I had a bag of Depends, but after my supply of pads from the hospital ran out, I ended up just using Poise pads for the first two weeks of my pp bleeding and then regular maxi pads for the last five weeks. I had maternity undies anyway from my third tri and, especially fresh off a c-section, putting a pad in them and putting them on was much easier and made me feel more sanitary than the Depends did.
ETA: The hospital usually gives you mesh panties to wear. Try them and if you like them, ask for more. I found them to be wonderfully comfortable, easy to pull up and down, especially when you have.to.go.right.now.omg.I.have.no.bladder.control, and they're disposable.
