    Default Nursing pads?

    Any recommendations on nursing pads? I am buying the throw away ones at the moment and using lots!

    Will I always need nursing pads?!

    Some do some don't I've found around 3 months when my supply settled I didn't need them anymore. I didn't need them at all the 3rd time I used some cloth ones the first 2 times I think they were tommy tippee? The bottle brand. If your after nice ones scarlet eve do really pretty ones

    I used the Avent ones - washable and come in a pack of 6. They do feel a bit bulky and you need to change them regularly but I found them softer on my nipples - for some reason the disposable ones felt like sandpaper... I only used them for about 3 months as random leaking had settled down by then :-)

    I bought the tommy tippy washable ones and I really liked them, I had to use them until about 8 months.

    I used the avent ones too and really like them- I bought 3 packets and it was good cos then I only washed them every 3-4 days. I leaked heaps as I had/have oversupply issues generally. I stopped leaking when DD was 6mths old I think.

    In the first 6 wks I go through 8-10 a day.

    I was quite full and tender for the first few months of feeding and loved using hydro gel disks, they are like jelly and stick to your skin and are very soothing and cool!

    Thanks - I love the idea of the pretty cloth pads but think I would lose them too! Think I bought a box of washable ones somewhere, will have to dig them out and have a look.
    Also have some hydrogel ones - what are they designed for??

    I also really liked the johnsons ones in the purple box. They were shaped to fit perfectly and were very absorbent. The cloth ones I lost at night so I would use the disposable ones at night but I never had a problem during the day with losing them.
