Who uses then? Where did you get them? I am blowing through disposables and would like to save money here. Do you make them or buy them? Pics.?

I have bamboobies and love them. I got them on Amazon. They have heart shaped thinner ones and really think round ones. I also have a pair of lilypadz that just stick on. They are kind of expensive but it's so nice not to have to wear a bra to bed which is when I wear them the most.

Heart shaped bamboobie on left. Also came with a hot pink pair and light pink pair and the round ones are bigger and blue. Lilypadz on right. One fell under my couch so I need to dig it out. I also go two pair of round cloth ones when I ordered my udder cover but I just leak through those. The bamboobies have a leak proof back and it works great.

I had some cotton cloth ones but I leaked right through in seconds. I've heard good things about the ones the pp has but I've never used them.

I haven't needed them personally, a friend uses the bamboobies and loves them!

Might be stupid question but how do they stick on?

The Lilly padz? I believe that they're silicone and stick to the skin.

They are sticky on one side. They sell wash but when reading reviews someone said they used Dawn so that's what I use. Wash with hot water, it will not feel sticky at all but when dries will be sticky again. Really cool. It will sometimes puddle a little milk in there but I just dump it in the sink, rinse off and stick it back on. Have leaked out a couple times too when I was still getting engorged at night.

You have to be careful with these because they hold the milk against the breast and can lead to thrush.

That's another reason I only use them at night and not even every night. I pumped at 12 and now he woke at 5 probably b/c it is so cold in here and is nursing now so no problems. I don't usually pump at night but I am having surgery in 2 weeks so I need enough milk to last while he is with my mom.
