How long did YOU leak?

DS will be 6 weeks old tomorrow and I'm still needing to change cloth nursing pads at least ever other feeding. THey arn't soaked.. but they are wet enough that it's uncomfortable. I just got a new pair of nursing pads from a WAHM here that are soo fabulous.. but I'm not sure if the leaking will ever slow down--does it?? I know it's different for every woman.. but what does the majority say?

How long did you leak?

Kolten is almost 15 mos. and I still leak SOMETIMES. Most times, not unless its been awhile since he's nursed. But I'd say the first 6 mos. or so, I was changing my nursing pads ALL the time.

Re: How long did YOU leak?

my DS is 8 months and sometimes i still leak a little... but i dont HAVE to wear them now unless I am going out and dont want a letdown uh oh spot HAHA.. but usually its only when its been a bit since he has nursed.

I finally stopped having to wear them all the time about a month ago... when he just turned 7 months.

I leaked about 3 weeks with my first and not at all with my second. My SIL though, leaks the entire time she nurses so far, 20 months and she's pg with #2.

I leak like crazy! DD is 6.5 months old. I hope it will stop some day, but I have my doubts.

You aren't gonna want to hear this, but I never have stopped leaking. DS weaned at 16 mo. then I got preggo when he was 23 ish months and literally have never been compelety dry for a week at a time. As far as leaking all the time, it was probably around 10/11 mo. This time I'm going to try lillypads.

Re: How long did YOU leak?

I'm still leaking my dd is 8 1/2 months old, it has slowed down - I had to change throughout the day till she was about 6 months old, now I just have to wear one pair a day which is way better.

Taci is 5 months old and I still leak almost constantly. It's horrible and almost like a little river(which would be a stream,right? )
I'm looking into some hemp nursing pads since all I've ever used are sposies and it's getting embarrassing and expensive
