  • Pigeon are great disposable ones or bamboo for reusable.

  • Close to nature

  • Not sure what you are using at the moment but I use Pigeon! I swear by them, nice and thin so you can’t see any bulging through clothes. I guess everyone leaks at different rates but these have worked for me for all 3 children

  • I don’t think there are too many choices. Maybe suss out a large pharmacy like chemist warehouse and see if there are different brands. I know 15-19 years ago I couldn’t see any .

  • For both my pregnancy I bought Avent. I think from memory you got about 6 in a box for about $10 and they are washable.

  • I used Rite aid, fantastic value for money and 40 in a pack so you dont run out as quick :) Otherwise you can buy reusable ones.

  • My favourite were the Riteaid brand. Available from big W, most major supermarkets etc.

  • yeah the washable ones are soft and more moulding or pigeon or that cheaper box that you get at big w

  • Johnson & Johnson are good, or Pigeon. If you can be bothered, the cloth ones that you wash out & re-use are probably more comfortable.

  • J & J breastpad is the best!!!!!!!!!

  • You definitely need to shop around but I ended up going with the cloth washable ones.

  • Some good suggestions below that I hope helped.

  • Pigeon breast pads, they stay in place better and have a less obvious shape through your clothes -so less noticeable.

  • What breast pads did you end up buying?

  • Rite Aid breast pads from coles
