New to Bounty?
You go all though life never even thinking about breast pads, but when your milk “comes in” in the days after giving birth, you will want to make sure you have the best of these sitting in your bra.
This stage can last a while, so expect to be wearing them for a few months while your body adjusts to your baby’s feeding.
This list will help you find the ones that suit you.
The winning baby products of the year have all been exhaustively tried, tested and voted on by real mums, bubs and Bounty’s expert panel.
This year the awards, proudly brought to us by Babies ‘R’ Us, saw more than 40,000 Aussie parents plus a panel of industry experts cast their votes on a range of products from nappies and car seats, to prams and breast pumps, judging each one on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
Products were put through their paces over a period of six months in three different settings: at home in real-life situations, in a retail environment and online. The products submitted were assessed on quality, value for money, user-friendliness and innovation.
