Hi all,

I need rec's for the reusable/washable nursing pads. I bought the Gerber ones but noticed that they are not as large as the disposable Lansinoh ones and last night I leaked while wearing them. (I was useing the disposable Lansinoh ones too----).

If anyone has used all 3 brands, or has experience w/ them, can you tell me which one is the largest, most absorbant and discrete? I would appreciate it VERY much!

P.S-- I checked thier websites but they don't list the circumfrence of the pads.

Ditto! I used the Gerber ones and had to double up sometimes to keep from leaking. At night, I used the Lansinoh disposable pads so I didn't leak all over during the night. I've heard that wool pads work much better and are very absorbant. They are more expensive, but you should only need 1-2 pairs. I plan to get some for this baby if I leak anything like I did with DD.

I have heard great things about the wool ones here. I bought regular cotton reusable ones from that same website and they are very comfy and large, although I was/still am a very heavy leaker so sometimes I would leak out the sides.

I use Kushies and think they are great. If I were to say a downside? They may need ironing if you're going to wear a tighter shirt because they kinda stick out because they are thicker.
