you save time and money in the long run. Here’s how:

  • Wash new underwear with like colors, using mild detergent and no fabric softener. Fabric softeners can leave a sticky residue on your underwear that may irritate your skin or cause stains to set in. If you choose to wash them, use hot water but no bleach or fabric softener; hot water helps remove dirt and bacteria from clothes while keeping colors bright.
  • Don’t throw your postpartum underwear into a dryer yet! They should be hung up to air dry instead of being thrown into a machine that could shrink or damage them over time, especially if they’re made of cotton (which most postpartum briefs are).

You will need to make sure that you put on the right type of clothing when you are wearing postpartum underwear

You will need to make sure that you put on the right type of clothing when you are wearing postpartum underwear. You should wear loose clothing that is comfortable and avoid wearing tight clothing until your stitches or incision has healed. Wearing loose clothing is also important as it will prevent rubbing against your stitches or incision.

Most women will choose to wear cotton or nylon panties

The most common choice among postpartum women is cotton or nylon panties. According to the professionals at Wuka, “Cotton panties are breathable and comfortable, so they’re a great choice for hot summer days or if you have a heavy flow.” They also tend to be less expensive than nylon panties, which can help with your budget as well.

If you have sensitive skin or are prone to yeast infections, then it may be better to wear nylon panties instead. Nylon has an antibacterial property that prevents bacteria from growing in the fabric of your underwear, which could cause an infection before it’s even noticeable (and before you know it).

As you can see, there are many ways to use postpartum underwear. You should always wear one when you are recovering from your delivery and caring for your baby. If your doctor recommends it, then make sure that you stock up on enough pairs for the next few days at least.
