point me to big, leakproof cloth nursing pads (wahm?)

I'm lookig for some leakproof nursing pads that are bigger than 4 inches. I need them to be discreet and absorbant. Am I aiming too high? LOL! I also can't wait forever for them to be made because I will be doing some plane travel starting January 18.

I'm intrigued by the EC store pads, but I don't know how big they are.

Re: point me to big, leakproof cloth nursing pads (wahm?)

I got some great nursing pads from a mama here on DS. Her DS name is todzwife (if you want to pm her) and her web address is piggyprefolds.com . The site is Funny Farm Creations. She made me some hemp pads backed in wool and I have yet to leak through them. And I was previously having trouble with my hemp SB pads leaking straight through them! She can also make them in a larger size. Just give her your cup size and any specifications. She was super quick with my order! Check her out.

I have yet to find cloth pads that I don't leak through with let down. I'm a huge sprayer!
But Johnson and Johnson disposables are great. Hard to find, but I can get through a day with just 1 pair.

I second that.. they were always in stock at our wal-mart until about a couple months ago... I DONT like the ELAN ones by evenflo.. they have that lanolin on them.. feel all greasy and to me they stink when they are wet YUCK>>> the curity ones are what I use while at home.. they work alright they are cheap but you can totally see them.. they are just flat circles..

I have not found any cloth nursing pads that don't shift, show through my clothes AND leak. They are too small too. I like Lansinoh disposable nursing pads. They last me all day and don't show through my clothes.

I make some that are 5 inches in diameter...hemp fleece, hemp ft or organic cotton fleece.
You can also get them topped in silk to help sore cracked nipples!

Re: point me to big, leakproof cloth nursing pads (wahm?)

Well, they're wool, not cloth, but I LOVE my large Lana wool nursing pads. My son is 11 months and I've leaked through one time that I can recall. I use the "regular" ones. They have ones called "Ekstra" that are supposed to be more leakproof than the regular ones. Mine are 7" in diameter and so discreet, I can't hardly stand anything smaller now because they show right through.

LANA - highly recommended!

I've found that I use cloth pads at home and Lansinoh disposables out and about. I could leak out a million ounces and still be dry in those. They are thin and sooo absorbent.

I also bought some LilyPadz and LOVE those, they really work! sorry, not much help in the wahm part though
