Ask your question

  • 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



  • I liked johnsons but sometimes I wore two



  • Hope you managed to find some that worked for you.
