Do you wear them? Disposable or reusable? All the time, or only when going out?

I have a lot of pretty reusable ones that I bought online. I wear them ALL of the time during the day. They have helped keep my poor nipples happy. They are so soft and cushiony!

Yes, I wear them 24/7. I have disposables, but I'm still trying to figure out what brand I like.

Don't wear them anymore. I did wear washables, the disposable ones irritated my nipples.

All the time ... disposables from Target. If I didn't wear them I'd leak all over. I also have milkies I wear occasionally

I haven't been wearing them. I wore gel pads in the beginning, but mostly when I was home, I didn't bother with breast pads. Anna has always been a frequent feeder...every hour during the day, in general, so I rarely had a letdown before she was ready to nurse. And if she ever took a longer nap, I was usually hand expressing anyway. And sometimes I did leak, but I didn't worry too much about it if I was at home. I have worn them here & there if I'm going out somewhere. I have a ton of disposable ones...I bought a box before I had Grace, and never used very many. I also have at least one box that the hospital gave me.

man wish I could could without them. I can't even begin to count the number of boxes I have gone through. I tried the reusable ones but sometimes I leak so bad that it goes right through them. The worst is when she is nursing the other side will do a major let down, like right through the reusable ones in about a min. I always have to change my pad on the non nursing side after I nurse her.

I used the reusable ones all the time for the first 6 weeks or so, but I don't need them anymore. I was always washing them and leaked through them several times. I'm glad that I don't need them anymore.

Only when I'm going out, and only sometimes. I haven't really needed them this time, for the same reasons Kimberly gave. Sammy still nurses pretty frequently, too.

Maybe I just have an easy let down or something. R nurses all the time, some days I feel like she is attached all day, but I still get lots of leaking.

Could be. I had a much more forceful let down with Grace, though it eventually calmed down. Funny thing is that my supply is actually better this time. So far.

I use the reusable ones. I use them anytime I'm wearing a bra, which is pretty much all day long. But I get a break at night.
