I purchased a lot of pads from a range of stores and found these to be really good. They were thick enough to provide me with comfort after giving birth as I found others weren't soft enough. They were changed on a regular basis but I never had any issues with leaks.
Ideal for those first few days. The wings keep them in place too.
I bought these maternity pads for my hospital bag, to use post partum. They are very absorbent and the material is comfortable. The shape is another story: it just didn't feel right "down there", the pad would move from side to side and would go up on the middle, causing some discomfort. The wings are quite tricky too, they would almost stick to the bottom of the pad, making it difficult to put in place. For their price I think they could be better.
I bought these to take to the hospital for post birth. Personally I found them too thick and therefore uncomfortable to wear.
They do have good absorption and the wings help to keep them in place. One annoying thing about the wings is they tend to fold under and stick to the underside of the pad as you are putting in place. You then need to be careful when I sticking to prevent loss of stickiness. They are quite pricey as well.
Personally I preferred the ultra slim with wings and found then to be absorb enough.
I originally bought supermarket maternity pads but when I was post-birth I just knew they weren’t going to cut it in terms of absorption and comfort.
I found these very comfy in relation to my stitches due to the thickness of the padding and I felt very secure in terms of absorption.
I personally changed every time I went to the toilet following advice from the midwife (to reduce chances of infection) but they probably could have remained in place for every other trip even in the first few days.
The only issue I had was the wings would get stuck to the pad when putting in place and would require careful unsticking so not to create rumples in the pad which reduces stickiness or becomes rumpled (& therefore discomfort).
