Fabric for cloth nursing pads?

Hi ladies!!

I'm planning to make myself some cloth nursing pads. For those of you that use these, what are your favorite fabrics for them? I have some cotton flannel, an all natural cotton batting-like material, and some fleece. I have seen several different types of cloth nursing pads out there on the market.

I was thinking of maybe making some with the natural cotton batting-like material on the inner, and then cotton flannel on the outside. I also thought of maybe making some with the fleece to have a 'stay-dry' effect.

What do you all think?? TIA!!

I used cotton flannel on the outside and inside, and then in the middle I had a layer or auto towel. I think next time though I might opt for some fleece on the outside though.
