I haven’t had any problems with the pads moving or leaking through like others have, however they stick to my nipples badly. I have literally had to hold my breath and just rip them off because they just stick like glue. They even caused one of my nipples to bleed and crack. It’s probably the most painful thing I have ever experienced, even worse than childbirth. If anyone is looking for an alternative to this product the bio bums bamboo breast pads are amazing

Waste of money

First time trying reusable pads and these were useless. I tried 3 times and 3 times any milk just soaked through to my top. They don't absorb v well so was left really damp and also the fluffy material dries and sticks to your nipple so needs to be cleaned off every time you feed. Wouldn't recommend.

Terrible product that sticks to your nipples!

published

These breast pads were so painful to use. They stick to your nipples so are very sore to remove when your nipples are already so tender from breast feeding. They also leave behind a layer of fluff on your nipples so you are needing to pick this off (ouch) prior to feeding your baby. The material used is totally inappropriate for its purpose.

They're terrible

published

Terrible pads, my bra is completely soaked because they don't soak up any milk. They're moving around and when you try to take them off they stick to my nipples, ouch. They also look really bad after just a few washes. I would really like my money back cause this was a true waste.

If you could get them to curve a bit, the way the disposable pads do, I think that would help both issues a lot. They do feel a lot nicer than disposable ones too!

Painful

Painful!
These breast pads are terrible - they stuck to my nipples and it is painful trying to peel it off. The breast pads also leave behind a layer of fluff on my nipples so it's even more stressful and painful to remove it when I already have sore nipples. The material used on the pads are completely unsuitable for the intended purpose!

Great for my sensitive skin

published

I used these for my first bub 4 years ago and they were fantastic. I can't use disposables as they irritate my nipples and cause blocked ducts in my nipples. These were the perfect solution as they are far softer than the paper like disposables. They are not fully waterproof but that is why I like them, wearing a nappy on my breasts causes problems, I prefer natural fibres and airflow.
I am having trouble finding them now with my new baby, I guess with all the bad reviews the chemists aren't stocking them which means I'm waking around with wet shirts!

Disappointed

published

Considering its washable i thought its a great idea and ill be able to save money. But it turns out i have to go back to the disposable ones. Made my shirt wet and can't hold enough leaks. And it sticks to my nipple with a bit of a fluff. Not just that its easy to pull out during feedings.

Doesn't work the way it should.

published

Doesn't work, doesn't absorb and i end up with a wet shirt within an hour or two of wearing them. I had used this product in previous pregnancies and can't remember having these troubles or i would've stuck to disposable pads instead of purchasing these. Even as i type I have only just put the breast pads on half an hour ago, and my shirt is wet already! Unfortunately looks like its back to disposable ones for me.

Every two to four hours is understandable... but leaking through not even half an hour after putting them on is not - the disposable ones have only required changing every 2-4 hours, but not the washable ones.

Not as expected at all!

published

Purchased 2 packs of these having high hopes as they are from a reputable brand Avent. Thinking that they are cotton, washable and waterproof as advertised but they are a complete wasfe of money. Very disappointed! They leaked right through, sticks to nipples and when take it off, it leaves bits and pieces of fluff from the cotton fabric on my nipples- meaning that if not wiped with water before feeding my baby will have swallow those flufffs! It traps moisture. Don't recommend for anyone thinking it is waterproof because it is not!

Leaks through and sticks to my nipples, unfortunately disappointed.

published

I got these to wear over night and already had some reusable washable ones so I wanted to have a weeks worth of pads. These leak through to the point I feel like I needn't bother putting them on at all, my top is soaked by morning around the under outer edge of these pads. They also stick to my nipple meaning they need to be ripped off at feeding time which is not the most comfortable of things to have to do. I have bamboo reusables that are softer and don't leak so I should have just gotten more of these.
Wish I hadn't bothered with this product, I'm surprised as thought Avent was a reputable brand.
I have a picture of my top after one night but this site will not allow me to attach it.

My biggest problem / concern with these pads is that they stick to my nipples which results in little bits of fluff staying on my nipple when my son is screaming for a feed. It's an unnecessarily stressful experience while I try to pick the fluff off. Unfortunately I've had to buy other breast pads as I cannot use these ones.

Just like everyone else, wish I had read the reviews first... not happy!!

published

So disappointed to finally use these. I didn't even get a chance to see if they were absorbent or not as I put them in but the outline of them (because they're so stiff and have no shape/don't curve around the breast) completely showed through my top. No chance I could've left the house in them. It looked ridiculous... big discs on my chest. How are these even on the market? Especially when I read about all the other issues on here!! Feel completely ripped off!! : (

Disappointing product

published

I brought these in the hope that I would save some money by not having to buy the disposables pads. However, first try and they were terrible. I found one of the pads had moved to the middle of my chest. Another while positioned over my breast had somehow allowed a leak at the bottom of my bra. It's as though they are not very absorbent. I really wanted these to work. The only way I can see these working is by wearing a tighter bra, which is not recommended as it can put pressure on milk ducts.

Work great!

Love these! Saved alot of money being able to wash them and reuse. When baby was a new born they soaked through quickly with my let down but was easy enough to swap them over with a dry pair. May be more comfortable to use once milk supply has settled down and baby is a few weeks old, but had no trouble using them with my second bub straight from birth. First use tend to get a little fluff stuck to nipple but within a few washes that is gone. Would definitely recommend to new mums as I didn't know about them until another mum told me!

Waste of money!

My husband bought these for me as the chemist didn't have the regular disposable ones. After he purchased them he said he was sorry as he read all the bad reviews. I thought I'll give them a go anyway. Well all the reviews were right. They were not non slip, they leaked and they stuck to my nipples. This product is useless, do not buy!

Expensive garbage, don't bother.

published

I bought these not long after having my baby hoping that I could save some money as I was spending a fortune on disposables. They just don't work at all. They're not absorbent, stick to the nipple causing a huge amount of pain when you already have damage, and the small amount of moisture they hold isn't wicked away, it's just held there against the skin resulting in irritation and damage to already sensitive nipples.

Awful and rather useless

published

It's as if they just don't absorb anything at all! I got them as an alternative to disposables but my bra/shirt was soaked through with the first let down and the pad still felt dry. Very disappointed, if you are thinking about buying this product... don't. hopefully advent will make some improvements.

Hi Lynn. We regret to hear about the difficulties you've experienced with the breast pads. They should be leak proof of course. Thanks for taking the time to write this feedback, it's appreciated.

Hi Michaela, as soon as I had my let down I leaked everywhere. My daughter feeds every 2-3 hours at the moment. I haven't used the pads since.
