homemade nursing pads

I am planning to make some home made nursing pads based on some tutorials I say online with the 3:1 ratio... 3 layers of flannel with a layer of fleece on the back.

What would you say is a good number of sets to make?? Im assuming these get washed with regular clothes laundry and I do that about every 3 days or so.

also any other input or suggestions is much appreciated! thanks!

Depends on how much you leak? I have 12 sets and that is just enough to change before bed which is when I leak the most because my guy sleeps so much

Re: homemade nursing pads

Is it possible to felt wool enough to make a few sets of pads out of a recycled sweater without sewing? I don't have a machine, but I do have several sweaters...
