Wasted at least 3 cups of milk leaked through!
Complete waste! The my font even work I have woken up to at least 3 cups worth of milk leaked through my shirt! I had to change my shirt at 1am and now at 9 M I am completely saturated! Definitely a waste of time and I should have just got the more expensive brand
Recently changed adhesive - way too sticky now
I used these when I breastfed my first child and they were great, and have been using them for my second child but they seem to have changed the adhesive recently as it's now way too sticky! When I take them out of my bra to feed baby, i have to practically rip them out. Then they get firmly stuck to whatever surface I sat them on.
They are absorbent, I rarely have leaks. If my baby sleeps through the night (rare) they get really full but I mostly stay dry.
Just use sandpaper
I have sensitive nipples and these felt like sandpaper. The adhesive could be better as they tended to stick once and that's it. They were also very loud and scrunched up easily. It was the first nursing pads I tried and it put me off using any as my nipples felt raw after.
Every one ive used has broken and the internal gel crystals have leaked out. Ive found them on my baby's mouth and my breast wondering what they were. I hope he hasnt ingested any! This product cost $3 more than a generic brand and the generic brands havent broken once. Waste of money and a hazard
Buyers regret! The pad bunches up and the plastic on the back is so uncomfortable when touching the skin. Not nice to sleep with. Padding is thin and I found the pads to be too large which caused them bunching up. Was fooled by recommendations (maybe I got a dud pack who knows) won't be buying them again.
This product is terrible (there is no star option otherwise I would rate NO STAR at all)
The pads got loosen stitches that cause an open area from where the internal gel leaked out onto the boobs. I have noticed it during night feed. Hopefully nothing was eaten by my bub.
Note the pads that got loosen stitches and leaked the gel were just used for less than 1 hour during sleep. This has happened twice already (total 3 pads broken out of approx. 10 pads have been used).
Easy to find but super itchy & not very absorbent...
I find that Rite Aid Nursing Pads are available in most supermarkets & a number of pharmacies and are also one of the cheaper brands of nursing pads. However, I find them very itchy & uncomfortable almost immediately after placing them in the bra. The are also not very absorbent & as such don't last as long as others.
So so itchy!
Bunch up a lot. Even when they're freshly placed in the bra they are obvious. I like that they have a double sticky part but they don't stay put. I assume in the bunching process the sticky bit got stuck to my boob and I have cut up the skin scratching them. Very disappointing. Johnsons were much better
Worst purchase ever!
First of all they are not even sticky, so uncomfortable and worst quality compared to so many others out there. Wouldn't suggest anyone buy them. I haven't even started breast feeding yet, I'm still pregnant and I can tell these would not do a thing when I am breast feeding.
Not great compared to the Pigeon pads. Like every other review, they bunch up into a little ball and then stick to your skin. Terrible! Absorbency wise - they are good though. They only have sticky bits on one side of the pad so they move around a lot also.
bunches up, only one sticky bit which isnt even very sticky
Cheap and easy to find
I have been using breast pads for quiet a while these are alright once your sore boobs have settled they are super absorbent but do sweat and iche in summer takes abit to get used to they stick to your bra but then bunch up when feeding I gave up sticking thence to my bra
Can get sweaty and itchy
They are absorbent but not comfortable!
The Rite Aid pads are very absorbent but not comfortable at all. They are itchy on the skin and the plastic backcover hurts the breast skin. I wont be using them again.
Given the cheap price, I was initially drwn to them at the chemist but certainly dont deliver on quality.
They dont leak, and cheaper than other brands
Bad quality, uncomfortable!
Cheap and uncomfortable
I have tried heaps of different brands, these are ok. They bunch up and don't sit comfortably inside the bra, they also rustle quite loudly in comparison to some other brands. Having said that I haven't had a leak problem (and I have much to leak!) So they are ok.
I didn't leak, even with a fast letdown
Uncomfortable, noisy and they bunch up quite easily
Best by far
I have tried quite a few brands of disposable breast pads and these are by far the best. They were the only ones that catch all the leaks during the night.
Inexpensive, soft, breathable and comfortable. And most of all the most successful in catching all the leaks especially overnight.
I have only found them at Coles and Big W. Sometimes gets a bit bunched up in your bra and it becomes obvious your wearing them - just need a readjustment and its fine!
By far the best on the market
I tried several brands and Rite Aid are fantastic. The quality of their product and the way it is packaged show that they truly care and truly consider the user-friendliness of their product. They have thought of everything.
Absorbent, soft, practical packaging (protects pad whilst in handbag, easy to open), sticky surface on the back to secure inside your bra, well priced
The latest packs have two breast pads joined together on the assumption you will be changing them together, but often I'm required to just refresh one so I'd prefer that they were separate. A minor thing.
I have been using these since first trying them when my baby was about a month old. They soak up a decent amount of breastmilk, as I had an enthusiastic supply.
For me, I can't decide wether the individual wrapping is a pro or con. Great for before the supply/demand figures itself out, and you keep them in nappy bag/ handbag to change. A bit over the top really once the supply is regular, and doesn't need to be changed often
Biggest Pro is absorbancy- heaps better than washable breastpads
Thin and discreet in bra- doesn't show through
The sticky is ok, but not really great. Tends to come off when you fold down bra to feed
Most comfy disposable pads
I tried a couple of brands while breastfeeding, including the cotton washables and pigeon disposables, but this brand exceeds my expectations. Super wide yet thin enough to fit nicely in most bras, with sticky backing that actually works, this has been quite a lifesaver in those hectic days. They were also soft, great for use on the already sensitive breasts.
Packed individually in easy-tear plastic packaging, it's both hygienic and convenient. I can easily toss a few pairs in my nappy bag without worrying that it'll get dirty/wet.
Reasonably priced & comes in big box. Love 'em!
Soft, non-scratchy material, comfortably wide in size, discreet, hygienic, great value
I bought these breast pads as they were on special, but found that they are soo absorbent, and being a heavy leaker these worked overnight for me to. They are very big (diameter) and quite thin which makes them very discreet under clothing. They have the self adhesive tape to stop them moving around in your bra, they seem very breathable. They are individually wrapped for hygiene which makes them great to toss into your bag. They are always on special at the major supermarkets and come in bulk box.
Very absorbent, cheap!
Plastic coating can become noisy when sleeping (that could just be me, being a light sleeper)
