Sorry, Stupid Question!!!

I'm feeling really stupid here but I've started my first period post birth and finishing breastfeeding (and typically the day before I have to go back to work)! I'm getting differing advice as to whether I can use tampax or not. Some people are saying I should wait 3 months before using them whereas others are saying it's fine to use them. What do you all think?

hi pancake,i used sanitary towels as i believe everything should come out and tampax not always do that,just for the first weeks at least!

It's fine to use them for periods, just not for the post birth bleeding.

Tampons are worse for harbouring any infections, but as long as there were no complications post partum, you should be OK. I didn't actually feel conformtable using tampons for a little while after - about 3 or 4 months -for the same reason as whymummy, I suppose.
