free breast pads?!

does anyone know where I can get free breast pads? I've decided to breastfeed my newborn son when he arrives in a few weeks and I know I need breastpads for leaking, I'm really short on money and can't really fit that into my budget and didn't think about it until today...are there any places that will give them out for free? even just as samples? Would WIC give some out for free?!

  • WIC usually has reusable cloth breastpads that they give out free.

  • nerdyYou might try a pregnancy help center. They probably have lots of supplies.

  • If you find a brand that you like, or if you feel like going to everysite you can generally get free samples. If you don't see any free sample options on their site I would email them or use the 'contact us' part and ask if there are free samples because you'd like to try their product before purchasing...

    That's what I'd do :")

  • Know anyone who can sew a basic stitch?

    I had my mom make me these ones. You can wash them and reuse
