Find retailers of breast pads locally and online in the Bub Hub Australian Pregnancy & Parenting Directory.
I've got at least half a dozen Woolworths around me in the South Eastern suburbs and this brand doesn't have a home brand nursing pads at all to buy. Need to have this available in all stores.
The breast pads are good and absorbs a lot of milk.
I find the adhesive at the back not sticky enough and the breast pads do get out of place easily.
For the price, it is good and met my needs
awful & uncomfortable
I use these pads when I go to work, as they are a lot thinner than my reusable ones, so they don't show through my tops. They aren't extremely absorbent, and I find they use to fill up very quickly. Now that I've been pumping regularly on schedule, and I don't "leave anything in the tank", I don't leak very often if at all. So these pads work well for a small amount of leakage.
For the price, (VERY VERY cheap), you get what you pay for. If you're after quality and longer use (as in for more than a few hours), then I'd choose another brand...
I was given a box by a friend and i used them pre birth as i was heavily leaking colostrum. I hated them they leaked they bunched werent absorbent.
I do not recommend at all!
I use to breast feed my son and my milk supply was very high during early days. So when i use to feed my son from one breast ,other breast use to leak a lot .Even during one feed i use to change breastpads and during a day in total i was using lots of breastpads. So i was looking for a cheap option as i was usnig a lot of them. So i tried home brand nursing pads and was happy with the results.
They are individually packed - i feel it is good as sometimes when i use to take them out from the box in a hurry,i use to drop a few of them on floor but as they were individually wrapped so i use to put them back in the box again without thinking about the pads being contaminated with dirt ( if they were not wrapped ).
They soak a good amount of milk and they soak little leaks well and i was not able to feel any wetness on the pad.
They have small sticky tabs on the back to keep themin one place - i found them helpful.
They are comfortable to wear and gentle on the skin.
i didnt start using these until my milk supply was fairly well established so not sure how they would go in the early days. i initally bought them as they were the cheapest option but now buy them as i prefer them to others. i have had no problems with them being itchy or sticky. it does sort of annoy me that they are individually packaged ( what a waste of plastic) but most brands i have tired are. i stopped using the sticky bits on the back as its easier for me to reposition them after a feed if they arnt stuck to my bra but when i did i found when i peeled the paper off it would sometimes take some of the sticky stuff as well
I found these pads to be hot, itchy and sweaty. In the end I decided to use nothing at all when at home. Wouldn't recommend them, I have a whole pile still sitting in the drawer
