Nursing pads work great for me.

I use a towel or a receiving blanket. I hope it eventually stops. It's a bit overwhelming!

Re: what do u use to catch letdown

I feel the same way!

You can get breast shells that catch your milk let down..I have some, I just haven't gotten around to using them yet, LOL..had them with DS#1, and I steralized them before the baby was born...lol..then put them away!

Mine used to spray so much that I (for a while) would actually put a bottle up and save it. It's a shame ds never took a bottle!

I used nursing pads for awhile, but now that's she's older and not nurseing as much it's not that bad so I just grab an extra PF and it gets the job done!

Re: what do u use to catch letdown

Oh boy, I'm due with my fourth in less than two weeks and this is one part of having a newborn that I completely forgot about! Thanks for reminding me! I have a very strong letdown and the milk on the other side comes gushing out! I have a bunch of small Chinese prefolds that I reserve specifically for burp cloths and catching the milk from the other side. So if I'm at home and no one's around but family, I just stuff it in my bra. If I'm away from home or someone's over, though, I just let the nursing pad catch it. I prefer to use the cloth diaper though to conserve pads!
