Hi girls, I was just wondering if any of you could tell me from which week onwards I will need to use the disposable breast pads? I saw them in mothercare during the week but I didn't bought them cause I wasn't too sure at what time the breast can start to leak. :-8 Thanks

Well mine have started now, although not very much. Only a dot or two, still haven't bought any, but think I will this weekend.

My brests never leaked during pregnancy. It varies a lot. I guess no harm buying them, at least you'll have some if needed.

[quote="Baby on board":vgmmxahn]Ok I dont know if this forum is a good or a bad thing....your breast can leak before you have the baby??? I really am clueless![/quote:vgmmxahn] yes it can. I read it somewhere but can't remember where I read it and from which week onwards. I thought it would start later in pregnancy (a couple of weeks before the due date or so) but wasn't too sure. :o0

thanks poppy1. I actually bought a pack from Johnson&Johnson yesterday in Boots. I didn't wanted to buy the boots own brand and thought that Johnson&Johnson always has a good reputation for baby products anyway. So thought I rather buy them.. :o0

I never leaked during pregnancy. I only needed the pads for afterwards
