  • Lol I used to wear always pads in my bra cause I leaked so much. I literally soaked a whole shirt while in the doctors, I had only just fed the baby also.

  • Nursing pads is all you can do. I stopped leaking around 5 months so it might stop sometime for you too!

  • Tighter bras and nursing pads. I still leaked horribly especially during growth spurts.

  • Have you tried the Lily Padz brand pads? I'd recommend them.

  • I leaked really badly in the beginning. It slowed down and eventually stopped. I don't remember when. It was a gradual thing and I realized that I didn't need to wear the nursing pads anymore.
