Best Undies For Newborn Mothers
Always Discreet Incontinence & Postpartum Disposable Underwear
Choose an incontinence panty from your local drugstore or online for inexpensive, absorbent, and disposable underwear. FSA and HSA reimbursements are frequently available for these products.
Hanes Premium Body Toner Smoothing Briefs
These classic briefs are constructed of nylon and spandex and feature moderate belly binding to support your abs and improve your posture when you need it the most. These underpants are made of super-stretchy (and quick-drying) nylon spandex, which won’t feel cold and damp like cotton can while you’re leaking fluids, plus they’re tagless for itch-free underwear.
UpSpring C-Panty C Section Panty High Waist
With the help of a silicone panel that lies across your c-section scar and resists irritating it (and if you end up having a c-section, you’ll quickly learn how irritating anything can be when it touches your healing incision), this underwear supports your weakened abdominal muscles and speeds up your recovery. Choose between black and nude hues in sizes small to 2XL.
Frida Mom Disposable Postpartum Underwear
This is a more advanced version of the hospital’s disposable underwear. It’s softer, has a cotton-like feel, and wicks away moisture. It’s also made to hold pads in place. The Frida Mom Postpartum Recovery Essentials Kit, which includes this underwear as well as ice maxi pads, cooling pad liners, and healing foam, is recommended if you want to cover all your bases.
Fruit of the Loom Seamless Low-Rise Briefs
These comfortable briefs from a recognized brand are recommended by moms who have had c-sections. They stretch, stay in place, and don’t have any bothersome tags or seams to chafe fragile postpartum skin.
