What brand/style bra and tank/shirts? are they cheap and comfy?
What brand of breast pads do you find work best?
I need to find a nursing bra. I didn't buy one before my baby was born because I wanted to wait to make sure I stuck with BFing. I have just been wearing my genie bra. Which works great because it slides up really easy, but it is kinda a pain for NIP. I pretty much have to always use a cover to nurse discreetly. I like that it is very supportive and comfy.
I also need some tank tops. I have tons of regular camis and tanks but it would be easier to have a few nursing ones.
Currently I'm using the NUK reusable breast pads, but they don't stop leaks as well as I would like and they aren't that comfy. It's not really the thickness of the pads but the width. When I leak you can see what looks like a coaster stain on my shirt. It is like the pad doesn't cover my whole nipple.
The pads I have found that work best are the Advent disposables. I use the overnight protection. I love how soft they feel, but I hate that they are disposables!
Also do you wear a bra at night? If not how do you keep breast pads in place? I hate having to wear a bra 24/7. Even my super comfy genie bra gets old after a while.
