What types of nursing pads do you use or plan on using?

I was given a box of Avent pads and bought a box of Lansinoh. I actually prefer the Ameda pads I got in a sample pack with my pump.

I like Nuk nursing pads. My best friend gave me a box and when it was gone, I bought another box.

I bought some reusable ones. I haven't used them yet, my milk isn't fully in quite yet, but they seem pretty thirsty!

I had/have the lansinoh brand that I LOVED. I also had about 8 pair of reusable ones (don't remember what brand or where I got them), but I couldn't use them in the beginning because I would soak right through them in one feeding. After a few months or so, once my supply evened out, i was able to use them on a regular basis.

Are reusable ones a good idea? I have two sample pairs that I got from WIC and I'm hesitant to give them a try.

I have a bunch of samples plus a box of lanisoh as well as Nuk brand but I don't use too often as they lay against the nipples and mine are already flat which makes latching/feeding hard

I use Medela disposables. They work really well and are super absorbent which is a must for me because I leak a TON in the first few weeks until my supply evens out.

I have some medela reusable ones and I like them. I hate leaky boobs too. But I am glad I have that problem.

I leak so bad in the middle of the night if she doesn't wake up after about 2 hours, and I also leak out of whatever boob she isn't feeding on. So weird.

I have a couple sets of Bamboobies, then I made my own based on their shape. I actually prefer mine because they're a little more absorbent. I used PUL, hemp terry, and organic bamboo velour.

I have some of the lansinoh brand but I don't care for them too much. I really like the medela cloth ones.

Currently I am using the Up and Up brand. I like the size of them, but they are not thick enough. Granted I don't pump as much as I need to which may be part of the problem, but compared to the other brands I have used they are thinner.

I was just given a box of lansinoh and I bought 6 pairs of reusable ones. I do believe they are medela brand but couldn't be certain. I haven't had the need for them yet.
