*Update* Lansinoh changed their nursing pads :-(

I used them religiously with my middle kiddo, for the TWO YEARS I needed nursing pads 24/7.

So, I stockpiled those suckers before having DD. They worked just as wonderfully as they had 4 years earlier. Finally ran out and grabbed a new box Sunday. They are now "new and improved".

Yeah. Right. For the first time since I gave birth I've leaked. Even those first couple weeks of porn star boob engorgement and leaking like niagra falls I never had an issue. But now, after almost 4 months I'm leaking through and having to change them about 2x as often. Screw that, I'll buy the cheaper ones at this rate.

*Update*
I emailed their customer service with my issues. They are sending me a box of the old style ones to make up for it. :-) I'm extremely pleased, and will hopefully be able to just find the old style for a while yet.

They have a weird honeycomb pattern in them now that "supposedly" helps with absorption....I'm not seeing it.

Have you tried cloth pads?
The lansinoh were too thick for me and the Gerber ones didn't absorb well, so I switched to cloth and even though I had to still change them fairly often, I saved money.

I use the Lansinoh ones also but I haven't seen these new ones you're talking about yet.

There are two different kinds now.  You probably grabbed thinking they were the same.  The others still exist.

It's the exact same 60 count box.....disposable nursing pads. Also just checked(recycling hasn't been picked up yet lol), same UPC as the other ones.

I tried cloth with my middle, and was soaked through them with an hour. Didnt even want to bother this time around because I knew what worked. They may be worth a second look now.

Whoa. How you bend your thumb like that? ;-)

I am a pretty heavy leaker, but I use Bamboobies and they work pretty well. I have to change them twice a day, but they are pretty good. 

I hate when companies mess with a good thing. Sorry they changed your favorite.
