Re: How long did YOU leak?

since my DD is nursing schudule changes daily I leak a lot. Some days she goes every 1.5 hours between feedings then the next she goes 3 hours between feedings but my breast are used to 1.5 hours so they have a let down and yup I leak! Anyways she is 5 months and I leak still. Now w/ my DS I stoped at about 8 weeks

Re: How long did YOU leak?

Well this thread is sure discouraging. The pads look so ridiculous under thin summer shirts. I can't wear white at all. I'm looking forward to winter so that maybe thick sweaters and sweatshirts will hide the bulge of the breast pads. I HATE the dripping. I drip almost non-stop. 2 months post-partum.

Sha buddy.. I"m with you.. time to go and invest in some better cloth pads!!!

PS.. I don't mean to spam.... it's more of a rave though--- but the cloth nursing pads I got today are the best ever (and I"ve tried quite a few cloth ones!)... they're from ComfyCozyDiapers (that's her SN on here too)... they are her Mommy's Touch Breast Pads... they are so soft and absorbant... I haven't had to change all day long (which is a freakin' Christmas miracle!!)

Re: How long did YOU leak?

I'm just a wreck! I hate wearing bras b/c I get clogged ducts so often and I've already had two mastisis that had me in bed feeling HORRIBLE. Problem is I go through so many shirts a day b/c I'm like a dripping faucet! Like I said, I'm just a wreck!

Re: How long did YOU leak?

Have you ever worn those shelf-tanks? To me they offer little to no support so maybe clogged ducts wouldn't be too bad of an issue... but they hold pads in!

I have a couple that I've "outgrown" and just haven't bought anymore. Most of them are spaghetti strap and I can't do those. I cannot find one with thick straps though. We're kinda broke and I spend my extra $ on the kids or coffee!

I've never leaked. Not at all! The down side is that I was never able to pump very much either. Maybe 2oz tops. Ds is 11 months.
