There is no disbuting there are just some things nursing mothers can’t do without
moosive bar of chocolate , foot rub from a hunk and good breastpads are on of these things. Now i myself am pretty late to the lets get good breast pad party, with both my girls i used disposable ones which seemed to have a life of their own and would wander around under my clothes (sometimes over, being in Tesco express with one stuck to the outside of my top my unusual for me) so i never found the golden brand. But i’ve heard through the grapevine there are some good ones out there. So lets start with the reusable ones:
Apparently they are the softest, they’re leak proof and they don’t show. I have no idea if they actually are (if anyone has used these please let me know and i can add to site ) but from a totally superficial basis they look cute (they are shaped like hearts).
To quote from their website ”
Say goodbye to uncomfortable, unreliable and unattractive nursing bras and pads!”
What i’ve found good is to read some of the reviews on Amazon for these as it’s reviews from women who have used them . You can find some of the reviews HERE.
Now time for the disposable breastfeeding pads:
Now Lansinoh is a brand i personally know and love, their cream was a total life saver when i first started breastfeeding and sorts out your sore boobies and i cannot recommend it highly enough. So what are their breast pads like?
Again i have used Amazon to help me out here , so some of the customer reviews are available here
60 breastpads for £3.99 they seem a real bargain.
There are lots more disposable breastpads, lots of supermarkets dot heir won range and there are varying reviews depending upon brand. Lots of ladies had issues with leakage and like myself wander pads, so maybe it’s trial and error to find the right one for you?
Again pro’s and cons for disposable Vs washable ones – environmental issues washable ones come out top but you’ve got to remember to wash them (some people this is no biggy). Disposable ones cheaper to initially buy but how many are you going to need over the course of your breastfeeding journey? Again are they really cheaper in the long run?
It’s a close one to call, which breastpads did you find the best?
