file Fabric/cloth breast pads - help please!

4 years 3 months ago #260042 by gloeiwurmpie
Hi Ladies,

Can somebody please give advise to which brand fabric breast pads have worked for them (if any...) since I tried the Cariwell brand and it leaked (although they are soft and comfy).

Thank you so much!!

i'm posting these links here as well if someone else might also want to try them.
there are more places online that you can get them - alot of the cloth nappy pages sell them

i do not have experience with them yet, but i do think that they might be better quality than the dischem ons

here is some links should you want to try them out:

I must say I liked the Pigeon ones... I suffered from hyperlactation so always had too much milk and they only leaked when they became REALLY full... I changed them at every feed and that prevented them from leaking...

And they are not that expensive for that big box... they also don't show through your clothes... when I was home I would use the Medela Milk Collector that would catch whatever I leaked and I could use that for top up feeds etc when we started introducing the bottle...

All the best!

Hi Antz,

I am currently using the Pigeon disposable breast pads, but I have nipple thrush so I want to try a more cotton breathable option - fabric. I agree that I haven't had any leaks with the Pigeon disposables but I don't find them very breathable either, hence the good absorption I guess. :side:

StellaK - Thank you for the links. I wish somebody could just give me a review of a brand that they found worked before I spend anymore money. Judging by the overseas reviews of different brands, some brands tend to leak more than others so I was hoping somebody could give me a bit of a review before I part with my money. B)

Thank you ladies!!

completely understandable. i'll ask around a bit and see if i can get you some feedback

i have received a pair of the mother nature ones and they really look very nice and i thought i will go with them.
with G i also had lots of milk and leaked terribly, so the mother nature ones looked like the best option to me - i know their nappies are extremely absorbent and its basically the same material

StellaK - Okay, I have just ordered the mother Nature breast pads. Hopefully will have them in a week's time. Will come and give feedback.
But would love to hear from other ladies and their experiences too since I would like to get more since I plan to breast feed for a while still and prefer to go the fabric/cloth route rather than disposables.

The Avent fabric breast pads get good reviews on Amazon. I see Dischem also sells them.

Thanks again!
