I'm breastfeeding my three month-old and quickly got sick of buying nursing pads. Not only are they expensive and wasteful but they are large (I don't leak THAT much) and bulky. I tried the reusable ones but they were completely obvious though my shirt.
A couple weeks ago I decided to cut a Kotex Lightday liner in half and it worked SO much better. I have the peace of mind that I won't leak through my shirt, there is much more adhesive so the thing stays firmly in place, and it's much thinner. Monetary bonus? Less than two bucks for thirty (that I cut and double) instead of about $7 for the same number of nursing pads.
Anyone else have any tips for managing pads (or leaks)?
