Events coming up ...
I was lucky enough to be selected to trial the Mamaway disposable breastpads and have been using them exclusively for a couple weeks now. My 4th baby was only a couple weeks old when they arrived in the mail, with his sleeping still ad hoc which was playing havoc with my supply & leaking. I had previously tried many of the disposable brands with my other babies, so didn't even bother to check out what was available this time, simply stocked up on my favourite brand.
Overall, I have been really impressed by the Mamaway breastpads and would definitely consider buying them in future. This is why...
They are individually wrapped which makes them easy to pop in the purse or baby bag or just change one side which tends to be leakier (my favourite ones also have this feature).
The adhesive strip is thick and runs right across the pad which means they stay stuck where they are supposed to be, rather than getting crumpled or coming loose during the day (this feature is better than my favourite ones)
They are super absorbent and actually suck the moisture away from the skin. The first couple times I thought it was odd that they were completely dry, until I realized the milk had just been sucked under the top layer (my favorites are also super absorbent but can sometimes feel a bit sweaty/moist).
They are large, but shape easily and fit well... And they feel soft against the skin without any scratchiness like some other brands.
I hope this is useful information... For me the trial has definitely been useful introducing me to a real alternative to my favourite brand of disposable breast pads. :-)
