    hi ladies,

    I cant keep away from third tri it seems :)

    i had an episiotomy (and a pretty big one at that) which is now infected so i'm pretty sore down below.

    I had stocked up on tesco maternity pads but they werent that absorbant.

    I tried boots ones which were a little better but still, not that comfortable.

    My partner popped to waitrose as its our local shop and found these "natracare" maternity pads and oh my, they are sooo comfortable!

    They're soft and really absorbant. they're pricy at around £2 something for 10 but soooo worth it for the additional comfort over the cheaper ones if you're unlucky enough to be in a similar position to me.

    Thought i'd share :)

    I bought the boots ones. 4 packs and the 2 packs of the slim maternity ones for when the flow slows. I am pretty sure waitrose is only england and I am in scotland. i am hoping the boots ones serve me well.

    Thanks for the reviews though, it always helps :)

    yep the two links you ladies put up are the ones. They're just sooo soft and absorbant compared to the cheaper ones. i'm sure if you had a different kind of delivery then the others would be fine but for me, i'm a bit extra sore so these have been a dream.

    its like comparing tesco value sanitary towels to the always silk ones IYKWIM
