I bought washable breastpads at Wal-Mart. They came 4 in a package for $3.50 and I bought 3 packages. I haven't had much problem with leakage, though, so maybe that is why I can get by with fewer pads? Anyway, to answer the question, yes, I use cloth nursing pads.

I use the cloth/washable breastpads and am very happy with them. The ones i have were a gift, so im not sure where they came from. I have about 12-14 and i just throw them in the wash. Since im washing baby clothes so much, I havnt ran out yet.

I love them. I have thought about making some too, especially some super think ones for at night cause I am a total leaker. My nipples really start to hurt when I use dispossibles for too long. I also bought a pair of LilyPadz (they are silicone "pads" they don't absorb just hold your nipples in). I leak too much for them but the cotton ones are so comfortable.

I bought some Kushi (I think) ones and they are WONDERFUL!! The gerber ones I tried sucked....I also bought some Lasinoh ones and they work

I have some we bought. But I've made a whole bunch also. I make clothe diapers and have high grade fleece and have been using it to make nursing pads

I used cloth nursing pads with all of my girls. I bought a 3 sets when my oldest was 6 weeks old(I didn't leak prior to that). I used the same 6 pads for all 3 of my girls.

I use cotton breastpads and they are comfy (soft and cushy, they're made with 6 layers of flannel cotton) and work fine. I bought mine at Sears and I think I paid $5 or 6 a pkg and in each there were 3 sets of pads.

I started out using cloth breast pads, but then I got thrush and my nipples were always saturated. I had 10 pads and seemed like they were always wet from milk, or still wet from being washed out (I don't have a washer/dryer). So since I needed something that would prevent leaks and would help clear up my thrush issue, I got a box of Lansinoh breast pads. OMG I LOVE THEM!! They totally wick away the moisture and I got a box of 60 for $7 at Wally world.

I tried cloth pads too but with thrush and heavy leaking and then I could see the outside of them through my shirt.

I switched to wool nursing pads - you only need two pair, they help prevent thrush & clogged ducts & ill never use cotton or disposable nursing pads again!
