During pregnancy, I bought six 36-piece boxes of Pigeon Disposable Breast Pads when they were on sale (2 boxes at RM36). However, I turned out to be a non-leaky breastfeeding mummy, so they were not very useful to me.
Since the breast pads were dry most of the time, I did not have to replace them often. In the end, the adhesive tapes frequently got stuck together at the second or third feeding session when I moved my nursing bra, causing much frustration.
I have since switched to washable breast pads, which are much more comfortable due to the absence of adhesive and cost-efficient. These disposable breast pads did prove useful when I was too ill and tired to handwash the cloth ones.
- Soft material
- Relatively large for more coverage
- Curved design fits breasts’ natural shape
- Convenient when unable to do laundry
- Adhesive tapes could stick together when moving pad too much
- Expensive (RM0.50/piece, which means at least RM1/day!)
