Anyway, on to my issues. I've just gotten my first period postpartum (not quite 8 weeks, which is a shame, really. I'm breast feeding and was hoping for something like the 7 month reprieve I got with my first) and things are mostly the same. The only differences are: 1. The rim is hurting me a bit at removal! I didn't notice this at all last time around, and I'm guessing it's because it's been 4 months since anything solid has been in or out of my vagina. Just general postpartum sensitivity. It did get me thinking about issue 2. I haven't really got time to squat over the toilet pushing and reaching for 5 minutes to get the thing out these days. My baby does not like being put down at the best of times, and the stress of her whinge-ing and crying is not super conducive to relaxing. So, now I'm thinking new cup. What I need is more length and possibly a softer or less obtrusive rim. I'm thinking NaturalMamma or possibly an XL Meluna? I really like the softness of the body of the femmecup, and am a bit afraid to go too firm.
Just thought I'd check in here to see if there's anything else I should be considering or something glaringly wrong about my thought process, here. Everyone always seems so knowledgeable and helpful.
