they work by putting pressure on your nipples, stopping you from leaking... they are the best invention ever! all you have to do is wash them off and reuse and you can even go braless with them!

Ditto!

I have heard of some women not liking them - it seems to be a love it or hate it thing.

And - also heard of several women complaining of thrush after using them (b/c theyre not breathable).

I have a pair and I use them during the day. I tried them overnight a couple nights and woke up to a huge gush that went all over my arm and the bed No surprise, my breast pads are always super full when I wake up.

What I dont like is when I feed her how the other side gets some milk in it, then I gotta try and catch it when I peel the other one off. I do like them a lot, but I find the stickiness goes away more quick than I thought it would.

I sure do. I find that after three-four feedings they stop being sticky, right from new. I use dish soap to wash them like the instructions said to use. Is there something better?
