The best 6 disposable breast pads

top 6 breast padsRecently my father-in-law inadvertently used one of my breast pads as a coaster. My fault really … I shouldn’t have left it on the armrest of the lounge chair.


This won’t happen again as I’ve since bought a new lounge with a chaise – no more nasty armrest to embarrass me in front of the in-laws.

Anyway he gave the aforementioned breast pad full marks for absorbency.

But here’s how you rated them – the six best disposable breasts pads from the Bub Hub product reviews section.

1. Hydrogel Breast Discs – Rite Aid

 “I had a box of these on my dresser and another in the fridge and they were awesome.  The relief they gave immediately (especially the cold ones) was amazing and they helped heal my nipples so much faster than with just cream.” – Catkin

2. Disposable Breast Pads – Coles

 “4 weeks in, I discovered Coles Nursing pads in one of my gift packs and they are brilliant. I haven’t had the discomfort of a soaked chest since.” – melbagirl

3. Premium Disposable – Mamaway

“I would absolutely use these again and I would recommend them to friends having babies.  If only I’d found them before ruining so many nice shirts.” – elleandsam

4. Ultra Slim – Pigeon

“These are my absolute favourite breast pad. They are thin and not noticable through clothes. They never leak, even if you have been stuck without a fresh one. The inside becomes gel (so doesn’t fall apart like some others) and they are individually wrapped.” –Rosie

 “These are great breast pads & super absorbent.  Nice & slim so not noticeable through clothing.  Have never had a leakage with these.” – Aries7

5. Nursing Pads – Johnson & Johnson

“I used them with all 3 kids and would recommend to anyone (and put them in my “top baby products”) basket that I make up for friends and family with their first bubs.” – kaz2323

“Out of all the breast pads that I have tried I would have to say that these have been my fav. They were comfortable and seemed to soak up all excess milk with no leakage whatsoever.” – karisha

6. Nursing Pads – Rite Aid

“I have tried nearly every brand of breast pads and found these to be the most effective, comfortable, reliable and best value for money.” – Kyash

  1. I’ve tried a few of the disposable ones and in honesty I actually prefer the washable ones as they seemed to stay ‘in place’ a bit better.
