Hi girls, having done a few searches here on maternity pads alot of you recommend the hospital ones, or describe them as the big green ones. Someone thought they might be called BN or something? Just wondering if anyone has these at the moment and could check the name as hope to get them at the weekend and would love to name for when I go asking around Galway!
not sure what they're called, but you defo can't miss them in the chemists!! I got them in Unicare, sometimes they're on the shelf, but if you ask for them, they usually hold stock behind the counter....
thank you! Not sure if there's unicare in Galway- there might be, thanks for replies!
Are you near a maternity hospital?
In Holles street shop on the ground floor they sell them.
Whats the story with these pads, are the better than the others?
apparently they are better -these are the ones recommended by midwives. Some other brands have stitching or plastic backs, which can apparently be very uncomfortable if you have a lot of bleeding or tears/stitches....
They're [b:2dgjc1om]definitely[/b:2dgjc1om] better. They're specifically made to cope with lochia, unlike sanitary towels, and are very absorbent. Yes, they're huge, but they're not that thick. (I used the crappy Mothercare maternity pads underneath them if I needed extra cushioning).
Having used a couple of different pads after I had DD, these are the only ones I would use again.
Hi Shinning Star
I got those last week in the chemist at the Dunnes in Briarhill in Galway. They were only about €3.00 per pack and were out on a shelf.
How many packs should you get?
