I've been buying Rite Aid breast pads from Woolworths, they're about $7 a box and I go through 1-2 boxes a week so it's getting to be very expensive! Plus it's a pain to keep buying them so often, so I wanted to buy a bulk lot and hoping to get them cheaper. Can anyone provide a store / website details where I can get these?
I'm sure people will suggest cloth pads, but I leak so much that I don't trust cloth ones at this stage (maybe later on when my milk settles down more). Just thought I'd put it out there before I get flooded with the suggestion :-)

I don't know either maybe e bay?
I know u said u don't want cloth yet... but if in the future you do bamboo ones are meant to be more absorbent. Good luck!

They are $6.39 at chemist warehouse if that helps :-)

I bought mine from Baby's R Us early on ($7 as well - just checked their site ), then changed to bamboo cloth ones from Pea Pods - DD is 6mths now n I still leak during my let down! At the beginning I leaked A LOT, but the Pea Pods pads never 'let me down' - plus I was sure to have a lot of air time as well (didn't like the idea of my nipples constantly encased in a warm, wet environment).

i've used the coles brand ones $4 for a box of 40. not bad quality. mum also made me some cloth ones which i've used at home.

The bamboo ones didn't work for me as i need the protective cover for the leakage factor.
I get the same ones and i think they may have been cheaper at big w.

could you try the cloth onez at home anx use the rite aid ones when out??
used to get a 60 pack for 9 bucks at big w( or was it kmart) worked out cheaper doing it that way... But still quite expensive. For Months on end i soaked through the rite Id bpads, it was horrible so i was constantly chNging the thru the day. It Got to the point that cos j wasnt going Nywhere i just decided to wear my bf bras around the house and not worry if i leaked. Dd is 1 now and we are still bfing but i havent needed to wear bpads in a while now that my milk has settled.
(i just realised that there are a load of typos in my post. Sorry. hope You understandwhat i typed)

I found that was the only brand I liked. I got fed up using them and eventuallyy milk settled down and I didn't need to. Putting pressure on your nipples will help them stop leaking.
