Re: how many breast pads to should i get?

Actually, I highly recommend checking out Megaroos Designs if you need more pads. She takes custom orders and they're great!

ETA: I only need 2 pairs now, over 4 months post partum, because my leaking is pretty light now. In the early days when I was leaking a lot more I probably would have gone through two pairs of pads in one day (I didn't start using my flannel pads until about 3 months pp), thus needing more pairs. I'm a heavy leaker though, and I know not all moms need pads as badly as I do. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
you wash them with the diapers i thought i read to wash them with delicates? maybe that was something else
