Why are nursing pads wrapped seperately?

Are there really more women who only have one boob, compared to the number of women who have two boobs?

  • No. Of course not. But I leaked more from my right breast than my left, so I would change my nursing pad (if I used them) more often on my right side.

  • to keep them more sterile and like christa said, you don't necessarily need to change both at the same time.
    you don't want them in a 2 pack, open them, need one, and either have to put the other one somewhere were it could get dirty or just throw it out.

    common sense goes such a long way....

  • Maybe it's different in america, but they usually just come in a box in the UK.
    Not seperatly wrapped, what's the point?
    They don't pose an infection risk..... i just put them in a small bag in the changing bag.
