Wool is natural and easy to care for plus the antibacterial properties...gotta love it.

The silicone pads are great especially if you are wearing a top that you can see all lines through
I just received the cashmere ones I bought from Luxe for a friend who's expecting. The pkg says for light to medium let down, or something like that. So, cashmere at least, is not for super soakin' mamas!

Wool is super easy to care for, and only needs to be done about every few weeks......

WASHING: Fill Basin with Lukewarm water. Wet wool item, add wool wash (liquid or bar...baby shampoo works too), creating suds. Swish the woolen and allow the lanolin to reach all the pores of the wool. Soak for 15 minutes. Drain basin. Gently squeeze (do NOT twist) and air dry.

LANOLIZING: (Only needed every 3-4 washings, if you are using a lanolin rich wool wash) In a small jar add a pea size amount of lanolin (solid or liquid...Lansinoh even works) to HOT water with a drop of baby shampoo or liquid wool wash. Shake to mix thoroughly. Add mixture to sink basin filled with lukewarm water and dampened wool. Swish and allow to soak for 20 minutes. Drain basin. Gently squeeze (do NOT twist) and air dry.

And, I've got a bunch in stock.....if you're interested, see HERE.

i have the lily pads too. i like them! i also use mine at night cause i hate sleeping in a bra. lil miss sleeps between 8-12 hours and i soak thru the disposables. lily pads don't get anything anywhere. just have to be careful when taking it off sometimes cause it will literally hold the milk in. when you take it off, the milk will drip off the pad. but that isn't too often and when i was REALLY engored.

Please somebody correct me if I am wrong here, but if you can't use lanolin, (allegry?) then I would think that wool pads wouldn't work for you. If that's the case, I'd look for something with a microfiber interior (don't want that touching your skin, but if your letdown is that heavy...) to soak up a lot.

Yes, that makes sense, PP.
OP--I use 6-layer hemp jersey pads daily and, after prepping them, they've only been full enough to leave a wet mark once (when I went WAY too long w/o pumping/BFing.) Another option is to have some PUL backed so they CAN'T leak. I like that the hemp is thin enough that they don't show lines...

Re: All this talk of all cloth-cloth nursing pad ??

How does the wool look under form fitting clothing? I have never found a cloth nursing pad that didn't look ridiculous under my clothes. I LOVE my bravado ones for at home and night but they are pretty bulky. They are great for a heavy let down.

I have looked into the Lily Padz but I am pretty prone to thrush and I worry about something that doesn't breath. I might try them just for outing though.

Honestly, I can never see them under my clothing. but I don't wear a lot of form fitting stuff, thanks to my huge ta-tas.
