the lani.so...??? you know that L word one lol I can't think of the name haha in the beginning because it was softest for very sore very leaky breasts. but by the end I liked Jonson and Jonson because they were less bulky.

I was not a leaker with DD in fact only leaked 1 time and it was my right boob and only about the size of a quarter the night my milk came in.
But I hear the more kids you have the better your supply is and I will probably be a leaker this time... plus I had to pump and bottle feed a lot in the begning so I think that messed up my supply.
But I was thinking of trying these...Amazon.com: LPSKS-Large: Baby

With DD I had the playtex pads and they were huge and bulky and you could see them in my bra. So I was wanting something less noticable.

I have to admit I am a little jealous of people that don't leak I'm a walking milk fountain. then again I am sure there are benefits to having leakyness ..I just don't know what lol.... the mass leaking gets old fast. I could not go with out a bra ever and I had to change the pads multiple times a day.

I'm a big leaker as well, and I also liked the Lansinoh (sp?) ones. I thought they had the best "fit" and stuck to my bra pretty well.

LOL tell me about it. I have sat here for hours trying to think of things to ask before..lol
I am trying to be very open minded and not just stick to things that are my parenting style.

Oh Im sure it would get old fast. I have a friend who had to take 2-3 shirts with her every time she planned to leave the house. She had to put chucks in her bed at night because she would be drenched.
BUT all the moms who were leakers that I have known always has really good supplys and that was something I struggled with. I was a horrible pumper too.
The friend I was talking about could nurse her baby on one side and hold a bottle under the other and get 3-4 oz from what just leaked out.... I could not even get that much from pumping.


So I was lucky that I did not have any embarassing wet tshirt moments.

I leaked the entire 12.5 months I nursed Lily and the 17 months I nursed Vi. My supply was insane with Lily, and just a slight oversupply with Vi. I had to wear nursing pads (sometimes 2 at a time on each side) the whole time I nursed.

I loved Lansinoh ones and Avent the most.

I agree with Lansinoh and J&J. To be fair, I haven't tried others just because I leak too much and if it works, I stick with it.

I used these, I think??? It's been a few years. They seemed to work well for me.

I know I tried some washable ones and was wondering why I wasted my money. They were terrible and didn't work at all for me!

Lansinoh were my faves. I leaked heavily for 10 months.

I would wake up and take the pads out and if I tossed them in the trash they would THUD like a full diaper! HAHA! I wish I could ring out that milk since I couldn't pump worth a crap!

I wasn't a huge leaker so I liked the johnson and johnson ones because they were thin and not too noticable in my bras. I also got some reuseable ones from WIC that were pretty nice.

During the day I used organic cotton reusable nursing pads. I didn't leave much during the day, usually only while I was nursing her on one side, with let down the other side would leak. I was a major leaker at night though, because she'd sleep 8-10hrs. At night I used disposables, either Lansino or Playtex I think?? Whichever was available or cheaper when I'd go to buy more.
