Thin and Discreet
These nursing pads are fairly thin in comparison to some of the thicker nursing pads. If you are leaking milk heavily, which can happen when your milk first comes in, NUK Ultra Thin Disposable Nursing Pads might not be ideal. But when your milk comes in and gets established, these pads might work really well depending on the amount of leakage you have. Here is how a customer explained the thickness,
"These are great thin nursing pads to use after your milk supply has been established. I don't really leak too much during the day and I hate the way some of the bulkier disposable or cotton nursing pads feel. These are also fairly discreet unless you're wearing a close fitting knit top and no padded bra, in which case you'll be able to see the outline."
Easy Access/Not Individually Wrapped
These pads are not individually wrapped. The majority of customers commented favorably about that for a variety of reasons. Some people didn't like how wasteful it is when each pad is individually wrapped, while others found it wastes their time unwrapping them. Here is one of the positive comments left by a customer concerning the lack of individual wrapping,
"THANK YOU NUK for not putting extra packaging on these things. Sure, the idea of having a wrapper might make it appealing for 'on the go', but most of the time I'm at home and really prefer to have less garbage and less hassle. These just come in a stack and require nothing more than opening the box to access and use. I throw a few in a ziploc baggy to put in my diaper bag and pumping bag."
Not For Heavy Leakage
As mentioned above, these are thin pads. Consequently, they are not good for heavy leakage. This was one of the most common comments left by customers,
"Because of their breathability I would not recommend these disposable pads if you have a high amount of leakage as they will not catch everything and it leaks through the back onto your clothing."
According to the majority of customers who wore these pads, they are comfortable. Here is one of the comfort responses left by a customer on Amazon,
"They are also more comfortable against my skin than others I've tried (Lansinoh, Medela). Overall very satisfied!"
The NUK Ultra Thin Disposable Nursing Pads are an inexpensive box of 66 count nursing pads. Because they are thin, they aren't good for a lot of leakage. However, the thinness is a good feature when you want to be discreet. Most of the customer comments on comfort were very positive. I hope that my review of the NUK Ultra Thin Disposable Nursing Pads can help you decide if this is the nursing pad for you!
