  • Disposable ones are really itchy. Gerber makes some nice cloth ones or check online for hemp (anti microbial) pads. They are very absorbent and non itchy.

  • i never nursed but the first couple weeks i had to wear them cause i was leaking gallons and my shirt and bra would get completely drenched, the wal mart brand ones were great

  • I've always used Gerber disposables and Lansinoh disposables, both were very comfortable and absorbant

  • For me, the Lansinoh pads were the best. They are the biggest and bulkiest, but the thinner ones tended to scrunch up and miss the drips and itch me . . . .
    I have to be honest, though, most of the time, if I didn't have anywhere to go, I would just let my cotton shirts catch the leaks and change those a few times a day.

  • Lansinoh disposables
    I agree with CrazyMommy87. I love the Lansinoh ones...they're thin and soft.

  • I never liked any of the disposable ones - they all itched to me! I always got the reusable ones, they seemed much softer.

  • I was partial to the Lansino disposables, even though they're more expensive - thinner, bigger around, fitted instead of flat, very comfortable.

  • I got a package of reusable ones, and I've liked they are cheaper. I think I bought all mine at Babies R Us for about $2 a pair. I'm not typically a huge leaker though.

  • Oh, I will also say I did buy a box of panty liners and cut them in half once after my first. They are dirt cheap and thin.
