I never wear pads this thick due to feeling like I’m wearing a diaper. When I did wear them years ago no matter what I still always had a leak due to the size of the pad or my flow. I needed to purchase pads to have when I returned home from the hospital after giving birth. These became my favorites real fast. They are long enough to cover everything, front to back. I’m the wings kept the pad in place and the back expansion made leaks impossible. I was able to sleep, care for my baby, and entertain company without worrying. These were also the perfect size when you need to do some extra steps to help the healing process. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who experiences leaks with their current overnight pad and anyone heading home after giving birth.
