Small breast pads?

Have a 19 day old DD and been struggling with Boots disposable breast pads as have quite small boobs and they just feel so big and scrunch up a lot. Are there any that are smaller ones relevant to your cup size (can be disposable or re-useable)? Have been looking online, but many don't tell you the diameter and I don't want to spend a fortune trying lots of brands Thanks!

You'll probably get loads of suggestions, but maybe try the Johnsons ones as they are lovely and soft and more 'shaped' than other pads.

Congratulations btw.

Other than that try Avent pads. I got some free samples and I found them to be much smaller than most of the others!

The tescos own disposable ones are quite small and nicely padded - rich tea biscuit size I would say

I think I've tried them all, they're all roughly the same size, but if I had to say which were the smallest I would say Johnsons (they're also the most comfortable because they have shape).

Lansinoh pads are no smaller but scrunch up way less - better made plus they have 2 sticky pads not one. I have pretty big boobs and I still hated the Boots ones too.

another vote for the Lansinoh ones too - I am very small boobed and found them lovely and comfy, no scrunching up at all, just fab smile

Johnsons are good too, used them with DS1, but preferred the Lansinoh this time round.

could you get someone to make you some?
I made some when I ran out of the freebies someone gave me, and I still wear them now.
Granted, DD was about 2 months old rather 19days, but if you asked someone, they might be willing.
(they don't scrunch and they're soft)

I used a thing fleece on the outside, with 2 layers of teeshirt fabric, and overlocked them in a circle.

i have to say, i've just measured mine, and they're 9.5cm in diameter, and most of the ones I've seen are 11cm..
