I have found it difficult to find a good breast pad since the birth of my 3rd child, who is now 10 weeks old. Since the birth of my children, I have found that my skin is more sensitive so it is really difficult to find a product that doesn't irritate my skin.
The Mamaway Breast Pads arrived very quickly and i was impressed with the larger pack size with 32 pads. Most other brands have 24 in their packs. The Mamaway pads are individually wrapped which is great for the nappy bag. The outer packaging is plastic, much like sanitary pad packaging, I probably prefer cardboard as it is recyclable.
The pads are a good size, they don't stick to my nipples and don't get the jelly like consistency when full. I haven't found any separation of the filling either, which has happened with some other brands. There has not been any balling on the surface of the pad . They are quite absorbent even though they are fairly thin and I like that they do not have the inbuilt nipple shape and they are discreet under clothes.
I don't use the adhesive backing so I find (as with all other brands) that the backing strip irritates my skin a bit, I have also found the edges of the pad can sometimes feel a bit scrathy and irritate my skin a little but not causing any redness.
At $9.99 for 32, they work out more expensive than the other brands I have used (Mamaway $0.31 per pad vs other brand I've used at up to $0.25) however buying online is convenient and postage is free. Also, on the Mamaway website currently if you buy 3x packs there is a discounted price of $24.00 which equates to $0.25 per pad. I also enjoyed looking at the Mamaway catalogue that was included!
Overall a very good product that I would certainly use again although I would probably only buy the 3x packs at the discounted rate.
