  • I really like Lanisol brand. They are flat and VERY absorbent! I have tried Avent but they are extremely VISIBLE even when dry and it looks like coasters in your bra. I have also had the nice washable cloth ones. They are NOT water proof, only absorbent. I would try Lanisol if you can!

  • I use Johnson and Johnson, there shaped like your breast and very absorbent, I ve used them all and they are def the best in my opinion!

  • I also used the Lansinoh brand. I liked them very much. I had washable cloth ones too, but I would have to double up because sometimes I leaked through.

  • I used the Lansinoh as well, but wasn't a fan. They were the largest I tried, but they kept wrinkling up on me, so they weren't so asthetically pleasing. I also tried the Avent (I think!), which were smaller but thicker, but those were also bulky. The last two I've bought were Gerber, and those are my favorite. Other than occasionally being able to see the outline of them through my shirt, I forget they're there.

    I've tried cotton reusable ones as well, but after a few uses, they've become really uncomfortable. They're clean, but have lost their softness...and I've leaked through a few times (definitely at night!). They're nice for use when you're staying home and don't have to worry about wet t-shirts, but otherwise, yuck!
