Dont waste the money on breast pads... cut a maxi pad in half and stick to your bra. Works better than any breast pad i found.

I liked the ones by Johnson and johson (not the ones with that fabric coating like Always maxi's have)

I got J and J washable ones. But I had to change them out in the middle of the night when we finally started sleeping more during the night.

Forgot to mention the Naturekins pads were organic velour and the leak proof layer was wool and I only needed to use one layer even at night.

Naturekins no leak reusable pads !. I couldn't believe how absorbent and soft they were and they never leaked even though I was a heavy leaker.

Lansinoh... worked best for me... I had some other brand and they leaked badly... never had one leak with Lansinoh.

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.

I've nursed 2 kids and the best pads I've ever used....and I've tried MANY....are the Lansinoh pads!

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.

My fave were the Johnson and Johnson ones. They were thick and had a more gentle, cotton feel that could still breath.

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 liked J&J they are nice and thick. I also like the lansolin(sp?) because they have a sticky strip to put in your bra so it doesn't move around.

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
