I used these to protect if my waters broke. They were great in the car. I was 6 days overdue and used the same pad for nearly two weeks I think, occasionally moving it between cars and seats.
I followed the instructions and before birth I put it under my sheet on the bed. I found that it moved about and I had to check it and put it back in the right place every couple of nights.
After birth I used them on top of the sheet and they did seem to stay in place better. I haven't tested their absorbance as my waters didn't break and I didn't leak very much when I got home but they were reassuring none the less.
I bought these to protect the bed in case my waters broke. I was induced early so they were never used as intended. Instead, they were a God send post birth! I used them in the car and to protect the mattress! I have also since used them as a waterproof sheet to cover the crib mattress if the ones I bought are in the wash ?
Another bonus is that you can normally grab these on a 3-4-2 offer.
These were a god send the days after giving birth. Saved me embarrassment in the morning if my partner spotted that I had leaked - which happened often. Easy to dispose of, saves changing bed sheets everyday.
I used these on my bed late pregnancy in case my waters broke, I found that they made me sweat in the night and they didn’t stay in place at all meaning that by the morning they were normally scrunched up to the side. I also used them post partum and they did provide protection from leakages! I think that they are a very reasonable price if they stay in place but aren’t very reliable to use overnight so wouldn’t necessarily recommend them.
I had one of these on my bed when my waters broke, they are very absorbing and my bed stayed dry throughout. I also used one on the car ride to the hospital to keep the seats dry. They are very easy to use and I like the size of them. They are also convenient price wise.
I found these maternity pads perfect for me. I would say I had an average blood loss after forceps delivery. But it lasted for 5 weeks and then I got my period. So in total I used these pads for around 7/8 weeks.
The thickness was just right, as some brands can be too thick and move around in your briefs and others just not thick enough. They stayed in place and also offered padding for the tenderness.
I had no leaks what so ever, even through those sleepless nights when you're up and down out of bed (nigh feeding) all night long.
The price is also good and I'm not sure if I was lucky at the time but these maternity pads were on offer 3for2 when I was using them, so look out for the offers too!
Although my waters didn't break at home, these were fab at protecting my mattress after I had baby! With all the after birth problems it put my mind at rest knowing my mattress wasn't going to get ruined!
These were a godsend after my c section. Fantastic absorbency, stuck well, and were a perfect length. I also found them extremely comfortable - Normal sanitary pads can leave me very sore but these were thick and soft without being irritating. Fragrance free too. They were cheap, and was able to fit a few packets into my maternity bag easily. Will probably continue to use instead of sanitary pads from now on!
I used these under the bed sheet when I was due to have my little boy and good thing I did as my waters broke in bed! Also used in the car on the way to hospital. They absorbed well and didn’t need changing very often. After I had given birth I left a few in the boot of mine and my partners car and they were great for emergencies! (Awkward car nappy changes and any worries during first periods after baby) Would definitely recommend to have around for anyone expecting.
Great for at home and extremely this and comfortable, feels like a cushion. Only disadvantage for an active mum is that they are not wrapped individually therefore need to use a separate bag to keep clean if you are to swap pads whilst out. Great absorption
Little expensive for something you throw away so quickly
Security / Hygiene
So glad I had this on hand, put it under my bed sheet which was so good as my waters broke overnight. So glad I had them on hand to stop the leaking getting through onto my mattress. Also used in the car on the way to hospital
Great for after birth as well to lie on and air out after a shower to help with healing, helps keeps everything clean and hygienic.
We all need them after having a baby. I get a reaction to most sanitary products so was over the moon when these didn't affect me in the same way ? they were comfy although a little long *add to the freezer to chill prior to use for optimal after birth relief* absorbent and did the expected job. The price was very reasonable.
Brought this on a 3 for 2 offer which was great. Mixed it with the maternity pads.
The price was reasonable for the five mats.
It was big enough to fit my side of the bed. But moved around, which can be annoying.
Honestly, I didn’t end up using a lot of them, as I didn’t bleed onto the bed. But will use them when little one starts potty training.
Put these over our bed sheets for when I had my little one really heavy flow and didn't want to flood everywhere in case i did saved my bed comfortable to sleep on and super soft Good size and absorbed fluid well, highly recommend.
Very comfy and soft on skin. Used ordinary pads at first as I had baby early and hadn’t bought everything I needed by then and they were horrible in comparison. It doesn’t feel like you’re wearing a nappy which some do.
After the birth of my son i used these. They were fantastic comfortable kept me dry didn't slip or leak best buy i used them for weeks and the price was respectable for the product i also sent my sister in law them in a care package after she had her child after i had mine.
These little bad boys were life savers after birth. We all know what happens after birth, and having these pads was really amazing. I thought they were too big when I first bought them but definitely not. Definitely recommend it for the hospital bag!
Theses mats are really good for their price. Remind me of inco pads from the hospital but nicer.
They're great for putting your mind at ease while you're sleeping, especially towards the end of your pregnancy if you're worrying your waters might break in your sleep.
It's a safe, cost effective way to protect your mattress and sheets.
