Boots Disposable Breast Pads
Advantages: keeps your clothing dry, 99% of time
Disadvantages: pricey. Mustn't forget to change them regularly
I have already started to stock up on these breast pads ready for new arrival who I hope will be totally breastfed.
These come in a box which contains two plastic packs of 40 pads in each.
After the experience of sending my partner out to get maternity pads and breast pads after I had my son and he came home empty handed I will make sure not to run out this time. I think it may have been embarrassing for him to have to ask in the store as he couldn't find them...
Now whether you breastfeed or not I believe you will still need some of these pads as even if you don't plan to breast feed the milk will still arrive after a few days of having baby then dry up if not used. The first few days the baby feeds on a substance called colostrum.
I didn't wear the pads to start with and thought I had brought them needlessly but oh boy when the milkman arrived as I called it I certainly got through a lot of the pads.
Nothing worse then your dear baby sleeping but your breasts are leaking milk as they are overfull.
The pads are disposable and made from a light material similar to that sanitry towel products are made from. Like cotton wool which is covered in fine material. They are round in shape and about the size of a pringles lid so they fit perfect onto the nipple area whilst in your bra. They are soft but it is important they are comfortable so they don't rub on your skin too much.
I found these were fine to use even though there were occasions when I realised I was leaking through to my clothing as the pad had become to soaked. It is still important to change them regularly as breast milk still starts to smell after a bit. These are very light weight so not hard to carry spares in my bag.
You can buy these in Boots for £3.99. There are 80 in a pack. Bare in mind you need to use two at a time they soon get used up.
My reason for the 4star rating is just that they are pricey for something that is actually essential. I know you can get washable ones but with all the washing there is already and when a new baby arrives too, making sure breast pads would be washed and ready to wear is an extra hassle and in the long run would cost just as much.
