Re: How many pairs of cloth nursing pads?

I had 6 pairs. I usually only went through 3 or 4 before washing them. I washed them with the diapers every other day. I used the disposables for the first few weeks in addition to the reusable, because I leaked so bad....I had to change every hour, so it would have been impossible to keep up with washing! I used the Gerber ones with my first 2 children, but got MOE stay dry pads with ds....well worth the extra money!! And I am one who had to use them until ds weaned, if he looked at me....I leaked!

Re: How many pairs of cloth nursing pads?

Wow! I was planning on getting Lanacare wool nursing pads, and I though I only needed 2 pairs...Looks like I might need to re-think *that* strategy!

Re: How many pairs of cloth nursing pads?

I have 30 pairs of reusable nursing pads. Don't think I'm insane. I buy them when I find them on sale, because at 9 months into nursing I STILL leak like it was the first day my milk came in. Also I keep ruining the dang things. I set 6 on fire in my microwave (I only had 6 and was trying to dry them out.) and about once every load of laundry one gets sucked against the back of the dryer and burns. So yeah... I have a lot, but I haven't had to buy any disposables in a long time.

well...as long as you aren't a HEAVY leaker you should be fine with that many for wool as you can just switch out every feeding or everytime they get damp as the wool ones don't need to be washed after they get damp, only when they stiff or stinky...just like cd wool.

with the regular cloth ones once they get wet they have to be washed
