Ugh... so this is prolly TMI but maybe some of you are also suffering right along with me. Leaky boobs- just enough to stain my bras and a few times get on my shirts UGH!

Ive heard lanisoh breast pads are really nice... ive also heard there is something you can buy that prevents the leaking all together... I read about it in one of the other DDC's but now I cant remember the name or thread or anything!? Have you guys heard of anything like this?

I heard dried cabbage can dry it up but I think that's best used after baby is born.

I'm not sure of anything really I've always just dealt with it because mine didn't leak too bad. Have you thought of maybe nursing pads?

I was thinking of rigging something up with Saran Wrap and athletic tape, but i am sure there are easier options.

I don't recommend preventing leaking if you plan to BF. Any natural supplements have side effects, believe me! I gave poor kameron bad gas =(

I LOVE the lansinoh pads myself....comfy and absorbe a lot ;-) Never ever ever use the reusable, washable pads, if you actually have quantities of milk coming out. They will make your whole shirt wet and quite frankly, a little smelly!

On the bright side, some women would kill to produce milk! hee hee

oh yes i didnt mean anything I could ingest.... i heard of these pads that were almost made of some type of material that looked like silicone if that made sense? and put a little pressure on there to stop the leaking....

I always like the J&J Breast pads, they seemed smoother under my bra than the Lansinoh or Medela ones.

Johnson & Johnson Contour Nursing Pads - 60 Pads - Best Price

This may be what you were thinking of...
LilyPadz Nursing Pads- 1 Pair - Best Price

I use the J&J pads for my leaky problems I just wish that they could still give you the pill to dry up your milk after baby arrives, because i hate this leaky mess already and I'm not looking forward to when the leak becomes a waterfall

Yea that would be me! Haha. I never leaked with my 1st nor was I even able to breastfeed. This time I havent leaked either and we asked the dr about it last week and she says I should be able to breastfeed anyways but lets see.

Got a little off topic sorry. But no I have no idea what you can use but the breast pads some ladies have recommended sound good so far.
