Washable breast pads...

When I had my older two kids I was able to get washable breast pads through WIC. But they only give you one pair, and I tend to leak a good bit so I still had to use disposables or a washrag shoved in my bra once they were soaked through. I'm sure I'll be able to get another set from WIC with this one, but I got rid of the old ones I had less than a month before finding out I was pregnant (because we did everything to make sure that didn't happen again & I didn't think I would need them).

Anyways, does anyone know where I can get some? I've never seen them in maternity stores or anything, so I'm thinking I'll have to look online. But I'm not sure where.

  • Etsy!

    Since you need extra absobant ones you can find ones you like and custom order them from the seller. Then you are giving your money to a real person for a hand made item instead of a big corperation that makes their products in China.

  • I got mine at Target with my first. But this time I am making my own. Going through 2 kids. My other ones needed to go.

  • I got mine at Babies R Us. The only ones I could find at WalMart were the disposable ones and I really don't like the way they feel as much)

  • WalMart, Target, Babies R Us, etc. I found mine at WalMart, but I'm not sure if they still sell them. I haven't had a reason to look, but they had them two years ago. I'm pretty sure Target and Babies R Us do. Motherhood Maternity would probably also have them. You could order them online, too.
