yep - lansinoh. although, i was leaking REALLY bad when I first had my little one and gave up with pads and put a plastic bag and two cloth diapers over my chest. I should have slept in a chair with a jug under each boob! I could have fed so many kids! lilypadz were only great for me after the fourth/fifth month of nursing. I'd make so much that they'd fill up. the johnson and johnson ones i could see little particles of something on my tits from them and i sometimes stuck to them. not cool. i also bought some thicker disposable ones that soaked up a lot, but can't remember the brand. sorry. :( but really, the most economical were the washable cloth ones. I still have them and will use them this time again too.
By far, my favorite was the Lansinoh brand. They are in a lavender box, found at WalMart and Target. I was a heavy leaker so the washable ones were worthless to me, as they didn't hold enough. I tried the Lily Pads too, but they didn't seem to hold well enough to my breast . The Lansinoh ones are very soft on the nipple, but have a plastic-y type backing so they don't leak to your bra.

Medela makes some reusable ones but I've never tried them. I always liked my J&J ones, personally. But I never sleep in a bra. When I'm nursing I just wrap a towel around me so I don't get wet at night. I hate feeling confined while I sleep. :/

I really liked the Avent ones, but I always wanted to try the Lilly Pads! I just never got around to actually buying them..
I tried the J&J ones and didn't care for them, I thought they got sticky and itchy.. super gross lol
I'm expecting #2 and in all my preparations I bought organic cotton reusable ones, they feel very soft and I'm eager to try them out, but I'm not sure how absorbent they will be

I loved my Lily Pads, they are reusable, didn't have a leak with them. heres a link to them http://www.buybuybaby.com/product.asp?SK...
I had 2 pairs so when I would take off the one pair to wash, I had a clean pair ready to put on.
