Question Where can I find some REALLY absorbant cloth breast pads?

As much as I don't like using disposable breast pads, I have found that the only ones that have been able to contain leakage for me are the Lansinoh disposable ones.

Now, the box I have is almost empty and I really don't want to have to buy another one!

So, what kind of WAHM made ones or otherwise...they just have to work! can you recommend that will soak up a bunch (it seems to be a bit better now that I have been nursing for 7 months ) and that look natural and aren't going to give me "bullseye boob" Breathable is a bonus too!

I'd like to know too. I'm still pregnant right now, but with my last 3 I started leaking at about 6 months. So I may need them soon.

Try Lana wool pads! They are AWESOME and sooooo soft! I will never again use a disposable or cotton one again! They are wool so only need to be washed/lanolized on occasion (I get away with every month or two!). OK commercial over!

I dont know about Lana wool bc I never used them, but any wool pads or even wool backed pads are great. Also hemp /fleece cotton are super absorbant without too much bulk.
I think the only ones that kinda hide that odd circle look are tear drop shaped pads and I only know of ones by little lambs (which I hate). Maybe look around the diffrent WAHM sites for some.

I'll have to check out the Lana ones Wool would be great if I don't have to wash them every time they get a little wet!

Anyone have any WAHM recommendations ?

TIA!
