Best Nursing Pads

What do you think are the best nursing pads?

I tried the Gerber ones and they just bundled up in the wash. Then my boobs just looked bumpy!

Also, do you sleep with a bra on? I found that I leaked at night. What to do?

Re: Best Nursing Pads

i sleep in a nursing cami with nursing pads. for the first 4-6 weeks i use my OBV/hemp pads with wool backing. for going out i tend to grab the contoured bamboo pads(wool or fleece backing). ive found that i cant do PUL at all so i stick to wool backed most of the time but dont have any issues with fleece. ive been using this batch of pads for 2.5 years and they still look and work great.
i also like the bamboo/zorb pads for heavy let downs. they are super absorbent.

Re: Best Nursing Pads

I use Lansinoh sposie pads. I most def sleep with them and a bra. I have huge over active let downs and get drowned with out anything on!

Re: Best Nursing Pads

I sleep in a non-underwire nursing bra (baby co-sleeps sometimes) with Lansinoh sposies (my favorite!). I've gone padless a couple nights, but I inevitably leak...a lot.

Re: Best Nursing Pads

For cloth pads I highly recommend Megaroos they are so soft and dont hold in any stink. The gerber ones I felt never came completely clean. For sposie ones I liked Lansinoh. And for night time I wear a tank with a shelf bra or a nursing tank

Re: Best Nursing Pads

I love my Homestead Emporium ones. I buy unlined, but she sells supersoaker pads too with a backing on them. I really love the shape and the way they contour to my body.

Re: Best Nursing Pads

Definitely recommend the Megaroos. They are the only washable ones I've found that I don't leak through, but as for disposables, Lansinol all the way. BTW, there is no way I would be able to sleep bra-less. I tried it once and I was soaked, bed and all, within two hours.
