  • lol. I never used the reusable. But I did use the disposable and they always ended up leaking so I would put on two sets. But to go time, I actually used an always pad! hahaha..oh worked,lol.

  • I always like the reusable ones I had better than the disposable - I think they were Gerber brand, but I'm not sure. I never had any problem with them leaving fabric all over.

  • I also use the Gerber brand & never have a problem. Which ones are you using? That's way annoying..

  • I use cloth diaper, cloth wipes, and reusable menstrual products. And, I hate cloth nursing pads, and always use disposable.

  • I never used the reusable ones, but in my expereinces with the disposable ones, the Gerber ones are much better!! They're thinner & less noticable, but I keep a box of the Johnson's ones on hand if I happen to run out! They're not too bad either, just a lil bulkier. & that sounds like no fun at all as far as leaving fabric on your nipples!!! Do you put anything on your nipples after you nurse, like the lanolin stuff? That may be why it leaves fabric....that happend to me with one type of disposable nursing pads that I used...
