Buy Maternity Pads & Maternity Care Products from Mothercare

Embracing the journey of motherhood involves more than just caring for your little ones. As a new mum, you also need to ensure that you take care of your own health and comfort. Understanding this, Mothercare Malaysia offers a range of maternity essentials to tide you through the fourth trimester and beyond. Whether it’s maternity sanitary pads, maternity bra pads, breast pads, maternity towels, or maternity pillows, our products are designed and selected to provide you with the comfort and care you need during this special time.

How to Best Prepare for Postpartum

We understand that preparing for the postpartum period can feel daunting. To make things easier, we've put together a few tips to help you prepare, along with suggestions on how our maternity care products can support you during this time:

  • Stock up on maternity pads: After childbirth, your body will need time to heal and recover. Maternity pads are different from normal sanitary pads and are intended to handle heavier flows with greater comfort. Our disposable maternity sanitary pads and towels allow you to feel comfortable all day long, so you can relax and enjoy your time with your newborn.
  • Prepare for nursing and leaks: Whether you choose to breastfeed or not, your breasts will produce milk after childbirth. Breast pads and other maternity nursing accessories help provide protection and absorb any leaks, keeping you dry and comfortable. We offer a variety of options for you to buy breast pads online, including disposable breast pads from renowned brands like Tommee Tippee, Pigeon, and Loveamme.
  • Be gentle on your body: Your body has gone through some intense physical changes, and it’s best not to rush it through recovery. Comfort is key to ensuring a smooth recovery journey, regardless of how you delivered your baby. Pregnancy pillows can provide much-needed support during this time by helping relieve pressure from your abdomen when nursing or resting.
  • Prioritise your own hygiene: With everyone’s focus being on the newborn, it’s easy to overlook mum’s own hygiene. Disposable maternity toiletries like disposable pads and briefs can help maintain cleanliness and hygiene during the initial postpartum period, especially if you’re already functioning on low energy and minimal sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions About Maternity Care Products

Are maternity pads different from normal pads?

Yes, maternity pads are indeed different from regular sanitary pads. They are typically longer, softer, and more absorbent to accommodate the heavier flow and discharge often experienced by new mums after childbirth. Their design also focuses on comfort and minimising irritation, which is critical as your body heals and recovers post-delivery.

When should I start using maternity pads?

Maternity pads should ideally be used immediately after childbirth. Since they are specifically designed to manage the heavier flow that new mums experience, it's beneficial to start using them as soon as you need to. It's a wise idea to purchase and pack these in your hospital bag well before your expected delivery date, just in case your little one decides to make a surprise early entrance into the world.

Should I sleep with breast pads?

If you are experiencing leakage, it may be helpful to wear breast pads at night to protect your clothes and bedding. However, for hygiene reasons, it is recommended that you should change them before going to sleep and whenever they become wet. This will help prevent rashes or skin irritation as a result of excess moisture and friction.
