    Default Maternity or night pads difference

    Hi all,

    I am due in September with bub number 1 and I am just wondering what the difference between maternity and night pads are? Is one longer or more absorbent than the other?

    In the brand i like, they only have maternity ones without wings so i was thinking of just getting the night ones so i can get them how I like them.

    Any info or help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

    Maternity ones are thicker and longer. Funny the ones you looked at don't have wings?! Wings are a necessity IMO.

    I just used night ones, had no issues. Wings are a necessity for me too.

    I found no difference between the night ones and maternity ones, bar the lack of wings on maternity. I use the night ones with wings for post birth.

    I think the maternity ones are thicker, it is nice to have a little extra padding down there!!!
    I found with both my bubs I only needed the maternity ones for maybe 3 days before I just went to normal thin pads. I was terrified of those surf boards! (I only use tampins during periods) but found it was fine!

    I don't think there's much difference, I accidentally left my maternity pads at the hospital and DH had to rush round to the servo near our house and they only had night pads which worked just as well.
