You put an absorbant pad under the patient. Pretty much everyone has one of these under them
Yes the bibs work great! We also use disposable chucks under them to catch mid-diaper-change pees: Medpride Disposable Underpads 17'' x 24'' (100-Count) Incontinence Pads, Bed Covers, Puppy Training | Thick, Super Absorbent Protection for Kids, Adults, Elderly | Liquid, Urine, Accidents https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B06XS446GP/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_MPZB279ZBFPJWK250JEE
NAD, just here to suggest using disposable changing pads such as these while waiting for a solution to the leak so that it's possible to get more diaper-less time to air out. I've noticed that those marketed as medical towards incontinence and such like the ones in the link are way cheaper per piece than the ones marketed for use with babies.
In case you've never used anything like these before, they have a soft and thin absorbent surface, and a thin waterproof backing below. It's easy to see when the surface is oversaturated with moisture, but since it's waterproof below it won't leak anyway.
It's not concentrated enough to be damaging. Only marble needs precautions. Use something like a medical chuck to prevent any spills. I use them for keeping messes away.
My little one does the same almost daily.
My war story:
My LO had a shit-plosion diaper that I was in the process of changing. As I was placing the new diaper under him he proceeds to shit-cano all over my hands. I’m not good with smells and started to gag as I started to figure out what to do next not a millisecond later, the little dude starts to pressure wash my poop covered hands with his pee. A direct hit and with great pressure. The hysterical laughter quickly overtook my gagging. I loved it. He made my whole week.
I too use the disposable underpads. These fit well on the changing table and are relatively cheap. I have gone so far as to double up on them. When the LO messes on one I roll it up and have the second one in place to finish the change.
I haven't tried marshmallows either, the thought makes me gag! I picked these up from Amazon and use them for wafer changes. I find them to be the perfect size to protect my whole work area and then wrap everything up to dispose of. I've not had an issue with bag changes alone because it's so quick.
I feel like there is a markup on these because they are "for baby" chuck pads/puppy pads also work really well FYI
Yes! If you add bed pads and overnight pads I will buy them.
Like maybe these:

Chux pads could work too. Just food for thought. I'm pretty sure they're less expensive. This pack of 100 is under $22 on Amazon.
I am 2½ years post-op from Dr Rachel Bluebon-Langner. After you are discharged you are given post-maternity underwear and pads as you will be leaking some blood for a number a weeks, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. After you dilate you only need to wash the dilator with warm soapy water. (Anti-bacterial soap is recommended.) The pads will take care of any leakage. Once a day, usually after your last dilation of the day, you douche with a saline solution. The hospital will give you a starter kit with the solution and douche kit, but tap water can be safely used when that runs out. (You can also mix a very very small amount of distilled white vinegar in the solution. (1 tablespoon / 2 cups ). They will also get you extra pads for your bed so you don't mess up your sheets with dilating. I suggest getting extras from Amazon. After month or so, just a towel can be used without any issues.
After each follow-up appointment, Dr BL would decrease the amount of douching needed. It went from every other day after a few weeks and eventually once a week for a while. You will be wearing regular pads after a few weeks for an additional month or two depending on how you heal. I have never had any odor issues at all and now I only douche once a month.
After 3 months occasionally I would need to wear a pad and I would just wear the ultra-thin ones. This would depend on physical activity at the gym, sexual activity, hormones (I inject), lube used and arousal.
Once you dilate once a day then period underwear or pads I would wear at night. (I prefer period underwear on nights that I dilate now which is twice a week.
Here was my dilation schedule but it might have changed slightly since then:
Dilation will seem like a chore the first month or two, but it does get a lot better. Now it is just maintenance and no big deal at all.
