Choosing a good nursing pad is as personal as choosing a feminine protection product! lol
I wanted to know which brand is your favorite and what ONE feature makes it so great for you!

Lansinoh is my favorite, because I leaked a LOT for the first 6 months and STILL leak, even though my baby is about to be 9 months old! Lansinoh were the ONLY ones that I tried that would last during the first few weeks! Yes, I was changing pads every feeding, but the other brands leaked between feedings which was so annoying! I got tired of my bra smelling like cheese lol (sorry if tmi!)

I use the lansinoh but just bought a box of curity since they were 5.00 cheaper. They work well at keeping my shirt dry but they are so bulky and thick you can totally tell I am wearing a breast pad. I only wear them at night now since thats when I need the extra protection.

I use the Curity pads at home because they are cheaper, they are a little bulky, but do absorb well. When I go somewhere where and care what I look like, I use the Lansinoh pads because they don't show and absorb super well, but I try to use them less because of their more expensive price.

I voted for LilyPadz. I'm hooked on them this time and I'm a heavy leaker. With my boys and up to a couple of weeks ago I used Curity brand.

I like the Target brand. They are less expensive, they're wrapped in two-packs (so they're not all crushed and battered in the diaper bag!), and they are very absorbent! They have a small adhesive strip, too, so they stay in place better than some brands I've used.

I just started using LilyPadz and I love them!! Don't have to worry about leaking milk at all!!!

As far as disposables goes I love Lansinoh. I've not soaked through one yet! I can't really even tell wheb their wet. Definitely worth the extra money!!

I really like the Lansinoh disposable nursing pads. I used them when I nursed my first son, and now I'm using them again this time around. I never leak through them, and they're more comfortable than the Gerber washable pads that I tried -- just too bulky for me.

I loved the Lansinoh pads too. They are so thin and contoured so you can't even tell I am wearing pads. I was worried at first that because they were so thin, they wouldn't absorb much, but I never had a problem with them leaking.

On a side note, with my other children, I leaked A LOT! Like some of you, I could spray across the room when my milk let down. This time though, I rarely leak. My daughter is 5 months old and I haven't had to wear pads for a couple of months. It's nice, but sometimes I worry that maybe I'm not producing enough milk. She is growing though and healthy so I guess she is getting enough.

I'm a big leaker too. I spray like crazy when I let down. I'm in love with Lily Padz. It's jsut so nice to not leak at all. Before the Lily padz, I loved Johnson & Johnson. But they don't seem to all be the same - I bought a box of "Johnson" (as opposed to "Johnson & Johnson"), and they weren't so great. I also use Bravado cloth pads. They're great too, but not so discreet. I hate walking around with giant circles thru my shirts!

I like the Johnson & Johnson pads. They don't show through my clothing or fold up and they keep me dry.

I love the Lansinoh pads too! They are very absorbant! I have tried Dr. Browns & they work very well too. I also tried Gerber & absolutely hated them! I woke up in a puddle both times I used them!

I've only used Lansinoh and Johnson&Johnson. I HATE the J&J ones because they stick to me! Ugh. It's not so bad anymore, but that first week when my nipples were sore, it was torture. And I only bought them because it was the ONLY box my Walmart had in stock at the time.

I use the lansinoh but its the only one I've tried. At times I can leak through these within 30 minutes. Is that strange? Should I use the washable ones or maybe the curity ones for at night?

I prefer the Lansinoh pads. I like that they are larger, have a small adhesive section (that doesn't end up leaving goo on my bra) and that they are very absorbant. I haven't had a leak yet and my baby is 3 months old. I LOVE that they are individually sealed. And I also love that they come with a small pack of wipes and storage bags.
