to think Mothercare shouldn't sell packs of 25 breast pads?

I mean, wouldn't they generally work better in multiples of two?

Couldn't they throw in one extra, or indeed take one out?

this also really annoyed me when i had dd1 grin

lol i never thought of that.

Can see your point but due to unpredictable leakage times and quantities! i often just changed one at a time so would never have noticed an odd number anyway.

cheesesarnie Sun 09-Aug-09 16:21:08

Dlamis true!i never really changed 2 at a time.

Haha! Yanbu.

Really you're spending time worrying about this? hmm Look - most people would buy at least two boxes in their breastffeding career giving a total of 50 therefore 25 pairs - happy now? grin

Do you change both at the same time every time? I never did.

I'm forever leaking through the right but not the left, it is the ones that wrap them in separate packs of 2 that annoy me!

lol yes that is quite funny!

I'm another that had one overachieving boob. It's the smaller of the two and I always felt it was trying to compensate for that...

Well I always change both pads together, and yet am randomly left with one at the end of a box of 40, so I think a box of 25 would suit me fine grin

IlanaK Sun 09-Aug-09 22:13:27

I only ever leaked from one breast so it would have suited me fine!

I'm always irritated by them being wrapped individually. I like the ones you can just grab out of the box.

I asked my DP to bring me some downstairs recently and he appeared with 3!

Lol at overachieving boobs and DH's who think you have three, now that is overachieving grin.

I think mainly I was grumpy because they didn't have my favoured Lansinoh ones in.

Strangely I do have one odd pad in the cupboard, but not sure how as I usually change two together...
