    Default Breastfeeding Pads - Bamboo V's Cotton?

    Hi Ladies,

    Just wondering what people’s experience is with Bamboo Breastfeeding pads? I am looking at ordering some reusable ones online and am tossing up between the bamboo ones or just the plain cotton nursing pads from Avent/Medela etc.

    Thanks

    I bought and used some bamboo ones off ebay. In the early days they didn't really cut it in relation to absorbancy.

    I stopped using them for a long while, then started using them again when I cut my supply down (and didn't have really leaky boobs anymore) and I quite liked them.

    So I would say, they are good, but not if you have very leaky boobs

    Yes, I used to use the Rite Aid disposables, I found them to be the best.
