Breast pads can be a commonly overlooked item in your maternity bag. The main use of the breast pads is that they absorb the excess released milk, preventing embarrassing damp circles around your nipples. They also protect your clothing from becoming stained and the odour of milk being trapped in your clothing.
Disposable breast pads work in a similar way to your baby's nappy in that they absorb the excess milk in an absorbent polymer core which then turns the liquid into a gel.
