I just seen this product called lily pads. They are supposed to be a green solution to breast feeding pads. Has anyone heard of them or tried them before?

I had read some reviews on them before and decided against spending the money. I think it was that they only last a couple of months, so you're spending the same amount on them as you would on disposable pads anyway...and technically, these are disposable too. I prefer cloth pads. I really like the shape of Bamboobies because they will contour to your breast and since I'm not a super heavy leaker, they work great. I ended up buying 2 pair, then making my own with hemp terry, organic bamboo velour, and PUL. I made enough to last a week, used them throughout my last baby, lent them to a friend, and just got them back and they're still in great shape.

I have never heard of them. Where does the milk go if they are not absorbant? I don't get it? LOL

I have some cloth ones and I actually have a box from when I had dd still leftover that I have been saving! I want to get some more cotton ones.

They are supposed to prevent you from leaking.

They're supposed to prevent leaking, but if you read the reviews on Amazon, you'll see that they're hard to apply correctly and a lot of women end up getting infections from milk that's pooled up inside them, or they end up just leaking all over.

I had them and really liked them. They did a good job of keeping the milk from leaking. So you dno't have to feel wet. I am planning to use them again.

Good to know! I used cloth pads last time and loved them. The disposable ones are so scratchy. I may try the lilypadz even if it's just for running

I've used both the lily pads and washable pads. I liked the lily pads when I was going out to say dinner or date night. I used the washable pads more for when I was at home.

I almost bought them with DD, but I read something that said they could cause clogged ducts and/or infections. I didn't think it was worth the risk. I used cloth and they were great.
