Ok, this might sound trivial, but these breastpads are driving me mad!!
I'm currently using Tommee Tippee closer to nature disposable pads but they make me itch and the edges scratch me. I really need them, though, or else I'd be leaking through to my clothes. I've also tried boots and Mothercare pads (the thin ones as I find the thicker ones show through my clothes), but they seem even more itchy. I have some washable pads also, but these rub my nipples and make them sore so it seems I can't win!
Has anyone found any pads that are comfortable and don't show through their clothes?
Thanks Ladies! I'll go and investigate washables tomorrow!! I've got boots washables, but they show through your clothes if you are wearing a close fitting top. Do you find that they are absorbent enough? I'm worried about having two circles of milk on my top!!
Which washables does everyone recommend? I hate my Mothercare ones because they look really obvious under clothes. I stupidly went into work last week without wearing pads, telling myself I'd be ok for a couple of hours but my boss told me I was leaking
Ive used them all! Got to be LANSINOH for me, I have boots washables and can see them massively throu tops. In early days every pad i used leaked where as now 5mth on use Lansinoh in day and cheapies in bed.
Lansinoh disposables! Washables nice if leaking not too bad, but all visible through tops. Lansinoh contain gel like nappies, so last for ages, so cost/environment impact not as bad as other disposables.
Seems like it is personal preference on these things! Think I might give the Lansinoh ones a try (if they are half as good as the cream, then they will be fab!!). I had a free sample of them in the bounty pack, but used them without taking too much notice!! If they are comfy I can use them in the day and my washables at night.
