do mama cloth nursing pads work??

i don't even know if thats what you call them , but you kwim. i go through alot of nursing pads and dh asked me the other day, when i stopp needing them, "not for awhile", dd is only 5 weeks old.

i used some of the reusable cloth ones with ds, but only for like a day cause i soaked right thu them. are mama cloth ones any beter? are they lined w/ pul so you don't leak? i might be interested in getting some if they work?

Info please, spam is great too.

Re: do mama cloth nursing pads work??

I got some hemp ones with a pul layer and they are good. Not really absorbent enough for all day but I can change them often. They were cheap too, I got 15 sets of them for like 15 bucks on ebay. Next time I will probably either get the lana wool ones (its just the kind I would need since I have a VERY strong letdown is like 25 bucks a pair and they suggest getting 2)

Re: do mama cloth nursing pads work??

I made my own out of a flannel sheet... I cut circles about 4-5 inches in diameter and for each pad sewed together 4 circles. I didn't have huge let-down issues so maybe that would be different, but they worked for me and were easy to throw in the wash.

my contoured ones would but the flat circles probably would do the same as the dr browns

Re: do mama cloth nursing pads work??

My letdowns aren't nearly as fierce now that dd is almost 11 months but I made my own out of a wool coat I had. I just cut out 2 layers of circles and sewed them together and then lanolized them. I use them every day/night :-)

Let me know if your interested in me making you a couple of sets for you. CHEAP!!!
