Best cloth nursing pads?

What do you recommend for cloth nursing pads? I was thinking of trying these: http://www.etsy.com/listing/61366324...sable-washable. Does it matter if it's contoured or not? Opinions?

Wool pads from Covered Caboose. The pads are great but the 'breast blankets' rock!

Bumping UP!!

What's good for leak-proof?

I have a HEAVY letdown when I'm nursing and my other breast will FLOOD! I'm looking for a great washable pad to use instead of disposables!!

This is also what I'm kinda looking for. I soak through wool, so I need another solution to soaking it up and not leaking.

The ones I have are from etsy by HippieMade, they are not contoured and made of flannel with pul. They were very reasonable and absorb well - no leaking through for me. Only complaint is you can see them with certain clothes/bras, not sure if contoured ones make a difference with that.

I bought a Milkies Milk Saver and use it on my non-nursing breast or non-pumping breast. It's kind of expensive (I managed to get it on sale) but it works pretty well for catching letdown and all you do is wash it out when you're done. I like not wasting my letdown milk

Oh that too! If I was at home I would use the milkies milk saver and it would fill up and over flow before my son was done so I would have to stop and empty it, but it's to big and clunky to use in public. It worked great until my dog ate it!
I leak so much I soak through everything, wool, pul, sposies (tried lansinoh samples once only lasted half a feed before my shirt soaked through).
I use wool when not nursing since one breast is constantly leaking! When nursing I used the milkies at home until my dog ate it. When out and about I would stick a cd in there since I mostly nurse when babywearing so it's not like anyone would notice how lumpy I was However I prefer to use the breast blankets because if I triple them it absorbs everything and I can let them air dry to use later on.
When you leak as much as I do there really is nothing discrete to wear! So my vote is still for wool because it can be reused once it dries instead of having to be washed again.

I had to laugh as I read this just because that so feels like how I was with DS! I used to keep one burp cloth under DS' face because he couldn't keep up with how much milk was coming out and one on the other breast, they would both be soaked by the end! This did subside though after a few months, oh the joys I have to look forward to with our new little one! I honestly can't wait!
