I've been bfing for 2 1/2 weeks... I've tried several different brands of breastpads, and even resorted to cut-up maxi-pads to soak up the leakage! Fortunately, my bras have held up well to the almost constant soakings. (I bought Bestform from Wal*Mart.)

Does anybody have any suggestions on a good, durable breastpad that will last longer than 20 minutes??

have you tried the lansinoh ones? i was leaking every hour about with the gerber pads...even with doubling them up and i found the lansinoh pads are a lifesaver. i can even go overnight with them w/o a problem!

the box i bought was about 11$ a little expensive for mike and i's budget but they are soooo worth it!

ditto! I've tried almost every brand, and while I don't have a big problem with leaking, I've found that the Lansinoh ones are the only ones that stay in place. The other brands move around so much that I do leak. Even with the stick tabs.

Justmommies predictions for your labor and childbirth:

Just about the time you think you can't handle hearing one more "when is that baby going to pop?", your baby will decide to make it's appearance. We predict your baby will be born 3-7 days before your due date. Your baby will most likely be born in the evening. Justmommies predicts that your baby will weigh approximately 8.8 pounds and that your labor will be about 11 hours long.

Oh I *so* agree with these girls!!

LOVE them! I tried the other brands when in a pinch (my cousin had given me some Aveda and Gerber and J&J that she had leftover from her 2 week attempt at nursing) and NONE of them even came CLOSE!!!

Hmmm...I think I'm going to have to try those! I've been using the Avent and they work pretty good. I don't like the J&J at all.

When I was b/f DD Lansinoh were the only ones that I could use. I had DH rush out several times and get them because I absolutely couldn't live w/o them!

I agree that Lansinoh are the best! I also have Avent. They work but get this weird consistency when wet.

Yea!! I was trying to decide which ones to buy at Target (there were so many brands to choose from) and in the end I went with Lansinoh b/c I have their nipple cream. So glad I made the "right" choice!!!

I'm a heavy leaker - I was using Curity brand until I discovered Lily Padz. No more leaking period! Plus they are washable/reusable.

I bought mine through eBay. But you can purchase them at Maternity stores or through Lilypadz.com

I like Lansinoh. They are worth the extra money. Never leaked through them once!!!

I just got LilyPadz and I like them too!!! I won't have to spend money on nursing pads again!!!

I've found a new favorite, myself. I bought the Gerber Ultra Thins, and THEY'RE GREAT! I've been leaking so much lately, and for skinny little pads, they sure hold a lot of milk! And they aren't bulky at all... I love 'em!!

I use J&J. I am a really haevy leaker and those are the only ones that work for me and don't leak through, plus they have sticky backs to hold them in place.

I use Bravado re-useables which are great, but for discreet pads, I LOVE J & J. they're absorbent & you can't see them thru the tightest of shirts (great for yoga classes!!)

Angiegirl & mom2Silas&Aidan how are the Lilypads? Can you use them if you're prone to Thrush? I saw no meantion of that on the web site
